Great Italian lunch: Restaurant Convivium (10. September 2016)

If you want to have late lunch it is not always that easy to find something where you can still get a proper meal around 2pm. Luckily, we encountered a place where this was still possible. The restaurant was very welcoming and seated us at a nice table. Shortly after being seated we received a […]

Very touristic place with dull food: Caffé Mercanti (10. September 2016)

The moment when you end up in the most touristic place ever – and still kind of wonder why the food you’ve ordered tastes like absolutely nothing. Well, if you are starving and are ready to pay way more than you normally would be ready to pay, the Caffé Mercanti is the place to go. […]

Fancy Italian restaurant – but a bit remote: Restaurant Da Vic (9. September 2016)

Fancy Italian restaurant – but a bit remote: Restaurant Da Vic (9. September 2016)

If you want a perfect starter for a relaxing and nice dinner, the “zucchini flowers filled with ricotta cheese” (EUR 16.00) are definitely the right choice. The waiter made it clear that half a portion was absolutely sufficient and while that is true to the degree that you will definitely have too much to eat […]

Getting the real Italian sweets before leaving: Caffè Astra al Duomo (24. April 2016)

If you are close to Florence’s duomo and need a short break because of the horrible weather – the Caffè Astra al Duomo is the perfect place to do a quick stop to enjoy a “double espresso” (EUR 2.00) and a “Cannoli” (EUR 2.30). The place is definitely simple and not really some place you […]

Where old Italian men eat their lunch: Fiaschetteria Osteria Nuvoli (24. April 2016)

Where old Italian men eat their lunch: Fiaschetteria Osteria Nuvoli (24. April 2016)

Again recommended by a local, we realized immediately why you do not see any tourists coming here. When approaching this very tiny bar which serves food, there were four old men sitting on small wooden chairs right in front of the place drinking a glass of red wine loudly discussing. Now, they were sitting in […]

Flexible chef and good kitchen at 1-starred La Bottega del Buon Caffè (23. April 2016)

Flexible chef and good kitchen at 1-starred La Bottega del Buon Caffè (23. April 2016)

Usually, you can order the menu by table only. We were a party of four and only two of us wanted to have the menu – so despite the “rule”, we inquired if it was possible for one to have a vegetarian menu and for the other one to just have two courses. And despite […]

Champagne Sabering @ The St. Regis Florence (23. April 2016)

Although I was not staying at The St. Regis in Florence, we managed to attend the “Champagne Sabering” which has tradition in the St. Regis’ as my friends were staying there. When you attend the event, you are served with some small dishes – a fruit salad, a crab cocktail, and some other fish dish. […]

Funny icecream flavours: Gelateria Santa Trinita (23. April 2016)

The Gelateria Santa Trinita offers proper Italian ice cream – but they offer also something more: True Italian ice cream with a twist. I went for the non-standard flavors: “ricotta and figs”, “black sesame” and “pure pistachio” (EUR 3.90). The ricotta you can barely taste but the figs are fresh, sweet and aromatic. What is […]
