My husband and I ate here as part of our tour group one night. They had a huge backroom that held our whole group. The house wine was a good price and delicious. My husband had veal and I had the tortellini in rose sauce,...More

Trattoria Baldini is a delicious authentic Italian restaurant, specializing in the cuisine of Florence. It is a hidden gem, off the beaten path. It is a restaurant for the locals. The menu was written in Italian only -- a very good sign -- an Italian...More

You will see many locals here but I actually can't fathom why. Florence has so many amazing and quant restaurants but this was by far the least favourite that we tried during our weeks stay. The staff were very aloof (we had read previous warnings...More

I have been here every year at least once, since 1996 - the first time on a recommendation from a local. The waitstaff has stayed pretty much the same. They are attentive and business like, not given to false flattery. The menu is basic, and...More

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
