“Lovely Spot for Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

Located on a relatively quiet piazza, Santo Spirito, Borgo Antico is a wonderful spot to have lunch al fresco on a nice day. We had just climbed the Duomo and were about to explore the Biboli gardens when we stopped here for lunch.

The two pizzas we ordered with quite good with a nice thin crust and an especially flavorful tomato base. A pasta with clams offering was also well liked. And a spinach salad was excellent with its mix of spinach and regular lettuce with shavings of parmesan and laced with balsamic glaze.

The food, service and the location just hit the spot for a nice midday meal while touring this gorgeous city.

“Revisiting a favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

Visited this restaurant several times in June this year.
Stopped by for a light lunch today and they did not disappoint! Spinach salad with shaved Parmesan and slivers of roasted almonds, sundried tomatoes. Pizza Napoli was delicious as usual.
Spent about €30, including 1/2 little carafe of house wine, bottled water.
Great food, good value for money.

“OK food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

a nice place frequrnted mostly by locals, food was good and so was the service. The burger was cooked to perfection and the pasta the kids had was also quite good. Prices are OK too. The only problem qe had was that despite if javing teserved a table inside we were seated close to door which resulted in a burst of cold wind from time to time as the door was left open

“Lunch on Piazza San Spirito”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

The Piazza Spirito is famous in Firenze and to pick the right restaurant amongst them on the piazza is not eay..but we did it ! The staff is smiling, they speak your language ( or they do their best). You have a fine quick lunch for a vey acceptable price. Theur pizze are very tasty and very thin ...and they have a large choice of wines by glass
A very good experience that we're happy to share
