For our last day in Florence, we decided to walk around the city and check the Piazzale Michelangelo where one can admire the panorama of Florence, as well as a second replica of The David.
I admit that I was disappointed in a way, as I was expecting a square with a park and the statue in the middle, and not a parking lot and small shops for tourists...
It was a nice walk though and from there, we went back to Piazza Di Santo Spirito where we dined the second day in Florence. Our restaurant of choice was Osteria Santo Spirito that Jodi's friend, Missy, recommended.
Right after we sat, they brought us some bread and tapenade.
The bread being unsalted, it was perfect with the tapenade.
Then, we went for a tomato and mozzarella salad.
The mozzarella di buffala was deliciously soft; I am not sure if they make it there or buy it at the store. Anyway, as you can see on the photo, the plates used to serve the food were a bit...used, similar to Grandma's kitchen!
We then ordered the Polpete Al Sugo or meatballs with tomato sauce.
But the star of the dish were the meatballs: they were succulent, moist and tasty. This is definitely a dish I recommend.
We also tried the Minestra di Farro or spelt bean soup:
I ordered the small size and did not expect to get a large bowl.
It was also very good and very comforting. I also recommend that dish that I finished without any problem.
When we finished, they brought us some cherries.
We definitely had a wonderful meal at Osteria Santo Spirito, a place that I definitely recommend.
