Nice and cosy restaurant 3 minutes from Ponte Vecchio. Amazing appetizers with differnt types of parma ham and cheeses; very fresh mushroom salad and amazing pasta! The atmosphere is local and elegant at the same time; very attentive service so nothing to complain about! I will surely come back next time that I'll be in Florence.

We loved this cozy family run place. There was a little hiccup in our reservation but they handled it graciously. The food was wonderful. My only comment is that the female server seemed a little abrupt, unfriendly. Perhaps a cultural issue, perhaps due to the reservation mix up, perhaps just personality. Anyway, we recommend a visit here. Make a reservation!

This is a great place to eat, wonderful food in this restaurant with deli. The food is not what you expect which makes it all the more interesting. The staff were generally very good and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to go back here.

Olio & Convivium is a deli cum restaurant that offers all sorts of Italian delicacies like cured meats, cheeses, wines and of course olive oil. We stepped in for a look and ended up having lunch. We tried two different tasting menus --- the Leccio and the Olio. Both offered a four course meal with an appetizer, two courses and... More

The chef here should be ashamed of themselves. I attended for dinner and found the food to be bland and overcooked. How the chef allowed several fillets of overcooked seabass with no seasoning to reach the pass is beyond me. Absolutely dreadful.

You eill be surrounded by foreigners and feel as you need to be best friends with your neighbors as the tables are rather close to each other, but the food is authentic and the wine list very extensive and reasonably priced. The service was friendly, though on the night we went it was slow to the point we wondered if... More

Olio is located in the same street as our apartment, it was recommended to us by the owner and its TripAdvisor reviews were good; so three good reasons for trying it. What turned out was a very short walk for a really good supper! The restaurant seems to comprise a number of small rooms which gives it an intimate atmosphere... More

Staying in Santo Spirito / San Frediano

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour. Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and they cannot help but stare at the architectural masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria delle Carmine churches.
