A wonderful experience at this trattoria four years before had us excited to return to enjoy a dinner again, but we were sadly disappointed. Anticipating another delicious local meal and friendly service, we made reservations more than two months in advance for 8:30 p.m. on New Year's Eve. Several weeks before our arrival, we were emailed that they had overlooked... More

I have been going to this restaurant regularly over recent years and it never fails to come up to standard. Not a moment's hesitation when we arranged a dinner for 40 there recently and guests all made very positive comments about the food and atmosphere. Expect a very warm welcome from the Civale family.

It was a very best Fiorentina steak of 4 restraunts in Florence. We asked to bring us homemade local wine and it was perfect. Nice place, good service, tasty meal and reasonable price.

Restaurant open from 7:15 for dinner until 22:30. Push the door hard as we waited outside even though they were open. Check which day it is open. If you arrive late you may need a booking as it becomes very busy. We had the Florence steak (for 2) and the pork steak with spinach. The steak was amazing and the... More

The food is gorgeous, typical Tuscan kitchen. We found this small, but pleasant restaurant close to our hotel in Santo Spirito. The food was so good that we went back four times, always ordering different plates, all them just delicious. Owners are lovable and always present at the tables. I know, we are talking about food, but I must comment... More

No idea how this gets good reviews. We were in florence three weeks eating out once or twice a day and this was the standout bad meal. Lunch. Arancini balls were frozen in the centre, risotto ai porcini was as solid as a rock - certainly not made to order. Pasta was OK. Big group of young students were being... More

Greetings miss I remember her and her daughter (I think), I'm sorry that you have eaten so badly by us as we work hard 12 hours a day because this does not happen. I regret having made it to sit in the last available table near the door, and apparently having served the food that was not to his liking,... More

Very traditional Florence restaurant away from the tourist spots. Wonderful food, wine, local atmosphere. Owner is hands on and ensures that everything is perfect. Very reasonable prices. In my opinion, some of the best food we have had in Italy. A must see if you enjoy off-the-beaten path restaurants

This hidden gem is across the river from the Westin in a less touristy, more residential area of the city. It was personally recommended to us by Lorenzo, the manager at the Hotel Crocini where we stayed. The old school charm of the restaurant and genuine hospitality of the owner immediately impressed us. But what blew us away was the... More

My bf and I ate here tonight. Apart from not having 3 of things we wanted from looking at photos other people had posted on trip advisor, we finally got some food we were happy with. I had beef ravioli and shared a platter. My other half had truffle pasta which was simple and delicious. Definitely try the tiramisu. Wasn't... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour. Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and they cannot help but stare at the architectural masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria delle Carmine churches.
