My boyfriend and I just ate here and because we are so angry and disappointed at the same time, we are writing it while we are still at the restaurant. First, the food was absolutely horrible, tasteless and the portions were very very small, if...More

We found this place by just walking past and decided to stop and eat. We were a big group of 9, so they accommodated us on 2 tables inside. We had a mix of pizzas and pasta dishes and all meals were pretty good. Not...More

Found this place by accident, but glad we did. The staff were honest ("don't sit outside, it's awful"!) and very funny. The food arrived incredibly quickly and every one of our meals was great. Good prices and good wine

I've been here over a dozen times now, and the food, service, and atmosphere are consistently excellent. I come to Florence often, and Tre Merli is a staple! Inexpensive and delicious!!!

This restaurant had two outdoor areas, one in a quieter street which was nice. The service was friendly and efficient. The food was good hearty fare. My partner had the wild boar and I the grilled salmon. Both were tasty and cooked well. I didn't...More

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
