The homemade noodles with four cheese and truffles is by far the best meal. The staff is so friendly. I ate here almost every week during my four month stay in Florence. My favorite dinner location in Florence, Italy.

This place was close to the place we were staying so we decided to try it based on the TripAdvisor reviews. So glad we did. We had a great family dinner. Everything was delicious and reasonably priced. Definitely would go back.

This was one of my favorite dinner spots in Florence. The bread, oil, and balsamic is to die for! Their lasagna, gnocchi, and pizza are incredible as well. I crave their lasagna bolognese whenever I'm away from Florence. Underrated for how good the food is...More

Was last here in 2005 and had good memories. Fabulous room with vaulted stone ceiling. Ordered the lamb chops and mixed vegetables- feeling in need of some after so many pizzas. Vegetables consisted of a mountain of (warm) roasted potatoes & one leaf of radicchio....More

I lived in Florence years ago, and this place was a favorite - came back for a visit with family this weekend, and remembered why! This simple osteria is right in the middle of downtown Florence and offers simple, but genuine and awesome food with...More

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

Hi, I love your homemade balsamic vinegar! Would I be able to purchase it?

Hi Brittania, I know that they sell the vinegar for 15 Euro per bottle. It is absolutely delicious. Hope you get the chance to go there again and buy a bottle.
