Had our first meal in Florence here and were not disappointed! Our waitress was top notch and very helpful, and the food (squid ink tuna!) was incredible. A bit of a walk but absolutely worth it.

My wife and I chose to dine from the 5 samples menu. This allows you to have 2 starters, 1 first course, 1 main course and a dessert. But both of you have to have the same courses. Of the starters the pea ice cream,...More

Spectacular. Interesting, high quality food. Perfect service. Great value. Lovely ambience. Couldn't recommend more. The scallops was the dish we have eaten for a long time. The entire four course tasting menu is a treat not to be missed.

This little restaurant in an up and coming neighborhood on "the other side" of the Arno is a breath of fresh air, an oasis of calm away from the craziness that is central Florence in the summer months. The setting is modern and pleasant and...More

IO is not your typical Florentine osteria. A bit off the tourist map (but well worth the walk), culinary surprises await the adventurous. You'll enjoy fine but casual dining in a 28-seat space for high-concept cuisine beautifully and uniquely executed and presented. The minimalist decor...More

Visited here for dinner. Incredible, exciting and dynamic food, amazing wine, brilliant service. This should definitely be heading for a Michelin star soon. A little on the pricey side but 100% worth it. We all loved it completely. Thank you!

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
