Best gnocchetti gratinati I've ever had! Be sure to be hungry as the portions are huge! The restaurant can be fairly full, so do not leave out of impatience, the food will be worth your wait!

Unfortunately I cannot review the food we came to sample. The staff were so rude and disinterested in our patronage that we left within minutes of arriving. Staff members refused to make eye contact or assist us with adding an additional place setting for our family of 5. This type of service is both unprofessional and unacceptable. Fortunately, we were... More

I rarely submit a negative review, however after what my husband and I experienced and witnessed this evening (Sunday, January 8) I feel lead to contribute. I have a background in food handling/preparation, yet I've never in my life sent back a dish! We arrived at Osteria Santo Spirito and noticed the music was very load. Not music that you'd... More

Even if this restaurant is a bit off the touristic path, it's almost always full, so you may want to make a reservation. We shared our table with another tourist -- it was the only way to eat there without a reservation. We had the rabbit, the ribolita and the beef stew -- all of it great. The waiter recommended...

We loved this restaurant!! The pasta was amazing, there was delicious free bread brought right to us, and the price was just what we wanted. We sat outside, which was delightful. The house wine is cheap and enjoyable. Definitely recommend for a great, inexpensive meal in Florence

This restaurant has great service and beautiful food. We are there 2 nights in a row and we highly recommend this restaurant in Florence. The aromas will get you in and the taste will want you to return. We wait to come back, it had been 5 years but still so consistent. Thank you.

I was directed to this restaurant when I asked a local wine shop owner for his recommendation for a place to eat lunch. Without hesitation he sent me here, and I was not disappointed. I was seated inside immediately (thankfully, given the cold that day), and was brought the customary bread and olive dip. My order (the sliced duck breast... More

I have never felt like a second class citizen before, however that is how I felt at this restaurant. We arrived and asked for a table for 4 at 6:00pm which they advised us that we would have to sit outside which was fine. But every other person who spoke Italian was ok to sit inside. We had to wait... More

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour. Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and they cannot help but stare at the architectural masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria delle Carmine churches. Tourists and Florentines alike join up in the area between Santo Spirito and San Frediano, connecting the Tuscan soul to the international spirit permeating the city.
