Owner description: This unique Florentine piazza is the center of the artisan quarter. Dominated by the last masterpiece of Brunelleschi, the Basilica of Santo Spirito, the square is home to little local markets and antique fairs.

Nice little square that has antique/flea markets second Sunday of the month. Pleasant enough to browse around for a little while and some good restaurants/cafes around. Note though that tripadvisor location was wrong by >2kms (may have been resolved so check against printed maps before going).

According to my friends living in Florence, this is the place where the real italian people hang out at night and have drinks. That I don't know, but one thing it's true: there are not as many tourists here as in the other places I've been to in Florence.
I just went there during the day but I really enjoyed it: it has nice restaurants and bars. If it's sunny, you can sit around and have a nice time in the light.
I recommend passing by, for a less touristic but genuinely italian moment.

This piazza is surrounded by nice, simple and fun restaurants and bars. One can sense a live and young atmosphere specially at night. It is accross the Oltrarno river. I got this tip from local friends. I got the feeling it is a less touristic area (if there is such a thing in Florence...). At least, it is definitely less crowded than many other piazzas on the other side of the Arno river!

A bit miserable today... cold and wet, and not many people around.... I guess winter is approaching
We sat down at Ristorante Ricchi on the piazza for a coffee. The atmosphere was homely and the coffee was good, but the staff were not particularly friendly.

Several nice outdoor restaurants to choose from, smaller than many other Piazzas, off the beaten path.
