After walking around the Pitti Palace for a few hours we needed lunch. We found this gem a couple of blocks away. Even on a Tuesday lunchtime they were busy but luckily they could fit us in without a reservation. The service was friendly and welcoming - my wife speaks Italian but our waiter spoke some English. The food arrived... More

This is a neighborhood gem. Frequented by locals. Make sure you have a reservation. We did not and had to eat and leave by 8pm. Not a problem. Food was great. Loved the Tuscan Soup.

Having read some reviews of this place we thought we'd give it a go! This place is extremely busy, many tables are reserved by locals, and we were lucky that they could squeeze us in. The menu is in Italian which meant we unfortunately stuck to the safe options. Whilst the waitress could help try to explain items, it didn't... More

After reading all the reviews on TA we made this trattoria a must for our visit to Firenze. Wow were we disappointed. I made a booking via their website which ensured we had a table at this busy trattoria on a Saturday night. On arrival waiter eventually acknowledged us and seated us. Then put the menus down with some stale... More

Started with the Bruschetta Pomodoro and Caprese, which were both excellent. Where do they get such great tomatoes!! Then had the Roasted Chicken with the roasted potatoes, which both are the best! Topped the meal with Panna Cotta and to say the least, it was a meal to remember.

We were passing it by on the way to Cappella Brancacci chapel. Had lunch. Liked it came back for dinner. Traditional Italian food. Good prices and service . Dishes arrive quickly. Its very busy but has tables at the back in case you look through the window and dont see any available tables. We are planning to go there again

This was a recommendation from the host if the apartment we rented. We wanted good authentic Italian family food, and that is what we received. We enjoyed it so much we went back 3 times. Great value, great service, fabulous food in a very touristy town. We ordered different dishes each time we visited and everything was fabulous.

Neighbourhood Profile
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 delle Carmine churches.
