I'll admit my review is jaded by the service; stopped in mid afternoon on a Sunday (~ 3:30pm) for a quick drink and a bite. Patio was half full, and when the server realized we weren't doing a full meal he started to suggest that they weren't going to seat us for such a small ticket. He acquiesced, but not... More

You can have a primi, secondi and water for 12 euros which is fantastic for a lunch special. I had the spaghetti with pesto (delicious!), and the pork steak with potatoes (also very tasty). My husband had another pasta of which we don't remember the name, and roast beef for a second. The roast beef was sliced very thin and... More

We wanted a table outside, but tables just don't turn like they do in the US. So we reluctantly took a table inside and they led us down the stairs to the crypt. What an awesome experience!!! The food was some of the best we had in Italy. Vegetarian friendly! The pasta was fresh light and perfect. The sauces were... More

My wife and I had dinner here. It was very good and the service was outstanding. I especially enjoyed the brunette mix to and the rebellion. Our server told us all about the crypt, so cool. My only problem was the lamb was overcooked.

This bustling place sits right on a busy pedestrian and car intersection in Oltrarno. It's busy, the tables are crowded and the service is decent. I'll be honest though, I found it difficult to put together a lunch choice. I suppose the choices were all classic from here, but I've been here a while and had a hard time at... More

Staying in Piazzale Michelangelo

Neighbourhood Profile
Piazzale Michelangelo
Just outside the ancient walls of Florence, Viale Michelangiolo starts. It is a winding road rimmed by wonderful poplars and holm oaks. The long ascent opens up to the most beautiful and famous panoramic viewpoint of Florence: Piazzale Michelangelo, where an elevated terrace offers visitors an incomparable and breathtaking view of the entire city from above. During good weather, Piazzale Michelangelo provides visitors with a serene space surrounded by the amazing landscape, better if accompanied by a fresh gelato from a local kiosk. During night, visitors will be dazzled by the warm lights of the capital of the Renaissance. Spend a second with the silent Romanesque beauty of the Basilica of San Miniato al Monte: the one that wishes good morning and good night to Florence!
