Wanted gnocchi and got some here. Not 100% sure it was home made due to shape but might well have been. Friends dinner was very salty (veal mushroom and tomato) wasn't what we thought it would be...it was watery. Dessert was home made which was nice.but we asked for cream 3 times to come with a dessert and it didn't... More

Chose this restaurant on our first evening in Florence as it looked quite busy when we walked by. We were shown to a table quickly and were looked after by a couple of waiters. My wife had bruschetta followed by roast pork, which were both nice. I had the marinated sardines and the osso bucco, which I ordered with new... More

Looking for a different restaurant but stumbled upon this one instead. Great location. Good atmosphere, lovely food and excellent service. Bruschetta and Panna cotta especially delicious.

After a morning with lots of walking we wandered in for a leisurely lunch. Service was fine (we weren't in a hurry--just the contrary). Good, relatively simple dishes.

We asked a spaghetti with vongole and another pasta with tomato sauce, olive and mashrooms. Both were common, nothing special. The vongole sauce was better. The service was ok and the place is good.

We've eaten here twice and the service was just okay both times. The food was also good but not great - except for the creamy truffle pasta which was by far the best dish on both occasions. We won't go back but would recommend this dish if you stumble onto this restaurant.

Our host at the Air BNB just down the street recommended this trattoria for our first dinner in Florence. We were definitely NOT disappointed!!! It was, in fact, our first dinner in Italy, and we knew that Florence is known for amazing beef, so that's what we chose. It truly melted in our mouths!! Everything that we ordered was fantastic.

I was working for the past two weeks in the area of the restaurant. I was fortunate to go there on my second day of work and it was very good. Great Value Service and Food. Mostly locals who have ,inch there often. I wanted to go today but it was fully booked so that tells you a lot. Go

We were looking for a lunch place away from the main squares and ended up here. It was a great choice. My husband and I shared a steak for 2 that was cooked to perfection and the texture was wonderful and the flavors were so natural. Our son had a pasta and then a chicken breast that was grilled and... More

Great restaurant to try a variety of dishes. Over our week long stay in Florence, we came here twice. Once for lunch and then again for dinner. We had a wide range of foods, from a delicious anti pasti platter to their juicy kilo of Florentine steak. The papardelle with rabbit sauce was excellent as well. Great food, great service... More

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
