Can't understand the poor reviews of this bar/bistrot. We had good food, very good and friendly service in a nice environment on the street, but seemingly protected from the street by the cover. 40 euro lunch for three with quite a bit of food and...More

Went there for a quick lunch and did not enjoy any part of the restaurant. The food was bland and boring. The bread actually tasted like cardboard...no exaggeration. The service was rude and the whole place felt frantic. I would avoid. There are plenty of...More

This restaurant achieves the trifecta for a bad Italian restaurant: --A somewhat Indifferent wait staff that adds 15% to your bill --Extremely slow preparation time --Pizza that tastes like cardboard. I would swear it is made from purchased dough, sauce, and canned mushooms. Tastes like...More

The only reason why I give it 2 stars is because of the beautiful atmosphere and the fact that I could charge my phone. Everything else is a tourist trap -- avoid if possible! The setting is bright, modern and beautiful. My partner and I...More

There is nothing magnifico about this place. The brocheta was on stale bread. We all left it over. Almost 1 hr before we got our two pizzas and 1 salad. Salad ok. Pizza terrible. Canned mushrooms and frozen dough. I've had better frozen pizza than...More

We came from the botanic museum and walked by this good looking place that seemed nice to have a pizza. Well the worst came with the food, the so called pizza+drink menu only included a pair of different pizza choices. Anyway, the pizzas came and...More

I made this account in the hope that I will stop at least one person from going to this restaurant. The best way to describe this place is "agressive selling". At least if it whould be worth it, but the menues where oily, and the...More

Dear Mike H, thank you for your review and your critics which we usually accept humbly and try to make the most of them. We are certain of the ingredients we use (all bio) and of the dishes we serve, but at the same time...More

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
