Great pastries!

We ate here for breakfast two days in a row and weren't disappointed. They have a great pastry selection, multiple fresh juices and an assortment of coffee drinks. Sit outside on the patio and people watch and take advantage of the free WiFi.

We always enjoy a a nice lunch even when we have a busy day of touring. Our guide suggested Finisterrae which is located in Piazza Santa Croce. We sat outside with great view of Florence and one of the many Cathedrals. The food was fresh and well prepared. The service was quick and efficient, and we had a group of... More

We had an excellent meal. Antipasti; Melon with prosciutto I had beef kebab and my husband fish for dessert we had Tiramisu. Everything was delicious until that evening back at the apartment my husband had food poisoning. We would eat hear again because the restaurant has excellent reviews and the food was great. We will just not order seafood.

Went to this restaurant during a tour from Rome because the lunch was part of the tour and I thought it would have been much better. Bathrooms were filthy and the atmosphere in the restaurant was very impersonal. The food was good but not great, the menu that was chosen for us was a first course of spaghetti with marinara...

We eat here on a crowded, hot day in Florence and the suggestion of our guide. Our cruise tour was ending in Santa Croche and we thought this would be a good place to wind down our day. We did not eat until 2:30 due to our long limes at Uffizzi. However this location had two very good advantages, first... More

It started to pour while we were walking around the Piazza Santa Croce and we ran into the tented area of Finisterrae. We are so happy we did. The pizza was amazing and the best we had in Italy. We opted for the Magrarita pizza...cheese, red sauce and basil and it was delicious. Service, as usual in Europe, was on... More

Let's hope they were just having an off day. We came for an early evening meal, and my wife and I both chose lasagne. Goodness knows when they cooked it, certainly some time before we arrived at the restaurant. We both received small, dry portions, delivered to us by surly staff who seemed to be put out that we wanted... More

We found this place in the city of Florence. We were seated in a large forest-like room with small waterfalls and many plants. We ordered two pizzas (no-cheese; vegetable) and two pasta dishes (seafood; red sauce). Also a gelateria in front of building. The food and location were great, and we will very likely return here next time in Florence.

Had a great meal here with tour group. The service was very good making sure everyone had enough to eat and drink. Would have like to try a gorgeous looking cake but had gelato for dessert with our meal. Food was very fresh and full of flavour. Wine was excellent and free flowing.
