We heard rave reviews and the Internet was filled with them too, we were excited to go. We both got veal, the wife- veal steak. Me - veal cacattori, both of them very tough - her knife would barely cut through it. Asked for the recommended white wine, waiter confirmed, but we still got red. Cheese cake was like shortcake.

The Italian - English menu didn't correlate .. and when we did get what we ordered it came randomly ... the portions were small, and not very tasty. It seems that they specialise in local food and drink which is a good idea... but they should work harder at presenting and preparing ...

We've now been here several times. Each time we've ordered something different and each time, the food has been wonderful. The pear/pecorino salad was delicious as a starter. We took the waiter's recommendation on their fresh pasta dishes on one visit and their rigatoni with basil and mozzarella was the best past dish I've had! The spicy spaghetti carbonara was... More

The desk clerk at the Hotel Alba Palace recommended this Tattoria to us as a good place for dinner. Remember in Italy, dinner starts at 7:30 pm, no earlier. With good directions, it was only a short walk from the hotel. It is a beautiful place with friendly wait staff to greet and serve you. Our waiter was especially helpful... More

Very classic italian style restaurant and vibe. Friendly staff and very nice food for a very fair price! Ordered the rigatoni and the chocolate cake for dessert...both are THE BEST! However, it is always packed and the service isn't the best...in a way it's hard to get the waiter's attention but still very worth going and definitely make a reservation... More

This place is a must go in Florence, you just can't miss it. But you have to be aware that is very crowded with all that this believes, waiters not always nice, people standing next to your table, i was given as a meat dish only bones and interiors imagine that they run out of baby chair when we went!...

Florentine steak was so fantastic! You should try it. The salad with fresh artichokes and cheese also was very tasty. Of course, in wine card everybody can find something interesting. The service was good, the waiters are friendly. So we had a perfect diner in Florence. Thanks to "13 Gobbi"!

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.
