  • Upstairs eateries make this the BEST place to eat a range of quite inexpensive different foods if you don't want to spend ages in a restaurant. Fantastic freshly made pizzas and fresh pasta dishes from €7. Open all day and evening. Very busy at lunchtime, quieter at dinner. Chose from different outlets, grab a seat and drinks are served to the table.
  • Would recommend whenever you are in Florence! Very stylish! Collective dining! Great choice of local food and wine! Just you need to go upstairs! :)
