We stayed in the hotel Dvanzati, right across the street, but unfortunately, didn't seem to get by here until the last day or so. Wait staff is great and the food is amazing. You have to go here.

We just had a late dinner at La Bussola and loved it! The restaurant is very busy and the constant hassle and loud noise make you aware that you're in a true Italian restaurant. I tend to prefer busy restaurants as I want to socialize...More

Liked the location, wine, meat dishes and very friendly service! Did not find anything I disliked. Pizzas looked great too and you can even buy bottles of wine from a huge list (pay a bit more though).

We ended up coming here twice during our three day stay in Florence. Stumbled upon it during an evening wander around town and the food was so good we decided to go back. Service also great and generally excellent atmosphere. It's clearly popular with both...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
