Incredible food. Friendly service. Nice options. Good deserts. Good wine. Could eat there everyday. I think one can't get anything more authentic than this in the center of Florence. Mouth watering.

This small restaurant which is located near the Piazza Signoria is run by four sisters. The menu changes daily - although they do have some standard options. The food is fresh, delicious and of a very high quality. This time we had pasta with anchovies,...More

I just wanted to try homecooked food and it was good! I had a plateful of risotto and tiramisu for dessert! A bit uncomfortable eating at the entrance on high chairs but food is good!

The gnochetta was to die for. Melt in your mouth. The service was fine. Other people were ordering the steak and it looked very good

We really enjoyed this small osteria on our visit to firenze. It is quiet small and vibrant place, obviously always full since all the locals go there to get their lunch. The place is run by 4 really nice ladies who make you feel like...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
