OK Dinner

Tre Merli is located just north of the Arno River and a few blocks west of the historic center of Florence, Italy. I dined here with my wife and daughter on a Friday evening in mid-March and thought the experience was just OK. I ordered the lasagna and it tasted OK but I was thinking it was not... read more

Of all the restaurants and cafes I visited on a recent trip to Florence this was by far the worst. My husband and I decided to visit this cafe for coffee and a bite after a day of roaming the city. While we ordinarily be very wary of tourist traps and do proper research before visiting any restaurant this place... More

We tought it was good looking outside and with a good menu. But incredible bad mood of waiters. Impossible to have the dessert. At the end it was quite expensive for this quality. Run away!

This restaurant was over-priced; the pizza was slightly burnt; the waiters were lackadaisical at best.

We went to dinner with the family. Had some bruschetta for antipasto and pasta for mains. All the dishes were wonderful and cooked al dente. The bruschetta was great and full of flavour. The wine was lovely and can come in half bottles if not everyone wants wine. Prices were reasonable and service was great and timely. The place was... More

My wife and I ate here our 2nd night in Firenze as they had some of the nicest looking porcini mushrooms that I had seen in a long time. The porcini salad was excellent, with a lot of porcini. The pasta was solid. The steak with grilled porcini was over-cooked despite a plea for rare. The couple at the table... More

My husband and I came across this restaurant last Thursday - our first night in Florence. The menu was typically Italian with a separate pizza menu. We both chose a mozzarella dish as a starter. Proper buffalo mozzarella used in both and very good portions at eur7. For mains I had the grilled beef on rocket which was superb -... More

We ate here on our first night as it was close to our hotel and we were looking for something quick and tasty. We were not disappointed! Service was quick, the staff humoured my attempts at Italian, and the food was great. I had pizza with prosciutto and it was gorgeous!

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
