6 of us ate here one evening on a 4 day visit to Florence a few weeks ago. This was the best restaurant we ate in during our stay in a “moderate” price bracket. The restaurant isn’t in the main central Florence area but it...More

Exceptional Food, exceptional service, exceptional value. Matteo the owner engages directly with each guest, food is generally small portions but many courses do hit the spot. We loved it so much we had dinner here 2 out of our 3 nights in Firenze. Highlights: Russian...More

Exceptional food. Great service and ambience. Small restaurant, full and turning people away. Ravioli is a masterpiece as was the pork fillet (with coffee- yes coffee). Highly recommended

So it’s the kind of food - when you want Italian with a twist- a small place with a dishes that have a flurry of flavor from the appetizer through the dessert. Give up your expectations and explore the happiness of tastes.

We ate at IO whilst visiting Florence over New Year 2017. We opted for the taster menu and the fact that you can choose each course is a fantastic idea that we hadn't seen elsewhere. Every course was amazing and the service matched the quality...More

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
