Italian Restaurant
“With great authentic food with a modern twist, fine atmosphere, wide selection of wines and good value this is one of our favorites. It’s always busy so make sure you reserve a table. You can have a glass of wine and a small plate at the informal “Santino” next door, while you wait for your table.”

Dessert Shop

  • 37 locals recommend
Café
“This Cafè is just outside the circle of boulevards that enclose the old city, a few meters from Piazza Beccaria. Here you will find few tourists and many Florentines, who leave the office or are just waiting to spend the night out, so they stop for a tasty appetizer (again, given the abundance of food, it is more of an apericena). At a cost of 8 Euros (if you take a soft drink, a euro less) you can delight your taste buds with the cold cuts, small sandwiches, fresh cut cheeses and even vegetable dishes, which change from time to time. The seating is limited inside, but there is also a comfortable outdoor gazebo.”
