To be honest, I think we made a mistake when choosing to have lunch here. For the same or even less price you might have a better meal.. I ordered baked potatoes, apart from the fact that they were cold, I could taste that the had been re heated... no good quality. I was really annoyed because you don't expect... More

We had a very average meal here on our first night, the next day we found much better restaurants nearby.

Absolutely shocking meal and service. Way over the top on price. Stale bread, well below average pasta, surly ignorant waiters, had to ask for everything, oil, Parmesan, pepper, the list goes on. More interested in fleecing the Japanese than any other customer. Then they got quite annoyed when I wouldn't give them a tip. Avoid at all costs.

We stopped here to escape the rain after walking around the Piazza della Signoria. We sat at a table outside with heaters. The waiters were friendly. We just got wine and beer and a cheese plate. The cheese plate was good but nothing special and it was pretty expensive for what we got. The cover charge for sitting was also... More

Please please do not waste your time eating here. We made the mistake of not reading reviews first. There are so many amazing restaurants in Florence, dont make the mistake of eating here. If this restaurant was in Ohio, USA I would have given it 3.5 stars.

Restaurant is right on the square so is busy with lots of touts outside trying to get you in (you cant even read the menu without being pounced on) and really not worth a visit. It was the worst but most expensive meal of the trip and the staff were not very polite. The pasta was bland and overpriced and... More

Food was sub par but the service...do not go! The service was absolutely terrible. We never got bread, waiter never came back to check after our initial order (we wanted dessert), and had to ask for the check five times and finally just followed the guys until he brought it. It wasn't even that crowded so that's not even an... More

We had a lovely lunch in the patio in the middle of the square and the food was very good and the service efficient. But... it is a tourist trap, 5 euro for a bottle of water no tap water given, 20 euro for a Nice but average 375ml bottle of red and 15% cover charge and just to rub... More

I came here with a friend for a late lunch. The waiter was attentive and the wifi code was good. It's a great place to sit outside for a while and people watch. The food portions are pretty big and the food is delicious. The inside bathroom is also very nice so it's a great place for a quick pit... More

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
