We were suggested by our hotel to escape from the usual routes and go to a less crowded area of Florence to enjoy a not-tourist place. This was a great choice! Chic and relaxed confortable atmosphere, charming welcome by the restaurant manager and great food. We spent there a long time enjoying fine plates in a modern tasty italian style.... More

Craving seafood I asked the Hotel David where I stayed to book a local place for me, and they came up with the San Niccolo 39.

We had dinner at San Niccolo 39 (Filipepe) and we had a very good experience. The food has a very good quality and it is basically seafood and fish with a few options of meat or vegetarian.

On a side street. Surprising decor. Excellent service. If you are looking for a delightful place , not touristy, this is your spot. Loved every minute of it. Great maître D, Paul I think? Hilarious.

I was very excited to see the new look of San Niccolo 39 which was the ex-Pilipepe in San Niccolo (note that Florentines almost always refer to a restaurant as what it used to be for locational reference). Just walking inside you have the feeling of being in a modern,contemporary bistro but which still has a cozy atmosphere. Take a... More

The place is very nice, close to Porta San Niccolò, obtained by a fine restoration of an old space. the staff is very kind and helpful, at the end even the chef came to assure everything had been ok. Refined dishes with original arrangement. Quality adequate to the price.

This restaurant. Is a little way out from the centre of Florence but still within walking distance - it is well worth seeking out it out because it is a good seafood restaurant with helpful and friendly staff. Just beware that the fish is sold by weight and you can be surprised by the eventual price.

Staying in Piazzale Michelangelo

Neighbourhood Profile
Piazzale Michelangelo
Just outside the ancient walls of Florence, Viale Michelangiolo starts. It is a winding road rimmed by wonderful poplars and holm oaks. The long ascent opens up to the most beautiful and famous panoramic viewpoint of Florence: Piazzale Michelangelo, where an elevated terrace offers visitors an incomparable and breathtaking view of the entire city from above. During good weather, Piazzale Michelangelo provides visitors with a serene space surrounded by the amazing landscape, better if accompanied by a fresh gelato from a local kiosk. During night, visitors will be dazzled by the warm lights of the capital of the Renaissance. Spend a second with the silent Romanesque beauty of the Basilica of San Miniato al Monte: the one that wishes good morning and good night to Florence!
