The service was top-notched and the staff was able to communicate well in English, probably one of the most friendliest restaurant in Florence which welcome tourists. The T-bone steak was excellent, the same goes to the Ravoli!

We really enjoyed this family-run restaurant that offers true Tuscana cuisine in Florence. We ordered a red-wine beef shank and seafood spaghetti. Both were very delicious. They were listed in the specials menu on the back of the cover page. Service was good. Price was reasonable. This restaurant has many local customers and is recommended by our hotel.

Saw good reviews on trip advisor but I have found it quite hit and miss sometimes. The photos of steak looks nice... So I had a steak and it's a bit chewy/dry. My wife's beef stew is also average. The good thing was that we sat next to the live performer. This place seems to be overrated.

Food is superb. The only petty complaint is the olive oil and balsamic weren't very good . Friendly and nice atmosphere.

We are impressed with the service by Danielle. She's a star of the restaurant. No doubt the food is good also. We ordered the antipasti - mussels & clams soup and the famous Italian ham & cheese platter. The mussels and clams soup was really tasty and fresh. It was flavorful. For main, my husband had the seafood Vongole pasta... More

The food, the service, the casual atmosphere, and the price can not be beat! We will be back! We were just walking down the street and stumbled upon the unassuming Trattoria and were so happy we did. It is closed on Wednesdays but try it every other day!

This restaurant was recommended to us by our local guide and we couldn't have been happier with his choice. A wonderfully diverse menu, great atmosphere, and pleasant staff. We came early and found the place to fill up quickly both with tourists and locals. Prices were reasonable for the size and quality of the food. We certainly suggest a lovely... More

My tour guide recommended this place and I liked so much, I came twice in my week long vacation. This place is so good, even the locals frequent it. Great food, ambience and service. The owner actually remembered my name and was nice enough to recommend things to see and do in town. The pasta is amazing! Don't leave without... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence, surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking students provides the tranquil surroundings for the elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read the daily newspaper. Home to several universities, including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A bridge connecting the modern cultural activity of Florence to its classic art, represented by the everlasting magnificence of the original David, resonates as a symbol of Florence and of Italy as a whole. Get lost in a Neoclassic world, a journey back in time through historic buildings like Spedale degli Innocenti (Hospital of the Innocents), San Marco church, Basilica della Santissima Annunziata, and natural jewels like the Botanical Gardens.
