Both my parents come from Tuscany and my mother is a wonderful cook. Guess what? In this restaurant I tried some of my mom's 'masterpieces' and they were EXCELLENT!! It's usually quite hard to eat good Tuscan food in Florence city centre, however in this place everything looked simply delicious - given the huge portions and the veeeery long menu... More

Finding a no touristic place to eat in Florence is truly hard. The Florentines are hospitable but can also rip you off when it comes to offering quality food. I lived in the city for just over 2 moths and Piazza Santo Spirito was one of my fav places, if not the favourite place to have a drink, aperitivo (Pop,... More

I celebrated my birthday supper there. Had an excellent meal. The place was hopping! It was just across the piazza from our hotel so we could easily walk there and back.

We stopped in the square this restaurant is located in on the advice of a local we had met. We decided to stop here and were pleasantly surprised. The service left a little bit to be desired but was better than most service we received in Italy. It seemed like it was primarily frequented by tourists but was still a... More

This is a small, local place.  you can see into the kitchen to watch the hardworking cook.    Our meal was excellent -- salad, a vegetable quiche like item and a geletin dessert.  Service is friendly. Tables are set close together so don't be alarmed if you are bumped in to as people walk by.

Went for lunch. Customers were 100% tourists, staff is ok, not super friendly nor super efficient, looks like they know the flow of tourist is not going to stop, whatever the service provided. The food: a lot! Large plates filled with pasta. I went for some gnocchi al ragú, it was really average, gnocchi were not well cooked, and sauce... More

It's well located, and seems to be cosy but the reality is completely different: the staff is distant and not kind at all, the food quality tends to a very poor mediocrity, i.e. the spaghetti alle vongole are a sad and tasteless combination of pasta and small/empty clams. And the worst by far, the time to be served, and even... More

We had a lovely evening at Osteria Santo Spirito. The food was great, the wine was great, and our waiter was attentive and nice. Very big portions, so if you're not a big eater, half portions will definitely be enough. If I'm ever in Florence again, I'll definitely visit this place again :)

The waitresses were all very fast and friendly. The food was delicious and came to me really hot. Everything I saw around me that other people had gotten also looked delicious. Very large portions!
