Opened in December 2008, it’s open for dinner from Mondays to Saturdays. The Benedicta restaurant welcomes you from the heart of Florence in theSanta Maria Novella district. It has a choice of refined dishes some of which include Florentine traditional recipes that have been appropriately revisited.
Car parking in the centre of the city isn’t a problem: the nearby Excelsior garage is a your disposal and you can leave your car here for 2 ½ hours free.
The proposed cuisine is a result of the long experience of Mr Ioppoli, manager of the restaurant, who together with the chef, personally studies each single dish with attention mixing personal tastes with flavours, for the pleasure of the more demanding and curious palate.
The menu is frequently changed and varied according to the season, along with a selected wine list and apart from the normal proposals, dishes are designed with a theme for particular evenings. Altogether paying attention to the final bill where you will be pleasantly surprised.
The atmosphere at the Benedicta restaurant is the result of great knowledge and careful use of restoration using modern techniques on internal spaces of this pre-existing structure and its old Florentine style cross vaulted ceilings, inserting new architectural elements, giving life to a very original locality with its own real beautiful character.
The colours chosen for the internal coverings and furnishings have been based on whites and soft tones of grey, and are aimed at enhancing this particular interpretation of modern and contemporary ideas to the original structure.
Soft lighting effects applied to the walls are iridescent in a dynamic way on the vaults, the white veils on the ceilings, the fountain which plays with water and light gives the Benedicta restaurant brightness, originality and elegance, confirming a particularly decisive and distinguishable character.
The garden full of flowers, elegant but also reserved, offers a pleasant oasis of peace where you can have an aperitif or complete dinner.
Let yourself be embraced by our welcome and our special service, for an evening where you will get to know every aspect of the word “quality”.
