The best meal you can find in Florence. Superbly prepared meats and farm to table vegetables. And, for visitors, instead of hotel room service, visit their take-out window for the best roast chicken you will ever have (which you can take back to your hotel...More

Very nice from start to finish. We sat in the first room coming in the front door, and ambiance was excellent. Service, food and prices were all very good. We were in Florence 4 days, and this was our favorite. I would definitely recommend.

The food was very simple yet so tasty. The spicy penne was so amazing. The server Lorenzo was so friendly and very welcoming. I would go back for sure. The wine selection is very good and fair priced.

A wonderful restaurant. It was recommended to me by a friend and it didn't disappoint. I ordered Spaghetti alla Carrettiera from the menu of the day and it was gorgeous! The house red is also good. Would recommend!

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
