Recommended by our hotel concierge following a late evening arrival. Close to the Ponte Vecchio along a hidden back street, without the tip we probably would never have tried it. Thankfully we did - and it was so good we went back a few nights later with some friends. Decor is vibrant and welcoming, and the service very good. Staff... More

Poor value for money and poor quality food. We made a special effort to go there because the restaurant looked so inviting. In reality my beef was so tough and full of gristle it was impossibe to cut or chew. Left almost all of it, the potatoes were hard too yet it was more expensive than any other meal we... More

We were staying at a hotel on the same street, so we went pass that little place a few times and got curios. We decided to get dinner there one night and it was worth it. Lovely staff and nice welcoming atmosphere. The food is really nice. We ordered a plate of cheese and cold cuts that was wonderful for... More

Got the antipasti plate (meat and cheese) as well as the hot mozzarella wrapped in ham and they were delicious!!! Great place for a very reasonably priced, delicious meal. Service was timely and very friendly.

Sadly was recommended by a nice hotel. Wine was good but service wasn't great to start with ... and then we waited & we waited & waited for almost one and a half hours and still had not received our pasta dishes after the starter. We started looking frustrated and were assured that they were on way but by that... More

Our hotel suggested we might like this restaurant. It is much like a wine bar. A wonderful selection of wines. We had an appetizer and then pasta. We could watch the chefs get the cheeses and meats from the cooler in the restaurant. Very professionally done. All very good. The desserts looked good but we couldn't eat another bite. It... More

Best cheese and wine place we have found even after returning after 6 years and still as good. Wine is perfection too. Really cute little place down a back Kane. It's worth looking for

We had a delightful dinner, consisting of a shared cheese plate entrée, for mains - wild boar and ravioli. The food was superb. The wine was on the expensive side, with the wine bottles on display, which is an excellent idea. Price tags are affixed to each bottle. Unfortunately, the price shown is the take away price - to enjoy... More

A 2 minute walking distance from Hotel Gallery in Ponte Vecchio, this restaurant has a truffle menu as well. The few things vegetarian that we ate were extremely good. They also sell good wine. Transport it if you wish. A must go to Cafe

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
