This was the first place we went after landing in Florence, and we came at an off-hour. It was after the lunch rush, but thankfully - we were still able to enjoy the lunch menu. We got the lasagna and a baked caprese dish with...More

Giovanni’s was always on the mouths of those speaking about the Florentine food scene. After several visits to the city we finally made our way to the little trattoria on oltrarno. To say that we were disappointed would be a little much, but Giovanni isn’t...More

We're so happy we found Trattoria Giovanni on our recent trip. The food was really good and the service was even better. Giovanni was an excellent host. Try the Wild Boar and Polenta or Balsamic Steak.

This place was seriously amazing. The ambiance is adorable and the food was incredible. Started with the tomato soup for the table which is an absolute must! It's more like a bruschetta then a soup and had asking garlic and finely crumbled bread crumbs. I...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
