We enjoyed this restaurant very very much! It's located a bit outside the touristic zone but is certainly a top restaurant in Florence. I would highly recommend to book in advance. They served tasting menu, where you we could try several dishes in small portions....More

Situated outside the main tourist drag in Florence, this food here is well worth the charming walk alongside the river Arno to get to it. A small and intimate place tucked away in a quiet street, the quality of the food and charming understated service...More

The food was inventive, delicious and throroughly enjoyable. The service was attentive and knowing. We would go back in a flash. Excellent and reasonably priced vino. Our best meal in Firenze.

This was without a doubt the best restaurant we visited on our recent trip to Florence. Its a small restaurant, full of local people. The service was brilliant and the food was exceptional. What an amazing night we had, one not to be forgotten

IO has a very unconventional menu: no anti-pasti or pasta dishes. Set menu gives you choices of fish, meat and vegetable dishes; you can choose from different varieties or all of the same (such as all fish dishes). Food quality and flavors are excellent.

Was there with my girlfriend. We have enjoyed great atmosphere and the slightly experimental cuisine. Don't expect traditional Pizza & Pasta but the food is great and worth every Euro. Modern atmosphere. Very nice and professional staff. Also reasonable priced. A bit difficult to find...More

Attentive service, fine wines from small vineyards, and a committment to local suppliers for raw ingredients - all result in a surprising mix of flavors, textures and temperatures. The medallion of fresh cod, served on a bed of gaspacho cream, and topped with a small...More

Hei, you, American tourist planning to visit Florence and looking for an authentic restaurant: this is a good restaurant and not all the ones you find in crappy guides or that your great-great Uncle recommended you since he's been in Florece 50 years ago. Young...More

We enjoyed our dinner that was very different to all our meals in Tuscany. Creative and the manager who took the orders is a mind reader. Just the perfect order for each one of us to please the individual palate.

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
