A little jet-lagged after a 25 hr flight this was the first meal for our family of 4 in Florence. The Osteria Santo Spirito is less than 50 metres from our apartment and had an inexpensive 'Day Menu', so we decided to sit and chill before an early night. Ushered outside to the seating area by a 40-something waitress we... More

I was recommended by a friend of mine to come here in my Italy vacations. Well, I didn't get disappointed! The first day I arrived and tried to get a table, but the hostess told me it was only for people with reservation. She was kind of rude, but as I was really in to try the plates, because my... More

We have visited Florence a lot of times. The first time was for an Oracle convention in 1994. I was with a group of spouses who were taken on a tour which included a lunch stop at Osteria Santo Spirito. Since then we have always come back. This time we ordered risotto with Zucchini, rabbit cacciatore, and gnocchi. Everyone liked... More

Lovely dinner. Recommended by a niece who had done a term in Italy. We sat outside and it was a very nice setting. The gnocci was wonderful -- in fact, everyone loved their food. The wine was the best we had. The servers were very friendly. We went without a reservation but arrived early. It was very busy!!

My friend and I are not blown away from this restaurant. We got seated fairly quick which was nice. The outside tables are not in the sun so it gets chilly in the shade. My friend got served a dirty wine glass and i got served a dirty drinking glass too. The pasta dish was great and very tasty. They... More

If you come here and get anything but the gnocchi gratinati al formaggi you are making a mistake! Potentially the best dish I had in all of Florence. If you travel with a big group be prepared to wait to be seated.

If you want to taste amazing Italian food - just go here. Get away from the touristy places and enjoy the amazing flavours. How they make such simple dishes taste so good is beyond me. We loved the garlic and chilli oil spaghetti, the truffle oil gnocchi, the lasagne and the beef stew. We've been twice so far and will... More

Three of us had dinner out on the terrace. When we called they told us there were no tables until 10 but we walked past the place asked and were told we could be seated at 845. Perfect. Great food, huge portions and great service. There is a wide range of local food and some specials. I had a very... More

This is a great little osteria in a quirky piazza in the oltrano area. The food is delish, the service is good and friendly. Good value, nothing fancy, just good, fresh, traditional Tuscan food.

We went there by mistake and then we went back since we had some of the best pastas ever. The service is not great but I would go back for that pasta (we tried them all)
