Had a great meal with these guys today. Fabulous asparagus soup and very tasty roast beef. Superb wine selection and attentive service. Reasonably priced set menu plus massive range of traditional toscana dishes. We will return.

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
