Passable Italian

So after a long fun-filled day, we were too exhausted to go anywhere or eat anything. Well, maybe I should disclose that I was the only one not hungry, because the hubs needed a snack/munchie. There’s not much around our hotel sans this place. A carryout margherita pizza and a soda were what we... read more

Food is OK but the staff are honestly a disaster...three girls waiting on tables with their daily chit chat taking of more importance...the chefs wandering about in the dirty whites on their mobile phones and being totally ignored in between courses..by the time you get dessert you wished you had brought along your pillow from the hotel next door.

Whilst the food was reasonable at a fair price the service was poor. It was impersonal. If you want quick food with no chit chat aka a fast food outlet then this place might suit.. But it wasn't for us :( Peter Appleton Hobart Australia

I was very tempted to eat at this restaurant, but it seemed very dirty. I never saw anyone at this place anyway.

stayed next door at the Grand Mediterraneo. Was too tired to go anywhere else so just ate next door. Free WiFi. Good Food. Good Prices. Good Service.

My wife and I were staying at the hotel next door. We had been touring the sights of Florence all day, and were ready for dinner. I don't like eating in hotels, but we didn't want walk anymore or take a cab. Someone at the hotel recommended the Outside, right next to the hotel. This is a modern, busy little... More

We stopped by on the way to our hotel, Ville Sullarno. Still on our bikes, we were going through the menu posted right outside the restaurant when one of the staff came out asking to move our bicycles out of the way. Ignoring her rude tone, we moved our bicycle to one side still trying to read the menu. This... More
