This is a nice little restaurant just 5 mins away from the Santa Maria Novella (SMN) train station. We were hungry and chanced upon the place late in the night. One of the best lasagnes I've ever had! We also had an aubergine+cheese dish (don't remember the Italian name) which was equally yum. Add a couple glasses of wine and... More

Lovely to have a snack, glass of wine, coffee and watch the world go by.. Next to our hotel so ideal for that pre-dinner drink. The staff are so friendly.

Anyone in Florence who wants great genuine friendly faces need to stop here. I stopped by to ask if there was a restroom (toilette) and they just handed me a key without any questions or forcing me to buy something. I ended up eating here because the food looked amazing and at such an affordable price for a touristy city.

Just happened on this small cafe as our hotel was at the end of the street. Ham and cheese toasted sandwich, cappuccino and orange juice for 3.8 Euro each. Hit the spot perfectly and cheap at the price.

We first tried a coffee break here 5 years ago , we found it just as attractive this time. We had a coffee and a fresh fruit tart when we arrived from Rome and returned for lunch. A good selection of freshly made food hit the spot , we were happy !

We ended up going to this place three times on our recent visit to Florence. The lady behind the bar was very friendly and we had amazing pasta with mussels for lunch one day. The prices are in keeping with the area and the quality of food they serve, we really enjoyed the atmosphere and how easy going and relaxing... More
