They offer good food, and a good value, but I find the environment too touristy. It's not uncommon to find very large group tours in the back rooms.

The place is nice, the food is average, definitely not the best, but for the price(I went there with a coupon from groupon) it deserves 4 stars!

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

The restaurant is located in a building built in the fourteenth century and inhabited by families known as the Pazzi, Frescobaldi, Guicciardini and Albizzi. Vasari ironically call "the Visacci" for the statues in bas-relief on the facade depicting illustrious Florentine men. The restaurant offers typical Tuscan cuisine with assortments of early imaginative, meat on the grill with the highlight of the "Bistecca Fiorentina" and a selection of wines always updated certainly lived up to the best tasting. Every Saturday and Sunday from 20.00 Dinner TASTING DIVINE. A menu 'always with new pairing each dish with a different wine from a winery selected among the best in Tuscany that we illustrate' everything 'that you should know about wine more' popular in the world.
