If you have "Bistecca Florentine" on your list you can not go wrong coming here. Within walking distance of the Ponte Vecchio you do need reservations. Steak is the highlight but for those of us who prefer something else everything on the menu is delicious.

Worst food and service in Florence. I lived in Florence for 4 months and have now visited it on vacation and would absolutely recommend to NOT go to this place. This was a terrible experience. The food was okay, no where near the level of all other restaurants that we visited. The service was terrible. After a long day of... More

You need to make a reservation if you want to have lunch or dinner here as it is always very crowded. The food is amazing and the place is really authentic. The deserts are also really good (try the cheese cake and the chocolate cake). The service is just regular. It takes a long time between courses and the waiters... More

The best part about this restaurant is the intimate atmosphere. The lighting and decor really add to the experience. They decorate the restaurant with local Italian produce (fruit, packs of pasta, ham hung from the ceiling). It would be a good place to have a date too. Big oak beams across the ceiling add a lot of presence. The staff... More

We were recommend to this place by our hotel. Florentine Steak was great, rigatoni with tomato sauce delicious. Ordered the cheesecake and it was one of the most delicious things I've had in Italy. Service was good. We made reservations but I think on a Wednesday for early 730 dinner we would have been okay without.

Really good florentine steak. Big starters. Great decor and atmosphere. Had to wait a while to be seated even though we booked. But it was worth it. The rigatoni starter was fantastic.

Several times that I've been there now and I do generally find the atmosphere peaceful with many locals alongside and busy camerieri running around. Food there is of course very nice including there famous 1kg fiorentina. My favourite must be their homemade cheese case

We ate here on a Monday night when few restaurants were open - every table filled by 19:40 (open at 19:30). Food adequate - service slow but consider the tables all filling at once. Ate at several better restaurants during our 4 nights in Florence.

This place gets busy so book ahead online. Relaxed and cosy atmosphere, good service and great food. The Florentine steak for 2 was over €55 Euro but you share it and it is big! Get the side of sautéed spinach to match and Potato Rosti....so good. The house red was totally drinkable, very nice, and the Creme caramel for dessert... 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.
