Found ourselves in the vicinity and decided to go in for lunch. The specials list offered up some fantastic, fresh, seasonal food. The fresh pasta was perfectly cooked and the flavours were authentic and the ingredients good quality. Service was attentive and friendly, despite being busy. All round, a great lunch and a typically Italian affair.

Came here on the recommendation of a neighbor and it was amazing. Our waiter "kush" and owner Gianni, welcomed us like family! The mushroom strudel was amazing, along with everything else we tried.

We found this place while looking for lunch before we went to the Accademia to see Michelangelo's David. It is in the square, just around the corner by all of the bus stops. From the outside it looks like a small place but it was quite large inside and the staff were very welcoming. We had delicious pasta but the... More

I don't know if Italians eat pizza this way but mine was like a Frankenstein experiment between a sloppy Joe and a pie. You could literally see water dripping down from our pizza slices. The cheese was also not really spread out and the topping portions were miserable. Even a microwave oven pizza would have been better. Horrible pizza experience... More

Our first visit to this restaurant was better than expected - even after reading the great reviews! There were still plenty of open tables around 7:45 pm and we were quickly seated. (We did not reserve beforehand.) We were given the regular menu as well as a "daily specials" menu, both in good English. We ordered a sea bass filet... More

We had our last meal in Florence here and really enjoyed it. All of the reviews said how it was a local-approved spot that treats tourists as humans too and serves darn good Florentine food. The hype was correct. The service was great. We didn't have a reservation but they sat us at a nice table away from the door.... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence, surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking students provides the tranquil surroundings for the elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read the daily newspaper. Home to several universities, including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A bridge connecting the modern cultural activity of Florence to its classic art, represented by the everlasting magnificence of the original David, resonates as a symbol of Florence and of Italy as a whole. Get lost in a Neoclassic world, a journey back in time through historic buildings like Spedale degli Innocenti (Hospital of the Innocents), San Marco church, Basilica della Santissima Annunziata, and natural jewels like the Botanical Gardens.
