Great food and hospitality. We had a few starters and pastas, as well as a few desserts, and it was all delicious! Despite some language barriers we felt welcomed and had a really relaxed night. My favourites were the prawns with white beans to start,...More

While the food was of good quality and tasted good, the portions we're small, but the bill was not. We also felt treated like we were "just another couple tourists not worth being polite or friendly to". We felt the service was very poor, but...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
