An artsy cafe-bookshop for most of the day, at lunch and dinner this place turns into one of Florence's best spots for vegetarian or vegan food. There are plenty of seasonal salads and creative pasta dishes, but a piatto unico works out best value for hungry diners: one combo plate loaded with three dishes from the main menu, perhaps a tomato, onion, and oregano salad; potato and broccoli lasagne with ginger and parsley sauce; plus an eggplant and mozzarella pane carasau (Sardinian flatbread). The atmosphere, with tables ranged around an internal courtyard, is intimate and romantic—yet singletons won't feel at all out of place eating at the bar out front. Booking at dinner is a must in high season and on weekends.
