Fed up with just pasta and pizzas? This is the place to come. Family run restaurant with distinctive food. Excellent quality dishes and friendly service and chef. Short walk from the Duomo.

A very special experience. It's clear, the great care that staff take with every dish. Very warm and welcoming staff. The restaurant itself is "cosy" as another reviewer mentions.

We sat in the entry area, next to the deli counter. Lovely sandwiches made with fresh bread and local ingredients, lightly toasted, and a glass of cold beer. Perfect for a quick light lunch.

We ate here twice, once alone, once with friends. The food is amazing, but what was unparalleled in Florence is the dining experience at Osteria de L'Ortolano: it is like being served a formal dinner in a home. The dining area is intimate and cosy,...More

San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a
stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence,
surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking
students provides the tranquil surroundings for the
elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read
the daily newspaper. Home to several universities,
including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one
of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A
