After a morning exploring the Uffizi Gallery and being weary and hungry, this centrally situated establishment was the first place to stumble by before being enticed inside at a time where we would settle for any seat and something edible. It took only a short...More

Never again would I eat here. A really lousy first dinner in Florence. One of those places where you can't stop to look at the menu without being asked what you want to eat. That's not the question! We were tired and it was pleasant...More

We were hot, tired and hungry, and just wanted a quick bite while resting in the Piazza della Signoria. We foolishly thought that we could not go too wrong in the middle of Tuscany but we were very wrong. I had the pappardelle with wild...More

Desperate for food we stopped in at this restaurant, but would have done better to try McDonald's. The staff were friendly enough, but the food was shocking. The tagliatelle and mushrooms was literally just that - no flavour or sauce and the mushrooms hadn't been...More

And we only had the continental breakfast! 'Fresh orange juice' was bottled, despite large bowls of oranges everywhere; the coffee was with UHT milk; the brioche was doughy and undercooked inside - and there was a surcharge! Beware cafés in touristy piazzas!

OK have eaten better, eaten worse. I write as I see, my wild boar was excellent. However the outdoor seating was a little cramped. Nobody in my party really complained about anything we ate..........perhaps we were just lucky!

I wish I could ask for a refund but they would just start a fight. This was an absolute waste of money. Simple advice, stay away - they can't even microwave things right

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
