I'm writing this review as my body is still thawing out. Just returned from dinner at Haveli and I'm so disappointed. I was really excited to go there tonight after five days of amazing Italian food. An Indian needs his curry fix every few days. Made a reservation and arrived on time at 930. We were seated outside in a... More

Something different for New Year's Day. We love Indian food and we were not disappointed. Good food, friendly service. Nice walk and easy to find. I recommend the chicken vindaloo if you like a bit of spice. 10/10 would go back again.

Haveli has all elements of a great restaurant, great food, great service and great location. We visited the restaurant because we were yearning for some Delhi style Indian grub and this place delivered above and beyond expectations. Would highly recommend the tandoori chicken and daal makhani. And do not forget the gulab jamun with some flaming old monk for good... More

The food at Haveli is heavenly. The food is very rich and is the classic, Indian style. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. The restaurant transports you to India and you won't have the feeling that it is in Florence. The Dal Makhani and Paneer makhani were the stars of the meal. I would look forward to dinning at...

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.
