Excellent, simply prepared food with very fresh ingredients. Several vegetarian options. Quick and friendly service at price that seems like you're underpaying by way too much. Located in a "mall-like" setting, so not easy to find if you're looking for a street address; just enter...More

This is the working man's restaurant in Florence. Right next to the outdoor market! Just a blast and very good food. The owner was energetic and made everyone smile and fell happy. It was all with "gusto". The food was delicious - including the desert

I used to go here for lunch years ago when I was a student. It’s still a great bargain. Focus on the meals that based on fresh ingredients directly from the market. So skip the lasagna and focus on the roast chicken and spinach salad...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.
