We ate well here from a traditional Italian menu with some unusual twists. Although we booked from the UK they could not find our booking but found us a table outside which was good - tables were very close to each other but this was not a problem for us.

Me and my husband went to Osteria Santo Spirito on a busy thursday night, so we had to wait a lot for pretty much everything (waiter, bread, wine, food, check...), but it was definitely worth it! For starters we had the smoked buffallo mozzarella wrapped in prosciutto crudo on rocket salad (yummy, very hot and very salty) and lardo di... More

We went to this restaurant a couple of times during our stay in Florence. The food is excellent. The service can be spotty, but just be aware that if you go during their really busy period (about 7 - 10 at night) unless you have a reservation, you will not be sitting outdoors. That said, there is generally room inside... More

You'll find this place over in the far corner of the piazzale of S.spirito church. We arrived early for lunch and got a table under canopy outside. The canopy was very necessary that day due to a downpour. Be wary of tables between the joining canopies on a rainy day. We'd been recommended to try this place by a friend... More

Schedule And reservation otherwise you will be very bad treated in the reception door. The food is really special and the location as well. However if you don't have reservation the Staff is very agressive in the door. I was insulted by a waitress on the door, so i will never be back there unfortunatelly, only because of this stupid...

As I sat outside on a balmy evening on lively Piazza S. Spirito, I ordered the mixed salad and rabbit cacciatora plus a glass of rosso wine from Montepulciano, Tuscany. The waiter brought me some delicious black olive tapenade that I spread on the dark, multi-grain bread--1st nice surprise. They offer half portions of some dishes like my rabbit so... More

We went twice while in Florence but it was that good. The gnocchi with soft gratin cheese & truffle oil is a little piece of heaven. This could be my last meal... Highly recommend. It is busy so make a reservation especially on weekend. We were lucky to get squeezed in twice. Don't miss this place.

My wife and I stayed a week in Florence, and our dinner at Osteria Santo Spirito was by far the best during our entire trip. After having wandered around Oltrarno for several hours, we happened to just stumble upon this restaurant. The place was packed, but after waiting a few minutes we got a table inside. Although I had hoped... More
