If you would like an authentic Italian meal with an inviting atmosphere then this is your place. Handwritten menus because the menu is based off of the fresh meats and vegetables purchased at the market across the street on a daily basis. Gilda is the...More

We were attracted by the handwritten Menu which changed every day depending upon what was available in the local Market(s). A short list, plus lots of help in choosing dishes, ensured that the meals were fresh and enjoyable. A great combination - we went back...More

the place did not blow me away. The food was ok, but certainly not memorable, the portions quite small. One can do much better in Florence for less money

Gilda Bistrot was highly recommended by a friend of mine. It's almost hidden away in outskirts in the market but seemed to be popular. The owner seemed nice and the food was delicious-I had tagliatelle with mushroom

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.
