A memorable meal after seeing too many tourist filled restaurants. Great service, pizza, salad and pasta reasonably priced. Filled with local regular customers (the staff seemed to know most of them) who all seemed to have a wonderful time. It's not quiet, it's not elegant, it's just great.

Thoroughly enjoyed the food in "Semolina". We asked our hotel reception for directions and he looked it up online. He said he didn't recommend it as the reviews were not good. I had checked before coming to Florence, and the reiews looked good! We jumped in a taxi and went anyway. It was only 10 minutes in taxi from our... More

I loved this place so much when I was in Florence, that I returned a second time. The pasta with the meat sauce was really good. I accidentally ordered the large wine, thinking it may be a double serving. It was actually a liter of wine, which was ok too.

My friend is from Florence and she recommended this restaurant on my trip. The atmosphere was casual, It was one of the best meals I've ever had!!! Prices are reasonable, house wine is about 11 euro for a carafe It's not a tourist trap and the service was excellent.

Semolina has a great outside view of a beautiful piazza and the food is definitely worth tasting. There is a very nice upstairs that you might want to check out too.

Have been to Firenze twice and here both times, but tonight we sat outside. Most of our party had charcoal stains on them from the kitchen extraction fans. Also a band was playing in the piazza, so conversation was very difficult. On the upside, the food was great. They were even great about food intolerances. My meal wad great, with... More
