Good Panini - Sit In Bar & Save

We sat under the canopy in Santa Croche square but did not see the 5 Euro panini. When we asked our server, she said that was available at the bar inside. We went in, ordered 2 croissant sandwiches with salami & fontina cheese. We each had a biera Peroni to wash it all down. There is a little bar... read more

A local recommended this place and we loved it! Sat outside both evenings. Great choice of food - superb pizzas and pasta dishes. Finished off with a delicious cake chosen from an amazing display. Very friendly staff. Always busy. Although we didn't eat inside, the rooms are interesting and the toilets spotless!

We were staying at a hotel just around the corner and walked here on our first evening. The food was excellent and the view out on to Santa Croce is stunning. Would recommend the Pea Soup and Pate as well as the Vulcana pizza but make sure you are hungry as the portions are generous and very filling. Two courses... More

My first pizza in Italy.......I ordered the Don Carlos pizzas, I'm speechless. Delicious! I also had cannoli for desert, the best! I noticed they had a TripAdvisor decal walking in.

Found this place by chance and after weeks of being disappointed with the quality and flavor of Italian food this place is an absolute gem. I had fillet steak, my wife had a seafood dish and the other two shared a pizza, all absolutely magnificent.

It might look to some people like a typical tourist restaurant, because it is always full. BUT there is a reason why many tourguides are recommending it. It is directly in front of santa croce church on the santa croce square. If you have the chance to sit outside you can look at the people walking by. The food is... More

This was our last night in Florence and we were looking for a place close to where we were staying to have dinner. The restaurant has a great view to Santa Croce and the service is very attentive. I found the menu to be very limited although with a range of things not very common to find in Fiorentine restaurants.... More

This restaurant is right next to the Sante Croce, so great position. Being honest, if you just want feeding after walking all day it's fine, but a not place for a nice meal or fine dining..., as i say, the food is ok and staff are friendly but there are a lot better places in Florence...
