the setting, the slightly overbearing attitude and the simplicity of the menu, belies the excellence of the food, particularly the pasta. While the wine is good but not special, the olive oil and bread is truly special.

Went to Vivanda not only to eat organic pasta but to make it. We had a fun pasta making class right in the dining room. We then were served the pasta we made and boy was it delicious. Such a wonderful location, experience, and time.

We are traveling with our adult children who are vegetarians. This place was fantastic. The organic food and wine was a delight. The staff couldn't have been more knowledgeable and friendly. The chefs know what they are doing. So many great dishes!

Went twice on our recent visit to Florence. Stumbled across it the first time and thoroughly enjoyed attentive service, organic wine and great food. Returned for wine tasting and food with same experience. A must go to place not far from the centre.

The service, food, and wine here is awesome. The servers are very friendly and will offer suggestions based on your liking. Must visit for vegetarians or vegans. Gets booked very fast so don't even try to go here without reservation.

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great
company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo
Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the
staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and
they cannot help but stare at the architectural
masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria
