I conduct daily photography tours around Florence, and I almost always take my clients here if we are doing lunch. Great Florentine steak, spaghetti carbonara, and they have a great M-F Lunch special with first and second plates including cover charge for the price of a first plate only at many restaurants!

Couldn't be happier to have had someone recommend me this place. Ate the most mouthwatering Fiorentina, which is cooked on the grill giving it a delicious taste and is served with roast potatoes. Pasta was also really well cooked with simple yet superb tomato sauce. Good house wine, great atmosphere and service. Definitely recommended.

Lasagna and grilled chicken were great! We wanted another drink but the waitress never came back to our table. Reasonably priced for delicious food. Service was average.

We had three different entrees and each enjoyed our meals immensely. Would highly recommend this restaurant. Not touristy, tons of locals.

We asked the receptionist at our hotel for a recommendation and she recommend La Spada as a place where she and her father go. Although this was a Thursday evening and we had no reservation we were lucky to get a table as by 8/8.30 the place was completely full and not just tourists. we opted for Antipasto Della Casa,...

I never send food back but the lasagne served to me in a small bowl looked like soup. Their excuse was that's what happens when it's made fresh. I don't think so and I know so! The replacement roasted chicken dish was so dry I couldn't eat it. My 2 other friends ordered a pasta trio and meat trio. The... More

Met family also travelling in Florence for dinner who had previously dned at La Spada and wanted to go back. They offer 2 prix fix meals, one for 30 euro for appetizer, steak and dessert and the other for 35 euro that included a Tuscan soup. Our meals were outstanding. Our waiter, however, was less than attentive, seemed overwhelmed and... More

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.
