Wanted to fall in love, this restaurant has so much hype and found it very average on every level. Service weak, food average and the only good part was the resturant is very interior.

Have a lovely bottle of wine and a nice seafood risotto; for the rest you can skip it. Overall the food is not so special and doesn't come close to the dinner we had in Venice the night before at Anice Stelllato. A negative review is not something I take pleasure in but I must say we were disappointed and... More

Delicious and creative cuisine, in an intimate and modern decor. We had a first course of miscellaneous cured hams (melts in your mouth) followed by a crispy suckling pig (so good!) -- Ideal for a romantic dinner or dinner with friends.

Didn't have reservation but popped into restaurant and got a table almost immediately. I had the seafood rissotto. Excellent! My husband had the rabbit ragu fuselli pasta. He loved it. The service was excellent. The atmosphere very nice.

You NEED to reserve a table. We tried one night to get a table as a walk in - No chance!! So booked for the following night. A marvellous evening was had. Quality food in a romantic setting. I had the seafood risotto with the steak for main and 'coffee time' for dessert. A wonderful meal and would highly recommend... More

If you're looking for an upscale, picturesque dinner in Florence, you'll find what you're looking for at Il Santo Bevitore. The good: The dining room is charmingly rustic. Not gaudy in any way. A great food and wine selection. Excellent service. You won't be disappointed.

Great food in lovely surroundings. The waiters pulling bottles of wine down from the high shelves with poles are a talking point, prices are reasonable and the wine choice is vast. Recommenaded.

Cool, fun place in the Santo Spirito area. Imaginative twists on traditional food. My pasta with 'Nudja sauce was spicy and cooked perfectly. Crispy octopus was amazing, tender with nice crunch on the outside. Service could have been more efficient.
