This is a tough one. The food I had here was really very good...the wine too. Under those circumstances I usually find myself going back to places. However, the service here was so rude I chose not to do that. Not only did I feel...More

We ate sea fruit spaghetti and Fiorentine beef and it was deliciosss! The place is small and simple, but they cook pizza in front of you. The personnel is all italian. It’s a nice italia rustic experience!

Would stay away from La Ghiotta and never consider you did the wrong thing. Had high hopes as it was referred by a true local of Florence. Instead was met with rude and discriminatory service. To add to insult they served us raw pizza and...More

This restaurant is off the main touristic parts, but the walk is absolutely worth it. Great Fiorentina!

Excellent food with cheap price. Bright & busy place. One starter, three pasta, two mains with one liter of house wine at 41 euros. We loved the spaghetti with spicy tomato sauce and the pork loin

No outer terase, waitress place us at desk one meter from toilet entrance door. Factory lightning, at that room. Small window as you are at the ship. Food average price and average taste.

The food was excellent traditional Italian food with good service. The restaurant was quite cramped though so getting in and out of the table was difficult.

We are budget travellers so finding somewhere cheap and good quality to eat is high on our agenda and La Ghiotta fits the bill perfectly. I was hoping to find somewhere that does a cheap bowl of pasta and this it it. So to atmosphere....More

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.
