Pennello's is very nice and used to have a great antipasti starter menu... good prices, too. It's casual and tucked away on the via Dante.

We ate at this local restaurant twice and really enjoyed it both times. It is in the Oltrano district so away from the tourist area.

Tratorria Angiolino located on Via S. Spirito 36/R, telephone no. 055 2398976. This is located on the souith side of the river between the Ponte a Santa Trinita (Via Maggio) (this is one bridge north of the more famous Ponte Vecchio) and the Ponte alla Carraia (Via dei Serraglia). S. Spirito paralells the river and is the second street to the south of the river. I spent a lot of time in this place 2 years ago and hope you find it as wonderful as we did.

Travel Tips for Florence

Michelangelo and Leonardo

by codrutz

Pictured trough the statues on the wall of the Ufizzi Galleries (see both pictures of this tip), the two geniuses of art rivals, Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni (March 6, 1475 – February 18, 1564) and Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (April 15, 1452 – May 2, 1519), are the most famous product of Tuscany. Though Michelangelo was, as I said, a genius in art, I personally consider Leonardo to be a true pioneer with an unlimited vision, ahead of its times, doing researches in so many fields, but especially in anatomy, astronomy, civil engineering and optics.

Antiques & bric-a-brac...Florentine style

by Zlur

On the second Sunday of every month the dynamic Piazza Santo Spirito is transformed into a market square with lots of stalls containing wonderful antiques and those hard-to-find items! Whereas if you're around for the third Sunday of the month stick around for a fresh organic produce, preserves and crafts market. They open from 9am - 7pm; if you're in town be sure not to miss either one.

Simple, beautiful & affordable jewelry!

by meltdown about Cose Del 900

What a charming find! We so enjoyed chatting with the owners of this gem-of-a-shop. One owner is from Florence and the other from Germany and they speak English, as well. Their shop is on such a beautiful street and just 2 minutes from Ponte Vecchio. They have been in this same location since 1981! So many wonderful things! Margarete, one of the owners, specializes in simple, beautiful pieces. She has a wonderfully elegant touch. Plus they are happy to tailor a piece for you while you wait at no extra charge! I was very impressed with how affordable those beautiful items were! It seems that everything is SO expensive these days - This shop was a real treat. I was able to purchase 3 lovely items (2 bracelets and 1 necklace) for under 90 Euro!

All about Buses

by mariocibelli

There are four main bus companies that serve Florence.

LAZZI: serves the region North and West of Florence. They are located in the Piazza della Stazione, right next to the porno movie theatre.

SITA: Serves the south and east. This is where you get the bus for Siena and San Gimignano (via Poggibonsi). The station is located across from the station in Via di Santa Caterina di Siena (the street that connects to Via della Scala).
Website: www.sita.it

COPIT: serves Pistoia and Abertone (the mini-ski resort just an hour from Florence).

CAP: the north and the Mugello. Located in Largo Fratelli Alinari 9

The one we knew was good

by rsilva about Ristorante Nuti

Our friends had recommended this restaurant as one of the few with a combination of good food/service and price. We were not dissapointed.

I had a beef Carpaccio, one of my favorite starters. It was very good and this was actually the first time I tried it in Italy, quite different from the one you get elsewhere. Very simple, just the slices of beef on a bed of Rucola, served with some lemon juice and olive oil, topped by thin slices of Parmiggiano cheese.

My girlfriend wanted a sallad, but there weren't any on the menu so she asked the waiter if he could have one prepared anyway. He replied: "I CAN do that, but then you will be charged a lot for it as they will consider each ingredient as a supplement". I think this was extremely honest from him. He actually left before we paid (I guess his shift ended), so it made us appreciate the gesture even more.

I had a simple pasta with cream and almonds which is one of my favorites (I can't resist cream on the pasta) and it was also great.

Overall, great food, very friendly waiter and a fair price (13 Euros, fixed-price menu for a starter and a pasta). Carpaccio, pasta (I guess I can generalize and say all pasta is good)
