I went there having high hopes for their pasta dishes. I tried the ravioli with the nut sauce. It was tasty but it was too heavy and was drawn to the thick sauce. I guess it needed some acidity to liven up a little. I...More

From the moment we arrived the staff didn't pay attention on us. We had to wait to seat even though there were tables available. Antipasti was dreadful, not authentic at all. Literally food that you can find at any jar in a supermarket directly to...More

We hadn't been to Il Gatto E la Volpe for several years. It had been one of our favorites when we last spent a summer in Florence and had an apartment nearby. I wandered in and it felt the same, yet somehow different. It had...More

My wife and I visited the restaurants for a Saturday evening dinner. The beer was cold, the food was tasty and a good value, the service was good. I had the carbonara, she the bolognese. Both were very good. I would highly recommend coming here....More

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

Hi Brittania, I know that they sell the vinegar for 15 Euro per bottle. It is absolutely delicious. Hope you get the chance to go there again and buy a bottle.
