The staff here went out of their way to make my parents (celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary) feel like the center of the universe!!! Very flexible, very kind. Read the menu to us multiple times, always filled our glasses with great wine, took pictures of the whole family for us, and generally went way above and beyond.

This place was recommended to us by a local for good wine - it does not disappoint! The wine is as good as we've found in Italy - they don't serve supermarket wines! The prices are very reasonable....from €8 for a very drinkable half bottle of red, or €12 for the full bottle. Making a selection is the most trouble... More

Enjoyed a wonderful evening of wine tasting and appetizers in this cozy wine cellar. The owner introduces himself and shares his knowledge of how to taste and rate wines. Excellent food and atmosphere. Don't miss this stop on your tour.

Visited la Canova di Gustavino on a wine tasting tour with my mother. Cosimo the owner was excellent and is very friendly and personable. He gave us a great wine tasting experience. The food, service, and wine here are superior. This was one of the best restaurants we dined at while visiting Florence. Add this restaurant on your places to... More

While wandering the streets in search of a pre-7PM dinner, finding everything else closed, we stumbled into the wine bar thinking we'd kill some time before going somewhere else for dinner. This is the sister location of the fancier next door Gustavino operation (which would no doubt have been more expensive). To our surprise, we were treated to a wine... More

The decoration with wine bottle is cool. (Even if we don t drink wine :-) ) We tasted the trippe and the tomato soup (pappa). I liked the first one and we found the second not very liquid but good too

We were walking one night and passed a couple sitting in the window seat, fronting a stack of wine bottles. We laughed at this sight and the couple posed for a photo! We went in and chatted with them and their servers. Their meal had been superlative so we booked the seat for the next day. They did not disappoint!... More

Well, we all know that Firenze offers probably the best restaurant in Italy. La Canova di Gustavino is up to that standard. The menu is simple but yet very creative. I never knew I could have pasta with a mix of parmesan and dark chocolate! The wine list is impressive and the staff will do every effort for you to... More

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
