BBQ was recommended to us from a local and it was a good recommendation. We waited about 10 minutes for a table and enjoyed a glass of wine while we waited. The menu was only in Italian, but the staff were more than happy to assist us with our menu. The pasta was delicious, the service was great and we... More

We stayed at a B&B nearby and ate here twice. Both times we were very satisfied with our meals and with our very pleasant and helpful waiter Simone, with whom we had wonderful chats on both visits. He was happy to explain the menu in English to us. One of the best appetizers (recommended by Simone) and best tiramisus we... More

Visiting Florence we found this local neighborhood restaurant below our apartment. They did not offer an English menu, but out waitstaff was happy and patient with having to translate. As a starter we had bruschetta, shared 1 very large piece between 3 of us. It was good, though nothing exceptional. The spaghetti with sauce was a little spicy, but had... More

This place does one of the best steaks i have ever tried. $20 Euros gets you a HUGE fillet steak of sublime quality, its remarkable. This place is simple, no frills, service is a little rushed, but its charming and very nice. The place really nails the steak and to be fair, other things on the menu are not nearly... More

This restaurant was right around the corner from our apartment in Florence. The food was excellent and our waiter was absolutely delightful! Very amusing guy with a great sense of humor. He even made a point of catching up with us as we were leaving to thank us for coming in and wish us a good evening. Would definitely return... More

We came across this restaurant by accident as it is off the beaten track and were so pleased that we did. We found it to be an authentic Italian restaurant with a good range of food that was good value. The waitress was very patient since I don't speak Italian and translated the menu for us. Although the food was... More

Despite it being right on closing time, we were welcomed generously and politely. Our meals were served promptly and the food was wholesome and filling. The salad was the best I had while in Florence. Thank you.

We went to the Trattoria BBQ while we were staying in a nearby apartment in Florence, and our host there had recommended the restaurant. It is situated on a lovely piazza in Oltrarno. Our waiter did not seem to have a liking for English-speaking customers, or probably tourists in general. The evening started out with us being seated in a... More

After walking around for awhile we just chose to stop here and get a snack. We asked the waiter what his favorite appetizers were and ordered those. A pleasant surprise. Ended up being more expensive than I expected but was worth it. The fried bread with prosciutto and cream cheese was delicious!

Staying in Santo Spirito / San Frediano

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. Tourists and Florentines alike join up in the area between Santo Spirito and San Frediano, connecting the Tuscan soul to the international spirit permeating the city.
