This restaurant had two outdoor areas, one in a quieter street which was nice. The service was friendly and efficient. The food was good hearty fare. My partner had the wild boar and I the grilled salmon. Both were tasty and cooked well. I didn't expressly ask about the menu in terms of gluten free but the salmon was and... More

Aside from the smell of garbage and smelly busses passing every 5 minutes the pizza I had was definitely the worst pizza that I have had my entire visit to Italy, the bread was stale and hard which the waitress tried to explain it was the Tuscan style, which is complete bs. My entire meal consisted of seven pieces of... More

Right in the heart of the old city, Tre Merli has very good pasta dishes, served by efficient but perfunctory wait people. A good spot for lunch with friends and family. Prices are reasonable and the spaghetti pomodoro is very good!

Found this place after trying to get in at a restaurant across the street. Service was not the best but very quick and attentive. I had bruchette, my girlfriend had pate and both were tasty. Main I had calzone and she had gnocchi, nothing amazing but definitely tasty. We got a bottle of wine for €15 which seemed to be... More

My wife, daughter and I had dinner in the Tre Merli, unfortunately! There was no atmosphere, the portions were tiny and my fish was tasteless and rubbery. When we complained to the Manager, Hojni, her first words were to ask us where we were from! As if that had anything to do with anything. She was defensive and made no... More

He was doing is job like he just didn't wanted to be there. First there was just one pizza coming after 15 minutes the pasta came, than another 20 minutes... More

Pretty decent and reliable pizza and friendly staff who made a solo lady feel welcome! I went back after being disappointed with other nearby eateries.

During our stay in Santo Spirito, we decided to venture North of the river and try the first restaurant we came across. We ordered grilled vegetables with tomino melted cheese, Florentine trippa, and some of the house red. Unfortunately none of the above impressed whatsoever: the vegetables were grilled in such a way that they seemed to lose all flavour,... More

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
