We ordered two pizzas, margarita was not too terrible, although the tomato sauce tasted like ketchup and the pizza crust was solid and looked and tasted like a stale bread, but overall, it was edible. The other one had a tuscan ham, but the ham...More

Had two pizzas here and they tasted fairly good for the value. Service is a bit slow but to be expected in a tourist area.

Located on the Pizza Della Republica, this restaurant gets lots of footfall. They have staff out the front enticing you in with special offers (ours was 10% off for a family - we also heard free drinks being offered). The menu is typical Italian fare...More

We were treated very poorly here. Our order was "lost" for over an hour. The title of this review sums up the response we received.

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

Donnini 1894 has been in the Piazza della Repubblica, in the historic centre of Florence, since 1894. Once a literary café, now an exclusive restaurant, Donnini has always known how to change with the needs of the city. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a delicious breakfast, lunch with a view, an aperitif in the evening or a cocktail after dinner.
