I had homemade fresh pasta with fish and zuchini and I liked it a lot. Wine was also great. The service is good. The place was recommended by the person from hotel reception and I'm glad I went there, because from outside, I would probably never entered.

Very good food near Piazza San Marco. The reviews are right, it's much better than its location would suggest. We had delicious salads and pasta dishes but everything coming out of the kitchen looked good as well.

This is the kind of restaurant I would normally walk past and not take a second look at. It's located in Piazza San Marco where all the buses go to and from. From the outside, there is nothing more than a menu in the window and a curtain drawn across. It's very unassuming, which is deceiving because the food and... More

Our family of four stopped in for lunch on the way to the Accademia and we did not expect much because the location felt touristy. But once inside, the lovely ambiance and professional wait staff relaxed us and we settled in for what turned out to be a delicious, memorable lunch. The selection of wines bt the glass was good--I... More

We would highly recommend this restaurant. We found the Ristorante Accademia through our Hotel Giglio recommendation. The food including the salads, antipasti, primi and secondi are excellent.

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.
