Got recommended this place from a young florentine’s foodie and I wasn’t disappointed! Lovely minimalistic setting with stripped walls and basic seating. The menu is very interesting and definitely not ordinary! We didn’t go for the set menu and instead decided for “a la carte”....More

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
