Such a beautiful place. The interior was so authentic it really felt like Italy. I ordered the Toscana salad which was massive and filling, good value for money €8. However a couple bits of lettuce were brown around the edges, didn't bother me at all...More

I led a group of students and parents to Italy and we had dinner here. The food was good, even for a large group and very fresh. The wait staff was attentive and very friendly.

We came here after Sudden rain forced us to seat down and were pleasantly surprised! The food was great - we had prosciutto with mozzarella, a HUGE 2 person steak and creme Catalan for dessert. Service was good and so was the price

This trattoria was recommended to us by our hotel staff as an authentic Tuscan cuisine place. It's a small family run restaurant. The food was excellent. They serve pretty good bottled house wine. Good service and reasonable prices.

Very nice restaurant with very nice food and most friendly staff. If you don't want to go to one of the big and famous restaurants, go to this one. Same quality of food but much nicer

Extraordinary beef and tiramisu we had in this place, run by a wonderful couple and for a really good price! They were really friendly and invited us for two Grappas. We will come back for sure! Greetings from España e Lettonia! :D

Service was friendly (even overly friendly) and efficient, but the place is sad, with a huge TV right on top or the table, and the food was uneven: the pappardelle al cinghiale tasty but heavy and greasy, the tortelli very bad, the meat ok, and...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
