Both, the food and service were very good. We had home made pasta that has met our expectations. An excellent choice if you want a good meal for a decent price.

Reasonable prices, good food. My calzone was mammoth, and I could only eat half. The dough was excellent and the filling a good balance of ingredients/flavors. Service was good. Would definitely go here again, and recommend to others looking for a good, not too expensive meal.

Ordinary restaurant with good choice of local dishes. The staff is very vague about their recomendaciones. Wine list should be asked and vine is sold only by bottles.

We visited this restaurant based on the trip advisor reviews. It is a bit outside the main tourist streets, but still very close. I had the ossobuco, which is typical italian dish (Milanese). I didn't really enjoy as the meat was a bit too fatty for my taste. I had a side of potatoes, which were also nothing special. My... More

We tried Il Gato based on a friend’s recommendation and we were not disappointed! The staff was very friendly and our server was kind enough to make some suggestions. The homemade balsamic is fantastic as is the burrata appetizer with honey and pears. For an entrée we had osso bucco and the truffle ravioli, both of which were out of... More

From the creamy burata with honey and pears to the gnocchi and limone chicken - everything we had was on point! The staff... More

We returned after two years because it had always been one of our favourite restaurant in Florence. This time it was disappointing. Service was ok, but food was well below par. The pasta was cold and hard dry and the sauce was microwave hot. The pizza was undercooked and soggy. Nothing like what it used to be. It is a... More

This place was amazing! It was very quaint, the staff was wonderful and the food was just outstanding! I would recommend this to everyone (it was recommended to me). Get the 4 cheese gnocchi.

We wanted to get off the beaten path and touristy areas near the Duomo and we found this restaurant with the help of TripAdvisor. It certainly fit the bill. I trusted the friendly waiter enough to virtually throw my order into his hands. I told him I was in the mood for chicken and would like to start with spaghetti... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Duomo
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 as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
