Finisterrae Restaurant was delightful. We had an evening meal inside, although there is outdoor dining. The restaurant could not accomodate the size of our group for outdoor dining. The restaurant itself has old world charm and ambiance. The food was wonderful - especially the sea bass. The menu was comprehensive and something for everyone's appetite. Staff was polite and helpful... More

Terrific people watching and good pizza at this deceivingly large restaurant in the heart of Piazza Santa Croce. The place has a large out door seating area right on the piazza, a large dining room inside and a good sized patio in the back of the restaurant......beware that if you sit on the back patio, you are unable to access...

I ate here twice as it was close to my accommodation, resonable and had nice tables on Santa Croce for people watching. The first night I had sausage calzone which was excellent and the second I had chicken with bacon and yoghurt with rosemary potatoes which was tasty if a little underdone in one spot. The menu was pretty comprehensive... More

We went here for lunch on a warm summer day, dinning outside under the canopy. My wife had the cheese plate and I had the salad with the flank steak. Both were delicious. The cheese came with slices of pear and a small cup of honey and it all paired well. The steak on the sale was cooked as requested... More

I have a very pleasant seafood meal (cod in a tomato sauce, in the manner of Livorno) my last evening in Florence. I found the waiter friendly and attentive. The wine selection was good and I had a lovely, crisp white. This is an excellent choice to relax after a long day of walking or museums and watch the scene... More

Having been recommended to use this restaurant by our excursion guide during our Princess cruise- we gave this a try 1. Counter staff indifferent 2. Cashier in another world 3. All waiters patronising and very, very rude. 4. Food delicious In the end I asked a guy on the counter why everything was so much trouble. He looked surprised and... More

We stayed 5 nights in Florence in Santa Croce near Finisterre and were blessed to have found this gem on our first night in Italy. Our server, Annetta, made us feel right at home. She was busy but always checked on us and was quite helpful with her wonderful menu recommendations. We had a great dinner on our first night... More

We were hungry and overheated in crowded Piazza Santa Croce, looking for lunch after our walking tour (and about a dozen other walking tours) ended. We took a chance on Finisterrae and were richly rewarded. Despite the lunch time throngs of tourists like ourselves, we did not have too long a wait to get a table outside. The outdoor dining...
