The gnochetta was to die for. Melt in your mouth. The service was fine. Other people were ordering the steak and it looked very good

Make reservations. Small, family restaurant. Try the tripe. Delicious! We had a wonderful meal among the locals. Treated like family. Cash only. Loved it and will return on next trip to Firenze.

Despite the fact of being rush hour during lunchtime the people of this restaurant did not even think of receiving us in a friendly way. Glasses were smashed on the table like the menu's. No smile, no ''here you go'', nothing. The most horrible thing...More

Fast paced place, mainly locals who come in for lunch. Seemingly simple dishes, but really tasty and great value for money. Try the typical Florentine lampredotto!

I took note of this place prior to my trip to Florence and was pleasantly surprised when our private tour guide recommended this restaurant. Four women run this restaurant in amazing precision. They cook in the open in the front of the restaurant so you...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
