Really worth to come and eat here. Way more tasty than in the restaurants which are closely located to main tourist attractions. Prices are reasonable as well.

We ate at this restaurant on April 20 with six people. We ordered three different pizzas, three different pastas, prosecco and red wine. Nicola was our server and he did a great job.

Mum and I called here one evening but didnt want a full meal. The staff were very accommodating and very pleasant. I had a plate of gorgonzola and a glass of Chianti Classico. It was perfect. The place was busy with a lovely atmosphere.

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
