Found this restaurant as we wandered around Florence one evening looking for an early supper. Very welcoming, had a starter each + 2 mains + bottle of decent red + water + tip = 75 euro. complimentary lemoncello. Very good food.

We had our lunch here during our visit to duomo. We had fried eggs with truffle, it was amazingly good. We also had Vongole and stewed beef. Both of them were delicious! The waiters were very attentive as well. It's much better than the other restaurants we've been near tourist spots. Would be a good place for both lunch and... More

Florentine restaurant in Florence since 1980.Tuscan Chef.traditional cuisine (great Fiorentina steak) but even lots of seasonal recepies with fresh fish and meat. vegetarian and gluten free menù is also available.very interesting proposals in the wine card :local producers and even organic wines to experience for a real "touch" about our land.good atmosphere and courtesy add something special to the food.Ristorante familiare con staff. Cucina fiorentina e creativa.Nel menù si avvicendano gli ingredienti stagionali,privilegiando i prodotti a "km0" e le piccole produzioni artigianali. Ottima la carne (compresa la famosa "fiorentina" a cuore nel filetto come da tradizione),il pescato fresco giornaliero e le verdure sempre fresche. Tutto cucinato con le erbe aromatiche e l'olo extravergine toscano.Tanti i vini in carta con particolare attenzione a piccole realtà territoriali.l'accoglienza è cortese e cordiale .

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
