Horrible service. We've waited 10 minutes for a menue and it took them another 30 minutes to bring me a cocktail

We visited the William for the first time in 7 years. This was a day trip from Rome. Having paid Rome prices for beer I fully expected to pay a premium in Florence. I was pleasantly surprised to find the prices have barely altered since...More

We dined there, and it was amazing. Very delicious tiramisu and nice interior, the cuisine is tasty and local, and prices are good. I ordered lasagna, and it was very soft and juicy, but I cant get enough of this tiramisu, it is the best.

We stumbled across The William quite by chance, needing a pit stop, we took a look at the menu, which was varied and reasonably priced, so we stayed. This was without doubt the correct decision, we were met by a waitress called Lisa, who was...More

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.

Historical local Florentine is in the heart of the center between square Santa Croce and National Library. Current management has changed the historical pub in a place less british and more Florentine focusing a lot on the meal quality. Elaborate dishes are one of the most genuine tuscan and italian traditons. The site is a product that gives satisfaction for the eyes and the taste.The histori
