Il Santo Bevitore. Unpretentious and lovely food in Florence.

Il Santo Bevitore in Florence has it all; great wine, excellent food and a Il Santo Bevitoregood atmosphere!

Just a few steps away from Gucci, Salvatore Ferragamo and Dior, you´ll find another great restaurant in Florence or Firenze. Il Santo Bevitore has a big and welcoming room filled with food loving guests and a busy staff.

Chianti RiservaThey have a fine wine list with good prices. As shown on their walls, you can find wine from several parts of Italy and even a few French bottles, but it would just feel wrong not to pick a Tuscan bottle when you are in the hood. We tried a new producer and had (yet another) great wine experience here. It was a Chianti Classico Riserva from Monte Maggio from the wonderful year in Tuscany, 2007. This Chianti is lighter than a lot of the other Riservas and very elegant. A new favorite, and for just €32. A great buy.

The latter so good that I ordered a second round of it. Both me and the girls loved it!
