Fabuluous

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...

We were on an NCL organised East Florence trip and were recommended this restaurant by Trudi, our Tour Leader and it was a good recommendation. It was raining heavily, and we were soon settled in by a young Polish girl who spoke excellent English. We had bruschetta and soup and shard an excellent pizza. I finished with a very strong...

The unique character of this place lies in the atmosphere, in its people and in the quality of food. The idea is to have a mix of mediterranean food cultures and they achieve it. Plus there is a good variety of pastry and ice cream if you are fond of them. The people are very kind and professional; close to... More

We stopped on a cold day for lunch and found the outside dining area warmed by inviting heaters and an enclosure that allows you to see outside, feel the sunshine and be warm even on a cold winter day. We requested a suggestion on the wine, as I prefer red and my husband prefers white and the waitress provided us... More

This spot was great!! The best part of it all was that our kids ages 8 and 11 each got to make their own pizzas from scratch. They were in heaven and really proud about the finished product!

You get to choose the theme of the room that you dine in if you make reservations at this winner! (France, Italy, Spain) We made reservations since we hoped to dine well during the holidays. Located on the beautiful Piazza Santa Croce, this restaurant was quite large. The host was amazing at accommodating my need for gluten free options. They... More
