I went there for a quick meal and despite being packed with tables of 4-8 they were able to seat me quickly at a two top. Had the caprese salad followed by the truffle tortellini, however, the table next to me had a meat platter that I was literally drooling over. Come to this place with friends and enjoy the... More

Arriving late into Florence, we were recommended this nearby place by the hotel concierge. We received a warm welcome into the restaurant seemingly populated entirely by locals, and were served a sublime meal that felt home cooked with pride and expertise. Wonderful experience of perfect carpaccio, al dente pasta and tasty Italian sausages across the courses. Warmly recommended.

I have been there with my students for 6 evenings just this month. It's one of the best restaurant for the welcoming, the food, the products I ever been in Italy. Everything was good and the portions perfect. Situated in the center and easy to find. I can only say that if you go to Florence you must go there!!!!!

Made a 7pm weekday reservation for two at this cosy restaurant just off Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. Restaurant was sparsely populated at 7, but packed to the gills by 8, so we were glad we made the reservation. Service was prompt and friendly, and my Cotolette di agnello alla griglia con patate was tasty and ample. Indeed, portions are... More

Love this place. Typical Tuscan food. Well prepared and fresh. House wine is from Fisole and tasty. Service is attentive and friendly. Worth the stop.

This place was full at lunch time so we had to come back in the evening ... The white truffle is a must try there. You smell it as soon as you enter the restaurant! Service and waiters are friendly.

This place was practically empty when we visited for dinner, and the emptiness seemed starker given that the room was brightly, almost fluorescently lit and characterless. This would all have been forgivable if the food was stellar or even good. Sadly that wasn't the case. Spaghetti alla amatriciana was respectable, but the secondi we had were really really disappointing. We... More

We decided to try this restaurant after it was recommended by our hotel and after reading reviews. We should have realized when no one else was in the restaurant at 7:00 pm that it was not a good choice. The water carafe was dirty on the outside, the ice we requested had foreign objects, a bread basket was placed on... More

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
