I've now been here three times and each experience has been great. The pastas are simple but delicious and the steak is seasoned and cooked to perfection.

I cannot recommend this place enough. Down a little back street, it has a warm and cosy feel to it. There is space to eat both inside and outside, depending on your preference. The staff were everything you could ask for: polite, funny, attentive and not overbearing. However, all of the that is really irrelevant because it is the food... More

We ate some great meals in Florence, this just was not one of them. The food was good but not great and the service was the worst we had anywhere.

An Italian steak house, with all the noise and people watching and staff hustle one could want. Starlets, mafiosi-wanna-bes, bar lizards, business folks, folks wanting to be seen and some not so. A Master Sgt of head waiter barking orders to his harried staff, and teaching we novices how to eat antipasti. A fun, raucous place where quantity of food... More

To say we were underwhelmed by the food & service is an understatement. For all the arrogance & attitude exhibited by our Server, one might have expected something really extraordinary. The food, at best, was average... the pasta, tasteless albeit al dente (to someone's iron teeth), the sauce, tomato & uninspired. A chicken dish was dry & presented unappealingly, a... More

In a country where fresh pasta is exceptional in most restaurants, we found this restaurant where we ordered fresh pasta with tartuffo and were really disappointed about the experience. Not only the pasta was nothing special (it could have been the pasta I cook at home) but the tartuffa had no taste... how this happened? When we entered the restaurant... More

Vongole and eggplant parmigiana are winners! If you have the chance, try sostanza restaurant on the same street!

Recommended by friends and it did not disappoint! It is a low lit, casual, authentic Florentine restaurant. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. Highly recommend the Gorgonzola and Zucchini salad, followed by the Veal Ossobucco. Lived ten years in NYC and have not had better.

the rigatoni is one of my favorite dishes and I have been at that restaurant several times. The second we sat down they took our order, brought our appetizer with the first course immediately after ordering, and took our plates away the second we had our last bite. Have never felt more rushed during a meal in Florence. They even... 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.
