Pastation

PaStation is a contemporary Italian restaurant born in Florence that combines the tradition of “slow food” with the modern process of “quick-cooking”, thus creating for their customers an opportunity to have a quick, quality, healthy, nutritious, and affordable meal.  It was born from the desire to change the classic format of Italian catering worldwide.

PaStation is divided into three areas that can meet the needs of any type of customer at any time of the day or night: the restaurant, the market, and take-away/delivery.  They offer sit-down meals inside the restaurant but also have the option of taking your lunch or dinner to-go.  As well, PaStation provides delivery services, whether to home or the office, to further increase the customer’s convenience.  Here, one can experience authentic Italian food presented in a unique format.

Osteria Santo Spirito

In the corner of a lively piazza in the Oltrano, Osteria Santo Spirito finds its home.  L’Osteria presents Tuscan based cuisine done to a superb quality.  The amazing dishes are served in a friendly environment with affordable prices.  Deviating away from the typical pastas and pizzas, Osteria Santo Spirito offers twists on classic dishes on their sinfully good menu.  One of such being the Gnocchi Gratinati ai Formaggi Morbidi al Profumo di Tartufo (Truffle and Cheese Gnocchi), which we highly recommend trying.  The restaurant is the perfect place to eat, drink, socialize, and most of all, experience true Tuscan food.
