Good Italian pasta. Good prices. It’s located in the city center, it’s a small typical restaurant with a good atmosphere. We paid 7€ per each pasta. Very tasty. The staff was ok. They don’t accept credit card payments!

Great lunch spot tucked on a side street. Two sisters do all the cooking, great waitstaff, speak Italian. Not many tourists but the menu is translated. Beautiful simple dishes. Lots of local color.

Sorry bout the title, fellow travelers, but that is what I felt when I ordered the fettuccine with truffles. I come from an Italian family and have eaten pasta since I was in diapers, but I realize now that I had much to learn. I...More

Incredible food. Friendly service. Nice options. Good deserts. Good wine. Could eat there everyday. I think one can't get anything more authentic than this in the center of Florence. Mouth watering.

I just wanted to try homecooked food and it was good! I had a plateful of risotto and tiramisu for dessert! A bit uncomfortable eating at the entrance on high chairs but food is good!

The gnochetta was to die for. Melt in your mouth. The service was fine. Other people were ordering the steak and it looked very good

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
