Traditional cuisine with a refined touch. Whatever came to the table was a delight. The 1,8kg Firoentina was a bit cold and we sent it back for re-heating.

We enjoyed our very Tuscan meal at Olio. The service was unobtrusive yet attentive. They served an excellent Steak Florentine and we shared a superb pasta with porcini mushrooms.

Food was just Ok. For this price point, I want more than Ok. Sea bass Ravioli was fishy. Fresh fish isn't fishy. Gnocchi was not up to par...had better in Tuscany. Good wine selection though.

Had lunch here (recommend for lunch). Its on the Piti Palace side of the Arno. They make their own pasta and do it well. Also some excellent cold cuts. Very fresh food overall. Highly recommend!

With enjoyed a birthday lunch, with an array of different dishes. All were top quality, and matched with a good wine. Our servers were very helpful and pleasant. All in all, a great experience, though a little pricey.

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great
company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo
Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the
staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and
they cannot help but stare at the architectural
masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria
