It is a book shop with lovely vegetarian food. Every thing sounded so delicious so we ordered a mix of three different things and I should say they were all yummy!

My husband and I dined at Brac during a recent trip to Florence. As a vegetarian, it can be difficult to find interesting options (most of our trip to Italy consisted of pasta with simple tomato/basil sauces, caprese salads, and pizza...not exactly interesting). When I heard about Brac, I knew I wanted to try it out. I easily made a... More

The food is wonderful and not a bad price either! I just can't overlook how rude they were to me. I came here by myself and I said "table for 1" and they were like "UNO??" "JUST ONE" "ONLY ONE" so SOLA???? like I was absolutely nuts for going out to eat alone. Then when I sit down (and keep... More

Nice diverse menu with so many options for main dishes and salads. Beautiful back dinning room. You can ask for 3 different entrees on the same plate and they will do 1/3, 1/3, 1/3. Great way to sample. Amazing Sicilian salad,,tangy pasta and grilled veggies. Nice selection of wines. YOU MUST make a reservation.

Modern and cozy place in Santa Croce! With a selection of more healthy style dishes, good wines and for a very fair price! Ordered the lasagna which was delicious and sparkling water..total 9 euros everything! Great service and you need to make a reservation in advance...always packed of people...also a great place for a coffee or to work/study!

I had found this place on Tripadvisor before we went to Italy and saved the location in my phone. We found ourselves nearby on the way to Piazzale Michelangelo and decided to stop in for lunch. It was a good thing I had the location in my phone, because we walked right past it. The only sign outside is a... More

It kind of feels like a coffee shop in Berkeley, CA when you walk in, with an italian flare. It's very local feeling, and it took us a while to figure out how to order a table for lunch, as the lady told us over and over that they were fully booked and she seemed at first rather undisposed to...

We were fortunate to find this restaurant as my daughter is Vegan and I am not, and I was hoping to find some great pasta. They did not disappoint. Vegan pasta with artichokes and spinach were fabulous, as well as the lasagna. It was so wonderful that we went back and ate there again. Great wines and delightful atmosphere.

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.
