We wandered in to this great place looking to escape all the tourist crowds near the Ponte Vecchio and were more than pleasantly surprised. Great meat and cheese platter with fantastic chicken liver spread and mama's pepper jam is most excellent. Highly recommended for a yummy lunch. The signs are just there for entertainment... the people running the place were... More

At the recommendation of a local leather merchant, we tried this hidden gem. Very hard to find because Apple maps wouldn't locate it. No reservations. Only 6 tables. Small, reasonably priced menu. Hospitable owner/chef. Ask for Francesca. Definitely give it a try. Anything with wild boar is great. Small selection but very reasonable prices on wine menu.

A bit hit and miss. Couple of good dishes and others which were not up to standard. Seems like the sort of place which is there for the locals but tolerates tourists if they walk in by mistake. The passive aggressive signs make it clear that tourists really are not wanted, which is fine. Some may find them amusing, others... More

We travel to Florence for two to three months a year - we love it here. One day, about three years ago, we were on a little back Street, hungry and tired when we came across Pongie's. It is very small, but so BIG on good quality food. And VERY reasonable on price. So guess what? We eat here every... More

I stop here every time I pass by Firenze. Friendly environment, authentic genuine tuscan food and fair prices. Stuffed wild bore is a must!

While studying abroad last spring, my roommate and I stumbled upon Pangie's while determinedly trying to find a non-touristy restaurant. Pangie's did not disappoint, and we were sad we hadn't found it sooner! Our meal and wine were delicious and the service was great, our waiter was very patient with our broken Italian. We were also the only non-Italians in... More

A gem that a friend advised and we fell in love with the place and its owners who are charming people. It is a place where local people come, you can tell there are "usuals". The food is great, homemade, authentic. We were served with attention and care . The place is small and cosy. The decoration is rich and... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
