Best dinner in Florence. Everything was good, including service. Good price, good portion. You can't go wrong with this restaurant. Try the Florence steak or the orecchiette. Tiramisu is also a must!

Nearby
Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
