Neighborhood restaurant with good food. Many items come in half portions which are plenty for lunch. Quality was good, service was fine.

The food is ok; it is not the typical tourist rip-off place you so often encounter in Florence, and seems to serve genuine enough food, rather than being entirely adapted to tourist tastes; still, it is not the most amazing food either: correctly cooked, but unfortunately equally forgettable. The premises are located on the sunnier side of the piazza, and... More

I booked this restaurant early on in the holiday. It was well worth it. Although there appeared to be a number of free tables when we arrived and I wondered why I had bothered booking in advance, the outside dining area filled up very quickly. I watched as a few tourists spotted recently freed tables and simply sat down expecting... More

We visited Santo Spirito in July, 2015 and it was, by far, the best meal we had in Italy! My boyfriend and I shared the gnocchi, pasta with tomato sauce, sliced filet, and a salad. Everything with superb- with the best being the pasta with fresh tomatoes. It was absolutely phenomenal! If it wasn't our last night in Florence, we... More

I was told to come here by a friend and fell in love after my first visit. I have been living in Florence for 3 months and out of all the restaurants I've tried, Santo Spirito is my top choice. It can get crowded so I recommend making a reservation early especially if you want to sit outside. Every food... More

Recommended by the hotel, we went there for dinner on our first night in Florence, only to be met with a waitress who was extremely rude and nasty to us and another family. When I said that I did not need to eat in a place that treated people so badly, she said, "Fine you don't need to eat here."... More

Piazza Santo Spirito is a pleasant little oasis in tourist clogged Florence. Far enough away from the numerous tour groups and often bustling with a pretty market, it makes a perfect spot to pass a couple of hours. Osteria Santo Spirito is a great choice if dining here. Friendly staff, consistently good food and a pleasant atmosphere. It's tiny and... More

The gnocchi, oh the gnocchi. Don't ask questions, just get it. This place is easily the best value in Firenze (for dinner/sit down). Service is not the best, but the food quality makes up for it. Stick to the pasta! Other dishes are good, but the pastas are all at another level. Superb food for low prices.
