the Bisteca was the best I have had all around the world. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was equally great

Booked in advanced and it did not disappoint. Highlight was the Florentine steak, which I rate as best steak I’ve eaten. Also tried the wild boar pasta which was very good. Will definitely come back - even just for the steak.

Sorely disappointed by the 90 euro steak for two. Sure, it's massive, but it's gristly and lacks flavor. Save your money. This was one of the most disappointing meals I've had in a while.

Stopped in tonight since it was next to our hotel and our Tuscany car tour driver recommended it. What a disappointment. The wine recommended to my mother was undrinkable. The onion soup lacked any depth of flavor. However, the real tragedy was the steak. It...More

I went there twice, first time for lunch with my mum, she had the spaghetti pesto, I had the gnocchi melanzana, both tasted fresh and like it was cooked by the most loving Italian mamma. Unfortunately the staff was not as caring. A lot of...More

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
