After a week in Italy, we were pizza-ed out and went to this Indian restaurant very hesitantly! Was so pleasantly surprised when the food arrived. Highly recommended. Try the chicken seekh kebab, the slow cooked dal and meat karhai - delish!!

We were in Florence for two days and ate here on both days! Lovely Indian food, super host and a very enjoyable experience! Don't look around for Indian food in Florence - just head to Zafferano and you won't be disappointed! Loved it!
