We chose this hotel as an overnight stay after exploring Florence. The hotel is in the countryside well away from the highway, so it took a while to get there.
There was some sort of banquet going on the first floor where the restaurant was but it was still open to the public. We were not too keen to dine in the hotel's restaurant as we saw bad reviews so we checked a couple of other places but they were all closed Sunday night. We had to go back to the hotel and dine there. The food at the restaurant was bland, my pasta with duck was tasteless. My wife wasn't impressed with her dish either. The service was slow and inefficient. At the end they tried to charge us for a desert we did not order. The worst part about the restaurant is that I got mild food poisoning there.
But this is not the worst part of the story. At night, we were bitten by bed bugs. Next day half of my wife's body was covered in swells so the room must have been infested with them. My advice is obviously to skip this hotel, but if you visit check your room carefully to make sure there are no bed bugs and look after your luggage so that you don't transfer them back home. Because if you do, you will regret it big time.
