Description: RESTAURANT Nestled in a cozy and comfortable atmosphere in the heart of Florence, you will be served delicious, savory dishes that spring from our chef's creativity and will accompany you through a romantic and unique evening. A selection of the finest wines and the attention paid to each and every detail make our restaurant one of the most pleasant venues in Florence. Dishes are prepared using only the best available foods of the season. Particular attention is devoted to the presentation of every dish and to the intriguing combinations of flavors and aromas. A carefully selected wine will blend perfectly with the taste sensations created by our chefs. OSTERIA WINE HOUSE Soft light and the delicate scent of wild fennel wafting from the cellar create an atmosphere of pleasant repose for dinner at our enoteca-osteria (typical local restaurant), where traditional Tuscan cuisine based on typical salami, canapes and cheese, soups and pasta dishes, as well as the famous Florentine T-bone steak are the perfect accompaniment to a glass of good wine. PIZZERIA CANTINETTA where you can savor pizza and other items fresh from the oven accompanied by a glass of excellent wine, accurately selected by our sommeliers

We try to avoid all the tourist traps, but the hotel concierge recommended this restaurant for a typical Florentine pizza. This is the worst restaurant experience in our 4 day trip to Florence, the Tuscan Starters were a disgrace one cannellini bean on a small piece of bread and some chopped tomato, chicken liver but it was something that you would get in a very basic café, the pizza had an a slither of topping, it was terrible, we didn't finish and left. Would not recommend, it was terrible. We told the waitress and she just shrugged her shoulders, another tourist trapped in Florence!

The food was good but quite expensive and it lacked atmosphere as it was very quiet the night we were there. Staff were attentive

Recommended by our Hotel, Relais Santa Croce, we visited with friends. Service from Lorenzo was spot on as were his suggestions for food and wine. While my wife and I shared a delicious chicken liver entree, our friends both had the tomato soup, more like a risotto. We also had meat stuffed tomatoes as our mains with an inexpensive Chardonnay before trying a local Pinot Grigio which in fact was corked - graciously withdrawn and replaced. Both the food preparation and its delivery were expertly managed in a warm and welcoming environment.
