My wife & I decided to eat in this restaurant following it being recommended by 'The Guardian'. We were not disappointed. For €13 each, we each had a wonderful plate of gnocchi followed by some tasty strips of beef together with beans & a small...More

Found on the Guardian article for budget restaurants. Very poor pasta; I didn't even want to finish it. Mixed salad was also very plain. Don't know why people recommend this place. I would suggest everyone NOT to eat here.

This was our last evening after traveling for 3 weeks in Tuscany and we wanted something special. We were delighted, not only by our waiter but also the food. The food and wine was excellent. Definitely recommended!!!

We found this restaurant on a list of the "best" affordable restaurants in Florence, published in The Guardian. Well. Wrong. The pasta was below average, and the mixed salad we ordered, although made of fresh ingredients, was just sad pieces of veg with no dressing...More

I ordered bistecca florentina and it was delicious and juicy. The place is a bit more expensive than other places that serve steaks but the quality is really outstanding. I highly recommend visiting the place after a tiring day of shopping.

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
