Tried this restaurant after a long day sight seeing. A nice mix of locals and tourists, very friendly staff, good menu with traditional tuscan offerings and very nice food. Would definitely recommend. Whilst there, a really, really old Italian chap wandered in. He sat down and the waitress helped him settle in and placed a plate of gnocci and drink... More

Reserve a table over there!! :)-they have excellent food and wine, are really friendly and it is not touristic, but authentic. It is not cheap, but worth it!!!

The restaurant is nicely located in the city centre of Florence. The restaurant is nicely decorated and looks cool from outside. However, the waiters are arrogant and NOT welcoming. We were a party of two and ordered a pasta and the salmon with black rice. The pasta was not well-cooked and not even al-dente. Salmon was OK but cold with... More

We popped in when starving after a wonderful morning tour of Florence. Atmosphere is wonderful. When asked if we had a reservation and saying no we were quickly put in a table behind the door! It was perfect for us! I had an amazing Caprese salad with a huge ball of burrata. Delicious! My sister had meal balls with green... More

We found this restaurant on EAT ITALY app (which we really like). The food was fantastic. The owner, who receives lots of comments, was a bit quirky, but I think it added to the charm of the place. He seems to pay "special" attention to locals which I found entertaining. We did not feel out of place at all, Everything,... More

Stopped her on a whim when nearby Trattoria Marione was on a wait and it started raining. We were not disappointed. Delicious pasta at reasonable prices. Small, intimate setting. And reasonably priced house wine. Enough said. We would go back.

We had an absolutely wonderful meal for two. The waiter was fantastic and really hilarious and his over-the-top interaction with us. The pasta ragu was amazing, and the Bistecca for two was too large to finish, but it was absolutely delicious. We definitely recommend this restaurant, and we will return for sure. We think the other reviews about the staff... More

My mother and I are staying at an apartment upstairs and thought to give it a go last night, from the moment we set foot into the restaurant I felt rushed and disrespected. After we ordered, we waited for 10 minutes for our water to arrive when it wasn't even busy and people who arrived behind us were already served.... More

Very cute little restaurant with a cosy atmosphere. Staff was super nice and helpful. Food is excellent and was served very quickly. Try the bresaola. Prices are fair. Definitely worth going

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
