This restaurant was next door to our hotel, and we ate delicious pizza at a good price! We loved the convenience, decorations, and modern feel!

It is crowded but getting seated quickly was never a problem. We ate their twice. Good service. Some servers spoke English well, others spoke English about as good as my Italian but you make it work. the menu is in Italian and English. The strawberry cheesecake with thyme was the best dessert we have ever had. Dinners were spaghetti vongole... More

This restaurant is next door to the Grand Hotel Mediterraneo where we stayed. The menu is not extensive, but adequate. The food was quite good. We had basic pasta with sauce, risotto and a shrimp dish that was to die for! Service is prompt and not overdone.

We were spending a week in Florence and arrived at our hotel late in the evening, tired and ravenous! Although we were staying just by the river not too far from the tourist centre, on Lungano della Zecca Vechcia, so late on a Sunday evening it seemed quite deserted, with certainly no sign of anywhere to eat! Asking at reception,without... More

We visited this place as a large pre-booked in group as part of a tour. The staff were fabulous, looking out for us and generally being very, very helpful. The food was a set menu and was delicious. We had a rustic roast chicken which was so tasty and cooked to perfection. The place was busy but the staff dealt... More

Being that it was next to our hotel, we decided to eat at the Outside Bistro for supper. The staff were courteous and answered all of our questions about the different food selections on the menu. Overall, meals were good, but not a lot for the money.

Visited for dinner Wednesday evening. The two of us were seated straight away and service and staff were brilliant! Ordered the dumplings and seafood which was of brilliant quality and the carbonara which was also great. As an extra we ordered the vegetarian pizza which wasn't great, did not feel it was cooked properly and didn't include much cheese! However... More

A cozy bistro with a gorgeous interior/modern atmosphere. My two friends and I came here for lunch as it was only a couple blocks away from our hotel and we were starving. It was not busy and we were seated right away. The food and service was great.
