Very average and expensive food. Salty, oily and bland. We had far better food bought freash in a local small shop and cooked by ourselves. Also, the whole place was overrunncredibly loud Americans.

We ended to this place by accident, in the end of lunch time. And how lucky we were, got the last table and saw several guests turned away after us. Food was just fantastic - bruschetta and spagetti with olio, aligio and peperoncino were among...More

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

This restaurant is busy and fills quickly. Food is cooked from fresh which increases waiting times too. So I would suggest you get there early or reserve.
