This restaurant is ideal for a "cheap" meal in Florence. the food is good, service is correct and the bill is light. It is also well located in Florence, close to the main museum.

This restaurant was recommended to us by the bed and breakfast we stayed at. It was delicious. All 3 of us thoroughly enjoyed our food! Dessert was the best tiramisu I've had in my life. I now don't dare try tiramisu back in the States because I know it will just be a let down compared to what I now... More

We came in because of the great reviews including trip advisor. It was wonderful. We had ravioli special, a stuffed tomato (cheese and vegetables,) and the house special pizza. We topped it off with homemade cheese cake with a delicious berry sauce. The atmosphere is wonderful and we had some of the best service we have had since we got... More

Some of the best food we had anywhere in Italy. Pastas with yummy sauces, especially the vodka sauce. Excellent service. Would definitely return.

I have been here many times and it continues to be one of my tops in Florence. Whether you are looking for pizza, pasta or meat dishes, you will not be disappointed. Their pizzas are delicious, my favorite is the Ameritrice - or something like that. As for pasta, you can't really go wrong. They have a wonderful pesto, creamy... More

We stumbled across this restaurant by accident! There were 6 of us that were made to feel welcome and we thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere. The wine was fantastic and the food was awesome. A true taste of Italy!

The Florentine steak here is amazing. The house wine pretty good if you don't want to splash out on something more worthy of such a great dish. Have also tried the pizza here, which was really good too. The staff are also really friendly.

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.
