Me and my daughter visited Il Contadino for dinner and we were really happy with this choice. The restaurant is a very family friendly place, the food is amazing, good price and excelente attendance. The gnocchi with blue cheese was unforgettable!

A genuine local eatery where you will get a friendly welcome, fast service and great value food. Proper seasonal Italian menu with frequently changing daily specials on the board. Low prices for two or three courses with bread and some drinks included. Clientele includes local workers and few tourists but everyone is made to feel welcome. Busy and lots of... More

Visited at lunchtime without a reservation and seated immediately, although this proved to be quite fortunate with multiple groups turned away during our meal. Cheap semi-set menu (main and side for 10 euro, 12 with wine). Certainly worth the trip.

Recommended by our hotel staff. A good choice! The food was very good at a moderate price. I normally don't eat meat, but tried the wild boar on a dare. It was yummy!

Step into this small neighborhood restaurant where the tourists are limited and the food is plentiful. The restaurant offers a fix price (around 12-13 euros) for a primi (pasta/soup), secondi (meats) and a side dish. I tried the rabbit because a friend recommended it, which was good but less meaty than I expected. Good price on wine as well.

We (wife, daughter and I) rented an apartment on Via Palazzuolo in Florence Italy close to the Santa Maria Novella train station. After a long flight from the US to Rome and a train ride to Florence, we were tired and looking for an early dinner. Lucky for us Trattoria Il Contadino was just across the street. Really great food... More

I am really sad to read some negative reviews here because this place is not about flattering your ego but feeding you. If you appreciate real food and people, do try but if the lighting, decor and seating is more important to you, you won't get it. We had the best meal of our stay so far: soup, rabbit and... More

Very glad we waited the 10 minutes at the door. The food was great, house wine was better than many we've tasted and the atmosphere was buzzing. Be sure to check out the daily menu outside as it changes from day to day.

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighbourhood Profile
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 area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
