Charming Spot for Dinner

We really had a nice time at this restaurant. We got a reservation which is best. Our meals were good and the service was very nice, We did not feel we got pushed along, but had time to enjoy the setting. The decor is nice and warm, and the price was reasonable, not overly cheap or expensive. They... read more

Walk into this casual restaurant and you immediately feel the great vibe. Lots of chatter, good music, funky decor and cool staff! Once seated we were given a complimentary bread basket (if you finish it you get a top up) along with a big dish of delicious olive tapenade - a really nice change to the usual olive oil and...

We happened to stumble upon this restaurant when doing a walk through the Oltrarno section of Florence. My friends had just arrived from an overnight flight from Canada but we had a couple of hours to spend until we were meeting up with companions. A nice leisurely lunch sounded like the thing to do. We picked this largely outdoor osteria... More

The food is average. Good portions but not so tasty. Very loud and crowded. Expected more. The soups were very delirious but main courses not so. The staff is very friendly. Even in winter time there were tables outside for smoking.

We had Christmas eve dinner here. And we very much enjoyed it Casual. Great food. Make a reservation. Pasta, meats all done well. Service was touch and go, but that was part of the casual nature I guess. Definitely recommend.

This was recommended by our apartment owner and we stopped in for lunch prior to visit in pitti palace. Really enjoyed this place. Rustic, authentic food, mainly locals eating and reasonably priced. Service was friendly. Had the best gnocchi with cheese and truffle oil. The soups were also good. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

Typical Florentine restaurant with woodsy decor. FOOD ===== MINESTRA DI FARRO (basic minestrone soup) Get the half portion. Filling, warm, and tasty. It's like an Italian grandmother is in the kitchen making this.... More

We were there for dinner - I had the best gnocchi of my life. Perfect gratin, with cheese and truffled oil is just something I can not describe - you'll have to taste it! The pasta with nuts is also excellent. Prices are friendly and the portions are big - as the waitress well described: abundant (but they also have... More

I lived next door to this osteria 3 years ago and often went there over throughout the year, recommending it to all family and friends who visited. After moving back to Florence last year I was excited to go back. 3 out of the 5 times I went back they forgot to place our order. One of the times we... More

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
