Excellent restaurant - granted we were referred by a friend and were spoiled by Romario - but it was a great meal, and a fun restaurant, great atmosphere. We each had a steak - one with a sauce and one with out - both very good; plus starters and desert and some lovely wine. Right in the heart of Florence.... More

You have to stand in line for 20-30 minutes to get in. You wonder why. It is a big trattoria seating 80-90. You say 'to hell with this wait'-- but then you think 'why' people are standing in line. And 90% seem to come from Korea! I asked Antonio, the brilliant maitre d' why. Evidently it is the best known... More

As South Africans we pride ourselves on 3 things: rugby, beer drinking and meat on the fire, aka braai. So imagine our surprise when we tasted and enjoyed and wanted more of the best piece of meat we've had so far! No disappointments, no frills, excellent service from Marco (best waiter here;)) and a truly amazing experience. Now all we... More

Best meal during 2 weeks in Italy. Had steak for 2 + wine + dessert. Got a free shot of grappa (wife got Limoncello). Didn't need reservation, just stumbled upon it while looking for a restaurant recommended in a tourist book. We ended up going to recommended restaurant next day (it was horrible), but this one was absolutely fantastic. Service... More

We've been here for one dinner only, nevertheless it was a nice one: steaks were excellent, service quite fast. Keep in mind that booking isn't allowed and you could have to wait for a table.

Great burrata! Great bruschetta! Great wines! Great meat! Even better service! Ask to be waited by Marchello. He did a wonderful job and made our evening. Highly recommended

The best food we had in Florence. Me and my wife being vegetarians usually find it difficult to find good vegetarian food. However this place did not disappoint us. The options were limited but they were damn tasty. The ambience of the restaurant was very charming and the staff was very polite.

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.
