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

We won't forget our 6th wedding anniversary meal here- for all the wrong reasons! This restaurant was recommended by our hotel, Garibaldi Blu, which is great. It's our wedding anniversary and we are so lucky to be spending it in Florence. We wanted a lovely evening, food and wine. We got none of those things. We booked, but were barely... More

Loved this place. A real nugget and the staff was very courteous. We got a chance to talk to the chef who showed us how he did the Florentine steak. We went back 4 times over our 2 week stay in Florence. Everything we had was outstanding and the carbonara is not to be missed.

This restaurant is out of this world! The Florentine steak is a must try for meat lovers. So delicious. Service was top notch as well. Must try when in Florence.

One of my favorite in Florence. A must is his rigatoni with cheese, it is noted on the menu in red with an asterisk. Have it as an appetizer or a main dish. As an appetizer it is enough to share for two people. It is wonderful and rich with the pasta done al dente. Next have the steak Florentine... More

Whenever I am in Florence, I make a stop at Trattoria dei 13 Gobbi. It's recommended to make a reservation, but if you do show up without one, they usually can accommodate you with little wait time. Is all worth it. From their pasta to their steaks, all of it delicious. I think they have a wonderful wine selection (although... More

They told us that they had a table to serve us. So we waited. They kept on telling us to wait there is a table, but after one hour and even more they still hadnt given us any table. Obviously they were lacking respect on us.

We visited the restaurant twice during our ten days here....here's what we liked and didn't: 1st: The location was within minutes of the Ponte Vecchio...our reference point for everything. It was a pleasant 5 minute walk from our apt near the bridge. 2nd: It's nestled away on a little side street not on a big "main drag". 3rd: Make a... More

This place has been hands down the best 3 course meal (too stuffed for 4) of our honeymoon. It came recommended and absolutely didn't disappoint. Order the items on the menu that are red and don't even think about missing the florentine steak.

We loved our food (florentine steak, pasta entrée, cheese platter, salad), but you need to book in advance for a table and expect at least 1hour for the food to be prepared. Great dinner, though. Nice environment with shared big tables.

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.
