Had a fabulous meal (even better with 30% discount on The Fork for food and drinks). and great value. The anti pasti portions are large so recommend just that and second or main course. All food and wine of exceptional quality.

This restaurant is a bit outside of the default touristic area, but the trip is definitely worth it. Most / all off the people in there appeared to be Italian when we visited. The food is really great. Service is very friendly and helpful. The...More

We ate here once during our stay. We all agreed that the food was delicious, but the bottled wine was seriously overpriced. The house red tried was a good accompaniment to the meal. They could learn a lot from the restaurant opposite.

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great
company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo
Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the
staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and
they cannot help but stare at the architectural
masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria
