Found on the Guardian article for budget restaurants. Very poor pasta; I didn't even want to finish it. Mixed salad was also very plain. Don't know why people recommend this place. I would suggest everyone NOT to eat here.

I ordered bistecca florentina and it was delicious and juicy. The place is a bit more expensive than other places that serve steaks but the quality is really outstanding. I highly recommend visiting the place after a tiring day of shopping.

A typical tuscan wine house with a good meal deal for a dinner... We had 3 small dishes and 1/2 a bottle of wine each for like €13. Not all of us enjoyed the food but my dishes were certainly some of the best food...More

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
