Super restaurant. we ate here three times during our 9 days in Florence. A very warm welcome is given by the friendly staff who showed their appreciation for our appreciation of their restaurant. Excellent traditional Italian food and wine at very realistic prices. Heartily recommended!...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

Tried multiple kinds of pasta off of their huge menu, each dish was among the best that I've ever had. The homemade balsamic vinegar that they give you with bread was also fantastic. Staff was friendly, and prices quite reasonable (7-9 euro per pasta dish)....More

The homemade noodles with four cheese and truffles is by far the best meal. The staff is so friendly. I ate here almost every week during my four month stay in Florence. My favorite dinner location in Florence, Italy.

This place was close to the place we were staying so we decided to try it based on the TripAdvisor reviews. So glad we did. We had a great family dinner. Everything was delicious and reasonably priced. Definitely would go back.

This was one of my favorite dinner spots in Florence. The bread, oil, and balsamic is to die for! Their lasagna, gnocchi, and pizza are incredible as well. I crave their lasagna bolognese whenever I'm away from Florence. Underrated for how good the food is...More

Went by here looking for a decent lunch one day. We thought it was really good. Most of us had Pizza or a Calzone. They were huge! Water and Bread and it was 90 Euro for 6 of us. Food was great. Really can't beat...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.
