Il Mandarino Our only night in Florence and we decided to go to a Chinese restaurant by chance. The top rated ones are all sandwich places so we weren't so excited about going to any of them. We wondered out from our Airbnb apartment to explore the local area (we were staying quite central) and explored the shops and sights... More

Pretty solid Chinese food, coming from an Asian family from the San Francisco Bay Area. We had the pineapple fried rice (good), chicken chop suey (good, fresh mushrooms), chicken with Thai sauce (more brownish in color than an expected red), and a steam fish (super good, fresh too)! The only gripe was that the fish came to the table really... More

Very passable Chinese food, above the average one expects outside of Asia. We shared a sour fish soup, Cantonese fried rice, some deliciously fresh and well-cooked bok choy, and half a Peking duck which -- while not being entirely authentically prepared -- was very tasty indeed. The decor and service was good, and given its high-traffic location the price was... More

We went to this restaurant for a light lunch on a hot sunny day in early July. The reason we choose this restaurant because the interior look clean and the menu look decent. The food was ok, and the portion were very small. What make me wanting to write this feedback was their service. The service was awfully poor, especially... More

Not being a fan of Italian food can't bode well for you if you are traveling in the country for 2 weeks, so I keep trying other cuisines and that is how I landed up here! And what a great decision it was! Located near Palazzo Vechhio, this place not only has a wide fare but turns out a great... More

When the waiter delivering the food, he was talking to another waiter and never looked at us. The noddles was fine even though it was not what we had ordered. The waiter did not explain why until we asked about.

We liked the food, but the service was quite unacceptable. We were three people, 15 minutes passed between the first and the last starter were served. The rice arrived ten minuts before the first main course was served, and the last one had to wait for twenty additional minutes. And we did not order anything special. I do not care... More

Nice restaurant, food is good and service is very careful. Try the rice noodles with vegetables, they taste wonderful. Prices are very moderate.

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
