The savoy has by far the best bread selection of any place we have eaten in Florence so far. The olive oil and balsamic that accompanies it is also very good. For our lunch we had linguini vongole and lasagna. The linguini was cooked to perfection with a little bite, the clams were succulent and tasty and for the first time in my life I mopped up the sauce at the end with some of the bread. My wife's lasagna was very tasty with a beef ragout as a side, lots of flavour and several layers of pasta.
The service from the staff was excellent and from your table you can watch the world go by in the piazza repulica. A very nice way to spend an afternoon.
Overall was it the most complex cooking ever......no......but it was well cooked simple Italian food and we really enjoyed it.
