We went for lunch while in Florence and plan to return every time I go. One of my traveling friends is a real "foodie" and knew about Cantinetta Antinori. We asked our waiter what he recommended, and he did not disappoint. We just ordered everything he suggested. Definitely take your time to enjoy the atmosphere as well as the delicious... More

Cantinetta Antinori holds a special place in my heart, after a close friend recommended that I go there on my first visit to Florence 20+ years ago. I've been there a handful of times since then and ensure that I visit on every trip to Florence. On this trip, we were a group of five family women from three generations,... More

Nice restaurant with a history. We tried two kinds of homemade pasta and backed fish. Rather tasty but not wow! The prices are higher than at the restaurants with better cooked food which we tried. White wine Antinori was fine! The service was very good.

We dined here and a wonderful experience as the waiter and kitchen made sure our entrees were prepared as we wanted them. The steak was served medium rare as we requested not bloody as Florentine steak is usually prepared. The pasta with white truffles was fantastic as was the dessert. The Antinori wine we had was delicious and a reason... More

Cantinetta Antinori offered everything we hoped for. The restaurant is small and quaint with dark wooden furniture. It makes you feel welcome and "at home" immediately. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. The menu offered a great variety of specialties from the region. We were up for a great treat! I had black cabbage on rustic bread as a... More

This place was recommended to me by a person who lived in Florence for 5 years. When you go here, plan to have a long lunch because you'll want to taste a few wines and you'll want to interact with the staff. They are so friendly and knowleagble of their product. We enjoyed various white wines and a very light... More

Small intimate restaurant with attentive staff. Our table was located upstairs overlooking the main room. Food was delicious with great wine selections. Be sure to make a reservation when planning your trip to Florence.

always has been one of my favorite stops in Florence. we had an amazing tagliata - but was disappointed that in the middle of truffle season, limited pasta dishes - non of which with truffles but rather shrimp - an off choice in Florence. Also missed an amazing prime rib they used to have in past. but the tagliata.... wow... More

The Antinori wine producers are very well established in Tuscany. Their wonderful palazzo was just next door to our hotel no excuse not to visit. Small, cosy restaurant with wine bar upstairs. Delicious Tuscan dishes on the menu, even more fabulous Chianti to drink! We have since bought their wine back in the UK. Highly recommend, utterly authentic experience.

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.
