Amazing food. We shared a number of anti pasta starters. Eggplant parm was GREAT, Burata mozzarella was another favorite. Pasta try the carbonara. Anything is good. The service was top notch.

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
