Our appetizer was a sautéed rice patty topped with black truffle and truffle ice cream; walnuts in the melted ice cream just expanded the flavor profile. This dish was amazing. For the main course we ate steak Florentine and roasted potatoes. The steak was perfectly...More

Our concierge suggested this restaurant and we tried it. The antipasti and pasta I had were both very good. My main was duck which was tasty but a bit dry. The highlight was the sommelier (I am pretty sure he was the boss too) having...More

We enjoyed multiple courses with matching wines. The meats were terrific. They understand cheeses and match them perfectly. Prices were reasonable for what was delivered. Would return.

We decided to go here for a Birthday meal after reading the great reviews. However, the experience was very disappointing. The food was good but certainly nothing amazing. Service, well that was more or less non-existent apart from putting the plates on the table without...More

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
