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 !

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.
Restaurant
Dear Peter B.,
Santa Maria Novella is one of the most beautiful and spacious squares in Florence and, at times, during warm summer evenings, the Piazza is filled with laughter as locals and tourists rest on the benches and enjoy the beauty of the Chathedral’s facade. Of course we are sorry if during the evening you spent with us you might have encountered a particularly lively situation and most of all if this has made you uncomfortable. As for the meal, our dishes are made expressly, the cooking methods are quite particular and may require a little bit more time, we are sorry that you have not appreciated it’s results.
Best regards,
Filippo Burroni, General Manager

Beautifully plated. Surprisingly bland. Pricing seemed off — too high given the overall quality and experience.
Restaurant
first of all, thank you for having chosen our Restaurant.
I am very sorry you was not fully satisfied of your dinner. I regard your opinion concerning our dishes but I cannot comply with your comment about our price, they are overall average, considering the quality of products we use, the service we provide and the location of the Restaurant.
Best regards,

Filippo Burroni, General Manager

Restaurant
Gentilissima Rosella M.,
nel ringraziarla per la sua recensione colgo l'occasione per ricordare ai nostri comuni lettori che a pranzo il ristorante serve un menu' piu' semplice e veloce, senza pero' allontanarsi dai "dogmi" della nostra cucina ovvero prodotti stagionali e di qualità.
Buon Anno,
