I ate at La Spada practically every night for a month with my study abroad class. Upon hearing that we would be eating at the same place every night, I thought I would get sick of the food. I am ecstatic to report that the food was amazing every single night! All the pastas (I think tried nearly all of... More

The food is great and my husband and I just walked in. The pasta and wine are standard delicious for Italy, but the meats are top notch. Very reasonably priced as well!

The food is great, the service is excelent. If you want to try an authentic Bistecca Fiorentina you should go there. I never miss it when in town.

Looking for a quick spot to eat. This was simple and in expensive. It was ok. Stick with meat, cheese and pasta. Wine was good and great price. All Italians. No reservations.

We found this on our own. We walked in and they sat us without reservations. The wonderful server Caroline could not be more charming and helpful with dinner recommendations. We had a child of 5 with us and she had wonderful suggestions that appealed to the child as well as to our group of 4 adults. The food was typical... More

I often find it very hard to be fair in tense reviews. This meal cost half what it cost last night. Last night was exquisite, tonight was a very decent meal. I think many people would rate what we had tonight as excellent, when you look at their 56 euros it cost. This restuarant is actually very large, and is... More

We were greeted by Laurenzo who was very welcoming and showed us to our table. He recommended a nice red and it was delicious, a beautiful Montepulciano d'Abruzzo and it was very reasonably priced. We shared a palma ham, salami and cheese platter. My Wife had the roast pork and I had the roast rabbit and we shared some grilled... 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.
