My friend, Simone Lazzarini, arranged for us to have dinner at this crowded local place, more pub than trattoria, in a small street in Florence. The street is so small that cars scrape the sidewalks. Take a Vespa. It is noisy and brimming with life..and great cuisine. Sorry, cucina. The boar was outstanding and the pasta was unforgettable. Go. You... More

I was really looking forward to visiting the restaurant. Although I saw mixed reviews, I decided to go ahead for a special meal ( which I pre-booked 2 months in advance). On arriving, the welcome was very cold and abrupt. We were rushed to the back of the restaurant and sat on a table with another couple. This was very... More

Big recommendations from all sources. The excellent service pushed the rating to a 5. The rooms were far too warm. But the waiter made up for all the missteps with apologies and great recommendations. I won't go back but you should try it: the steak.

It's a charming, rustic neighborhood place. Cozy tables, pretty settings, relaxing. We had fabulous food and service. They are happy to split dishes for you, and we highly recommend the rigatoni. The meats are incredible and perfectly cooked. We loved our server. He was spot on with recommendations and knew the wine list as well. A new favorite in Florence.

It is a very special dish but they have a lot of excellent dishes. It is always crowded but it is fun and the waiters speak english, It is certainly on the list of places to eat.

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

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.
