    Terrace a lovely place to be on a hot summer’s night. The dish on the menu that we really wanted (wheat tart) was not available, although a replacement vegetarian dish was offered when asked.

    We had a hard time deciding what to order so went with the vegetarian tasting menu. We were a little underwhelmed with the appetizers but it quickly got better and by the end we were very happy and impressed with the meal. Their house made bread, bread sticks were excellent. The mushroom broth was salty for our taste. There was a white asparagus foam that was heaven. The creme brioche reimagined was likewise pure bliss. The service was also impeccable.

    Excellent service at a restaurant hotel near the train station Santa Maria Novella. They serve original Tuscan plates with a fancy twist such as roasted lamb with local artichoke and lamb innards. I highly recommend their pasta plates and lamb !

    We planned this lunch reservation due to good reviews and proximity to the train station as we wee taking advantage of a layover in Florence o our way to Siena. We were totally impressed with the quality of the food and the overall dining experience. Highly recommend!

    The beef short rib was over cooked, dry, and fatty. The pasta had zero flavor. The wait for service in between meals was insanely long. The children screaming at the top of their lungs in the plaza just along the plaza was an annoyance and made the setting very uncomfortable.

    Beautifully plated. Surprisingly bland. Pricing seemed off — too high given the overall quality and experience.

    Fantastic experience! Everything your would expect from a top-notch restaurant: stylish and cozy atmosphere, most attentitive service, and of course the dish. I cant just call it food as it was too heavenly tasty! We had the best dinner in Florence there.
