We went for lunch & had different pizzas. Nice location, pleasant outside but the food & service were very, very ordinary. Nothing wrong with it but nothing to tempt me back. Plenty of better establishments round & about

Had a very tasty potato ravioli with sage butter (€12). Wine by the glass (€6) - but it's a large glass. Cover charge of €1.50, which I'm not so keen on.

Great place to stop and grab a little wine. Cozy and out of the way on a busy street. I can't comment on the food because we just had a glass of red. Enjoy.

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
come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
