I am very picky about handing out 5 stars to anywhere, however I would give 10 to this fabulous place. The steak in wine sauce literally melted in my mouth and I have never had a wine sauce cooked to perfection like the one I...More

This is a great restaurant to experience famous Italian steak. The menu says “for two” but also completely fine for a group of four adults as they just give you a bigger cut. High quality meat, I’d probably go for ‘medium’ next time to get...More

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
