“Off beaten track”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

Just a short distance (Bus 36 or 37) from city centre, past Porta Romana (ancient city wall gate) you will find another kind of Italian eatery. Gigolo Nero also known as Le Lys Noir (Black Lily) is a cool Cafe/bar/restaurant with free wi-fi superfast! Fantastic service, menu changes every day, no tourists in sight (yay!) and cheaper than trattorias in town centre. 4 first courses (different pasta) & 4-5 second courses (eg. Roast beef Florentine style) slendid coffee & wonderful Tiramisu. Decor is contemporary & slick BUT this too is VERY Italian & part of experiencing the TRUE culture of Florence. Try it. A taxi from Florence P.O. @ Piazza Repubblica costs just 10 Euro but the bus is fine as well. You can also Walk back to town (mostly downhill) if you have time (20 mins.)
