Food was classic, with a modern take. Enjoyed every bite. Excellent wine selection. Although tourists there, it is located in a more local area. Reservations required, and they only take reservations via email 2 weeks in advance.

This is a good restaurant with the usual (local) food that is well prepared. However don't expect exceptional creations. As a starter we had the very traditional mixture of meat and cheese from Tuscany. While the quality was excellent, it's a dish you can find on every corner of the street. As main course we had the wild boar with... More

Casual night out and the food was outstanding. As a couple of tourists, was good to cross the river and get away from the crowds and eat at this local favorite. The chef let's the quality of the ingredients do the work and is only minimally spiced to perfection. We didn't have a reservation on a busy night, but they... More

We had high hopes for this place as it was repeatedly recommended by various sources. As such, we reserved for our last night in Italy. The meal started off well with great burrata, a chicken liver terrine- a twist on the usual crostini and salumi/cheese. Our server was friendly and relatively attentive. Our primi of taglioni with pheasant was delicious... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a restaurant owner in Salerno. We were most certainly not disappointed with the food. The most mouth watering chicken liver pate I have ever tasted. Friendly staff made us feel at home. We thought we might stay for a drink and an appetizer, but we ended up staying for almost 2 hours! Lovely atmosphere... More

We went twice for dinner and were nit disappointed. An amazing wine list, great food, menus change every week. The atmosphere is great, it is a restaurant suitable for couples, friends, business, anyone who loves really good food. Their fig jam with cheese is not to be missed. Booking is a must.

We were recommended to eat here. We had a look (and a quick look at the reviews) and decided to book - although three days before a table was available. The food was very good, the service fine and the wine good and reasonably priced (for Florence). Overall we had a really good meal in nice surroundings.

Staying in Santo Spirito / San Frediano

Neighbourhood Profile
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. Tourists and Florentines alike join up in the area between Santo Spirito and San Frediano, connecting the Tuscan soul to the international spirit permeating the city.
