This is not a bad restaurant by any stretch but we found, despite a delightful atmosphere, and professional (albeit "woody") service, the Chiananina Steak for two remains an overated experience. To put some perspective into the picture, we are certainly spoilt when it come to...More

Following the suggestion of my hotel concierge, we went to this place and we were not disappointed. A little pricey, but the steak and the wine were delicious. This restaurant is central located, only few blocks from our hotel and minutes from the main church

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
