Lunch Places in the center of Florence 

Dinner Restaurants in Florence

My favorite Pizzeria’s in Florence

  • Yummy Napolotano pizza’s on via dei macci, make sure to make reservations! One of my faves!
  • Pizzaman franchise in Florence. Napoli-style pizza, I really like the location on via rocca tedalda.
  • Caffe Italiano (the pizzeria not the Osteria). They only have three choices – Margarita, Napoli or Marinara. Show up around 7pm to get a spot in this tiny location near S.Croce.
  • Pizzeria Orto del Cigno (along the river). This is a place where many locals go for pizza. It’s a little bit our of the center but you can get there in 15 minutes by bus (14). Huge NYC style pizza pie’s that I love.
  • Gusta Pizza in Piazza Santo Spirito.via maggio is a local favorite. Tiny interior or  you can bring your pizza outside on the church steps to eat – cheap & yummy.

Coffee, Tea and chillaxing in Florence

  • What about just coffee and tea but you don’t feel getting overcharged? Here are my local spots of trendy & comfy coffee & tea bars. I always add to my list when I discover new ones.
  • Dolce Lab on via dei macci, really really great muffins!
  • Hemingway’s, piazza piattellina (near piazza della carmine)

My Favorite Geleto places in town!

  • Carabe (Sicilian), Via Ricasoli 60/r close to the Duomo. Really awesome fruit gelato. This place just ROCKS
  • Geleteria dei Neri, Via dei Neri 20/22R. Better than Vivoli, just sayin. 
  • Geleteria della Passera, Piazza della Passera 15 (close to Palazzo Pitti). Don’t think about the awkward name of the Piazza.
  • Geleteria dei Medici, via dello statuto. Well worth the trek!

  • Another aperitivo favorite (a real find) is Libreria Brac on a hidden street near via dei benci!
  • Another gorgeous terrace that you can have aperitivo – Hotel Baglioni, terrazza brunelleschi has a gorgeous veggie buffet and some of the best Duomo views in town.
