Reviewed yesterday NEW

The service is excellent, the location soothing, the outlook is groomed gardens & parkland, a pianist outside, and the food very, very good. But it's certainly not cheap...

It was not the food which impressed me the most....Food was good but not excellent. The atmosphere though is magnificent, an unrivalled spot in the heart of Florence. Service was excellent, classy but not too formal.

We had a recommendation to this restaurant from a chef and it did not disappoint. We arrived without reservations however they were very accommodating. We had the ravioli and the Chateaubriand which was amazing! The waiters and sommelier were also impressive which is why we will return on our three week trip to Florence.

The tasting menu was a real treat. Sommelier Marcos knew how to pair the food with the right wine. Edoardo... More

We had a very nice anniversary dinner here. The staff are excellent and very friendly. The food was delicious, but very expensive. However, it is a great place for a special occasion or if you have plenty of cash to splash! We also enjoyed a great G&T in the bar afterwards.

They accommodated us by giving my wife the vegetarian tasting menu and I had the regular tasting menu. Both were paired with wines. The meal was exquisite and a perfect way to celebrate our anniversary.

An oasis of elegance, refinment and pleasure, inside the most beautiful hotel in Florence. Outstanding food, creative and perfectly executed. Great products, flawless service. Wine list to make any addict happy. Stunning terrace and garden for the beautiful days. Even the price is justified. Dress accordingly.

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence, surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking students provides the tranquil surroundings for the elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read the daily newspaper. Home to several universities, including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A bridge connecting the modern cultural activity of Florence to its classic art, represented by the everlasting magnificence of the original David, resonates as a symbol of Florence and of Italy as a whole. Get lost in a Neoclassic world, a journey back in time through historic buildings like Spedale degli Innocenti (Hospital of the Innocents), San Marco church, Basilica della Santissima Annunziata, and natural jewels like the Botanical Gardens.
