From the moment I wrote to book a table the staff (Flora and Francesca) was incredibly friendly and attentive to please us in any possible way. The place is beautiful, very quiet and cozy (only 7 tables), elegant but homey so it is not intimidating...More

The menu was well introduced. Considering our relatively smaller appetite (reserving capacity for desserts), we've ordered appetizer, one pasta and one main for sharing. The dinner was started off with two glasses of champagne, right at the moment when we were pondering though the menu....More

We had dinner at the Guelfi & Ghibellini in January 2011 and liked it very much. So we reserved again for our stay in January 2012. Our mistake was that we didn't ask whether the cook was still the same - it wasn't. The staff...More

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.

Description
Located in the heart of Florence between the Croce Basilica and the Duomo, the Relais Santa Croce is a stupendously decadent restaurant set inside the splendour of an 18th century palace ��� the Palazzo Gioffi-Jacometti, which was commissioned in the early 1700s by the Pope's treasurer, the Marquis Baldinucci. With soaring frescoed ceilings, ornate wood panelled walls and beautiful antique furniture, the dining room at Relais Santa Croce is a spectacular venue for dinner parties and celebrations. Famous for their age-old Tuscan recipes, the chefs select their produce daily at the historic Sant Ambrogio markets, and the kitchen's signature dish is the succulent Fiorentina steak from Chianina cattle ��� a breed older than the Roman empire itself.
