We went to La Vinaina after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. The restaurant was completely empty when we arrived at 7pm which would normally put us off but we went in anyway. Great welcome from the owner. She doesn't speak much English which in our...More

Not a lot of English spoken but that wasn't a problem. There were 6 of us so we asked for recommendations and both the quantity and quality were spot on. This is a very small family run restaurant and everything was fresh and delicious. I...More

I don’t think we need to say much more that what previous reviews have said; we knew we were at a good place when a family who was finishing their diner said to us that they were coming again! We will do the same for...More

Small, but all home made and really good food. People here are really willing to help you to get the best choice of food for you. It’s out of the centre, 10 minutes but eat here!!

We only had three days in Florence, and it took a lot of deliberation to settle on our dinners for the two evenings we knew for sure were free. I thought this one looked cute and homey, so we decided to give it a try...More

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
