Superb Food, Ditzy Waitress

The food here is absolutely amazing and we were so delighted to find it on a recent short visit to Florence.The portions are huge so even the half portions are almost too much for one person. We shared the meat platter for starter and it was sublime. I had fish for my main course and ordered the... read more

Just returned from having a late night meal with my girlfriend. She ordered the risotto which was very sloppy and mushrooms were raw which obviously the chef had just tossed them in without cooking. It was devoid of any flavour. For 15 euros you'd expect better than this. I ordered the Gnocchi which also was lacking flavour and was smothered... More

The night before we ate at Casalinga, just off the square, and we had the best pasta of our lives. After that, this was a bit of a letdown. Everything was very good, and the location is interesting. The food is high quality and the service is helpful and knowledgable.

My wife and I were told this place had the best Gnocci and beef ever. Very big expectations to meet. The restaruant is located on the far side of the Santo Spirto piazza away from all the crowds. We had low expections sitting down inside, very small and crammed with tabled but were we WRONG.... What can I say, after... More

Osteria Santo Spirito was great! We only stopped for Gnochi and beer but glad we made the trip. If it was not so far from our apartment I would have gone back for dinner. This place was referred to us by friends who had been several times . I definitely would go back . English speaking staff was very helpful... More

Came here after seeing the Human exhibition at Fort Belvedere, looking for some simple, hearty food. I had a salad to start (of which there was a great range), but after seeing some of the other diner's portions, decided to go for a 'reduced' portion! Still, the blue cheese, walnuts and celery all went really well together. For the main... More

This Osteria is in the other part of the river Arno, in Piazza Santo Spirito of Florence. The location is just incredible! It's in a busy square with several outdoor restaurants that is just so full of life. Perfect for sitting outside and enjoying the atmosphere. The food is great too considering this area is so busy, it is quite... More

The seats outside in the evening are usually reserved so we sat inside but I wouldn't let that put you off. The portions here are massive and all cooked beautifully for an amazing price. I had the gnocchi baked in cheese and it was beautiful. It came to me still sizzling it was that hot and the cheesy sauce it... More
