Aperitivo on the Piazza

Osteria Santo Spirito has a great outdoor dining room right on the piazza at the Santo Spirito church. If you have been in that piazza you know that it is a wonderful place to people watch and, if you are ensconced in your very hard to get seat, a great place to eat.

This restaurant was a very good find in a lovely piazza on the south of the river. Everything is a little quieter on that side and the restaurant is very peaceful. We had the Gnocchi al Ragu which is the first meat based Gnocchi dish I have every tried. It was delicious but the portion was absolutely gigantic we probably... More

The house wine was delicious as were both of the dishes my husband and I ordered. I had gnocchi that had an amazing crisped cheese crust on top. And my husband's meal was served in walnut cream sauce. Yum! We ate inside, but they had outdoor dining on the square too.

Excellent food. Lovely atmosphere. Authentic Italian food. The simple spaghetti with cherry tomatoes was amazing!!! The gnocchi with truffle oil is wonderful. Would highly recommend this gem. Just make sure you have reservations it small and gets crowded.

What a wonderful recommendation from our hotel. Tucked away in a lovely quaint square. The best meal I had in Florence. Mostly locals but a few tourist enjoying deliciousness as well. I followed other peoples recommendation on the truffle gnocchi and I was so glad I did! It was perfection and melted in your mouth. It was rich but it's... More

Another neighborhood place my daughter and her friends like to go to. It's a loud, friendly place that accommodates large parties upstairs. Very good and inexpensive house wine. I have been to Piazza Santo Spirito in the summer and its a great place to hang out with locals who are strolling and walking their dogs. The food was very good... More

The truffle gnocchi were divine and the deceptively simple cherry tomato spaghetti (chittarra) were also delicious. I recommend the tiramisu with an authentically strong espresso. Service was excellent.

We loved this restaurant! It's in the far corner of the Piazza del Santo Spirito, a small restaurant with wonderful outdoor seating on the Piazza. The bruschetta was one of the best we've ever eaten, with the tomatoes incredibly tasty. The pasta was cooked perfectly, I loved my chicken with vegetables, and the meat balls were outstanding. The service was... More

Very busy restaurant in the corner of Piazza Santo Spirito. Excellent pastas - unless you are starving or sharing, get the smaller portion. Enjoyed risotto with parses and a very fresh arugula salad. Probably best to make a reservation although our party of 2 was able to get a table at lunch time - inside on a beautiful day when... More
