Don't go! Terrible service, food is bland and god forbid you want some extra soya sauce! Don't waste your money and time. This is no where near an authentic Japanese Ramen place.

I craved Ramen for months after living on Italian food for a while. From what I understood, the Ramen place opens only on weekend. We went there once and it was sold out. They only did 100 portions each day. We went again at lunch time. Food was finished by 12:50 and we were the last group that got in.... More

Came here for my birthday dinner, thought the place looked authentic but I was mistaken. The ramen was probably the smallest portion I've ever been offered at a restaurant in fact a pack of instant ramen is probably about double the portion size. Gyoza was tasteless, no garlic or ginger. Had to ask for soy to accompany it and was... More

On a very cold day, I and my husband needed something hot to warm up. Their Ramen and rice with marinated pork were our one of best choices in firenze.

Nice to find this spot in Florence. I had a meal with gyoza, rice & meat and miso ramen. Not too fancy a it shouldn't be. Price quality ratio very, very good.

Broth was authentic and great and this is coming from Asians who eat japanese cuisine at least once a week. Waiting time for food is slightly longer ..at least 15 mins but having a steaming hot bowl of ramen ...in Italy..is worth it!

So I have been in Tuscany for quite a while. I thought I'd give my palate a break from the usual Tuscan food and tried this Ramen my friends are raving about. I ordered no.4 on the menu. It's great! The noodles are so awesome, with meat and egg, YUM! The serving is small though, so don't be shy to... More

I have to admit I did not really expect ramen to be so good in Italy. For some reason, I was slightly dissapointed by all the food that I found in "attrape-touristes" restaurants and barely had any hope to find some good Japanese food. We ordered chicken ramen and vegetarian yakisoba, as this are your only choices if you are... More

The broth is at best average, pork not very tender and hard boiled egg. You cannot book and the Italian greedy lady stresses you out because she wants to serve as more people as she can

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.
