The pizza here is fabulous! We sat in their outside area, which is away from the traffic of some of the larger plazas. The staff speak English very well. The menu like most in Florence is in Italian and English. We ordered the pizza with...More

The pizzas at La Bussola were delicious! Plenty of options, tasty & straight out of the wood fired Oven. The waiting staff were friendly & attentive, coping with our group & its varied needs. Highly recommended as a great find for dinner in Firenze.

We stayed around the corner from this lovely restaurant, had a fab meal and great service. Didn’t book but staff were accommodating. Sharing platter for 2 was huge, we probably didn’t need 2 courses after that but it was too good to pass up. Good...More

Pricey menu, but great food, friendly staff and good service. The Bistecca all Fiorentina was amazing, as was the seafood platter. Risotto was perfect.

We sent a message through yelp to see if they could seat us, we had a response within ten minutes. Michael was extremely welcoming. We ordered the artichoke salad from the weekly menu as our antipasti and they split the plates for us no problem....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
