Small restaurant recommended by the locals.The food was stunning. Great menu with so many authentic choices. Good service as well. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Florence.

The mussel soup was nice, but the rabbit ("hunter style") was disappointing. The beans as side dish was undercooked. The service is fast and really nice.

We went to this spot in the busy square on a Sunday evening quite late and waited several minutes for anyone to greet us. We finally tried approaching several of the staff members who kept passing us and kept being told to hold on. Another couple came and joined the queue to wait and happened to stop the manager and...

Excellent food in this small resto. They offer half portions so you can try many dishes. I really recommend the gnocchi. The staff is rude though. Came with two friends twice and both complained about the service. Book a table before going as it gets crowded.

Lovely place close to Ponte Vechio. Relationship quality and price is best in town. Don't miss the tagliatelle with nuts and cheese and gnochi with beef!!Is a must!!

Stopped by for a quick light lunch and ordered zuppa di cozze - expecting a bowl with a few mussles in. What I got was more of a size of basin, filled with big, delicious mussles in a flavoury sauce. All for probably less than 10 euro. It was delicious. Visited in September 2013.

Dinner at Osteria Santo Spirito was adequate, nothing more. The locale is nice -- lovely, animated piazza. The menu is fairly typical for an osteria. The portions are huge, so the half-size versions of some pastas that are offered are the way to go. You'll get a decent meal here, but nothing to write home (or a glowing review) about.

we're currently spending our summer holidays in tuscany and have eaten in a lot of restaurants. some were holarious, some were o.k. but this osteria is really a nightmare. you have the feeling as if you were in a fast food restaurant. food was absolutely not worth the money: we've had gnocchi with ragu(at least kind of o.k.), gnocchi with...

We were recommended to come here by our B & B host and it totally delivered. We jumped straight into the 1.2 kilo mega Florentine steak and it was outrageously good. Perfectly cooked, delicious flavour and wonderful accompanying wine. We had it with the potatoes, spinach and a massive salad which were all excellent. Fairly faultless meal. Well recommended!

Thank Yoav S
