Fantastic food, fun place, lots of hip and trendy Italians. Book a table, especially if you want to sit outside (summer). Very friendly staff. Nice wines, recomended by waitress perfect matched with the food. A bit off the beaten track, so hardly any tourists -...More

Thought we had found a quiet place away from the cities’ buzz (based on the description In the LP) but turned out to be a disappointment. The staff was unfriendly, and the food was only average.

We wanted to meet for lunch with our Italian friend in that place which she said is really good. So we went there a bit earlier to have a drink before our friend was about to join. Basicly my wife and my son where sitting...More

A nice, hip spot with good music, relaxed atmosphere and incredibly tasty cheesecake (crispy foundation and very cheesy yet soft and light top, no unnecessary additions). Great coffee too!

Like others we found this oasis by accident and had to book for the following night. The menu is limited, primarily pasta, and in Italian, but ?'s help, the atmospheric garden setting and outstanding quality made it memorable. Her wine choice was also great.

A nice location, with good tastes and polite staff. In my opinion the menu could be a little richer, but as an alternative choice I would totally recommend it.

Stumbled across Santa Rosa by accident after a long hot walk, so we were relieved when they found us a table outside for a late lunch. We had a couple of salads which had delicious ingredients (including fresh almonds) though I had been tempted by...More

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great
company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo
Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the
staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and
they cannot help but stare at the architectural
masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria
