Lasagna is my all time favorite food. I have very high standards for it. My wife and I were visiting Florence for our honeymoon and stopped by college for an early dinner. The lasagna here was so good, it literally brought tears to my eyes-...More

Top little cafe, staff are great with good English. Small doorway so you may walk past, if you don't give it a visit you'll miss out. It's where the locals grab a snack and unwind.

I've become a regular at College and I often take my guests there. The quality of their panini, bread and ingredients is consistently outstanding. I'm not a vegetarian but I often choose their melt-in-your mouth vegetarian sandwiches. Their small selection of small bites on polenta...More

We had lunch here and it was excellent. We had 3 Paninis and 3 drinks (Cokes). The bill was pretty reasonable. Excellent taste. Friendly owner/staff. They have free wifi too. Probably the cheapest place to eat in Florence.

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
