We came here every morning for great Italian coffee and very friendly service. I don't about the Japanese food they apparently serve, but the morning coffee here was great, and the service very friendly.

This frantic small cafe is located around the corner from the Santa Maria Basilica and provided a nice break from the tourist stream and shelter on a rainy day - it is not a full restaurant but more of an informal cafe where you can get take away or enjoy the crowded seating inside and have a sandwich or piece...

Typical Japanese but in Florence great atmospher and off course ever so fresh. I love my food and find this place converting in the evening from a typical Italian cafe to a fantastic restaurant. This place is very busy and you may find yourself having to wait.

This restaurant looked lovely, so we decided to have an evening meal there. Unfortunately, once we were shown to a table, we waited 15 minutes and no one came back to take our order, not even for drinks. We decided to leave and went elsewhere.

My husband and I were craving for Ramen, when we spotted this place on our way to our hotel. We decided to eat the next night here, since it was only 1 block down from our hotel. The doors open at 7:00pm and we got there at around 6:50pm. There was already a line formed outside the door! Once the... More

The service was ok, and the food was average. You pay here for the opportunity to'watch the world go by'.

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
