A perfect solution out of the touristic traps in the heart of Florence. A good pasta and excellent roasted and bbq meat. Prices are absolutely fair. I recommend the restaurant rosticceria open in via del moro (great lasagne!)

This restaurant came highly recommended to me, so the wife and I set out to try their take on the local steak. The place is deceptively large, and larger groups trend to get relegated to the back of house... The decor is slightly less rustic but the service doesn't suffer: caring and accommodating. Bistecca was brilliant, and the wine list... More

Went here during a week stay in Florence with my family for my 21st birthday. We hadn't reserved a table and so I thought it was very good that they managed to seat us. However, they lead us though the restaurant to the other end which looked like a mediocre cafe. We ordered food, 3 pasta dishes and a steak,... More

The concierge at our hotel recommended La Spada for our family of 9. We had delicious tomato bruchetta followed by Florentine Steak. Our waiter, Ivan was fantastic and the meal and evening were perfect. We enjoyed it so much we went back the next night and had another wonderful meal.

We were a party of six. Five had the steak. I had the Carbonara. And it was out of this world! I love making this dish at home, but this was heaven. Oh, the steaks? They enjoyed them very much, but the Carbonara won the day!

After a couple of days in Italy, one gets the feeling that food is great but is more or less the same in all the restaurants around city highlights. La Spada is different. It does offer all the italian pasta you may want, but it also offers different courses like grilled meat, chicken and fish, and so on.. I certain... More

I absolutely loved La Spada. I was in Florence for a month with a class and this is where we ate all of our group meals. Everything we were feed was absolutely delicious. I must say their pasta al pesto was my favorite. The wait staff was amazing and made our meals delightful. After getting to know most of the... More

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighborhood Profile
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 area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
