My wife and I were visiting Firenze and staying at the AC Hotel Firenze around the corner and found Niwa to be a pleasant surprise!
We only ordered the Miso Soup and Chicken and Cashew Nuts entrée and were very satisfied and surprised at the quality.
I'm typically skeptical of Asian restaurants that serve food from multiple nationalities (i.e. Japanese and Thai, as in this case), but what we tried was excellent and the service and ambiance are great too.
We only saw locals eating here and it's a great break from Italian food if you're traveling the country from abroad.
Highly recommend if it's convenient for you to stop by.
