We were fortunate to find this restaurant as my daughter is Vegan and I am not, and I was hoping to find some great pasta. They did not disappoint. Vegan pasta with artichokes and spinach were fabulous, as well as the lasagna. It was so wonderful that we went back and ate there again. Great wines and delightful atmosphere.

Hard to find this small little jewel in the middle of Florence, but was definitely worth the trouble! Great food, great combination of flavors! After all the Pizza Pasta, finally a healthy meal! Very recommended. Though the service isn't that great, on the other hand, in Italy itself service is not a top criteria, as it's sucks most of the... More

Made a reservation on the phone the day before and they claimed they didn't have anything even though I showed them the exact call on my cellphone. The person in charge flipped through some scribbled notes with a lot of crossed out lines and side notes. Operational mess. Shameful.

Service wasn't good. We made reservation at 8pm one day ahead of time but when we got there we were led to a small table next to the exit. No water and bread served, isn't that supposed automatically done for the cover charge? our food arrived 45 min later after we placed our order. The waiter wasn't friendly at all.... More

We were turned away without apology so be sure to book. We had phoned but got no answer. Don't leave it to change. The aromas alone were SENSATIONAL!

Fancied a vegetarian restaurant, our Apartment Host suggested here. From the outside looks like a bookshop with a few tables, no sign on the door, walked straight past it. There are more tables through a bijou courtyard. Very busy even though we dined early by Italian standards (7pm), as we hadn't booked, understood we had to vacate by 8.30pm. Waitress... More

I was blown away by the zucchini flower 'carbonara' pasta. One of the finest, yet most simple dishes I tasted in nine days in Italy. The sort of hand pie secondi was good but not great, and the raw zucchini salad was quite tasty but a bit heavily dressed and had an almost overwhelming amount of walnuts (I picked some... More

This was the best meal I ate in Florence. I had the peach risotto and my partner had the sharing plate (pasta, salad and wrap). Whilst it is a vegetarian food venue, the quality of the food was exceptional! The waitress is a little stern! but aside from that, would highly recommend to anyone who loves fresh healthy wholesome food... More

Visited this restaurant with my family in August. It was FANTASTIC! Can't recommmend enough. The lunch selection was great, mixing 3 of the different parts of the menu together to give you a great taste of what they offer. My 2 sons ( meat eaters) asked the waitress to select for them and she did a great job, choosing one... More

You cannot skip this restaurant on a trip to Florence! We got a tip to go here and it was just fantastic. The food was delicious, the service was friendly and fast, the atmosphere of the restaurant is also very nice. We felt very welcome and well treated. As far as the veggie aspect concerns: you do not have to... More

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
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.
