A Nice Rest in the Heart of Florence, Italy
Ristorante Pizzeria l’Daviddino Review
On our recent holiday to Florence, Italy, within a block of the Duomo, we found Ristorante Pizzeria l’Daviddino. We are always looking for nice, relatively inexpensive, and quick places to dine when traveling. Little David, as its called in English, fit perfectly. It was also on the same block as our hotel, Hotel Spadai. So, the convenience was great.
As with many of Florence’s restaurants, Daviddino had side walk seating. The interior is simple and pleasant with a definite Italian feel. We chose to dine in the central courtyard. The courtyard was cool, quiet, and comfortable. This provided a nice respite from the crowds.
The service at Daviddino was excellent. Our server was a pleasant, young, woman whose English was perfect. The food arrived promptly and piping hot.
As we have mentioned before, we love pizza. No excuse is ever necessary for us to eat pizza. In Italy though, it would almost seem wrong not to indulge. Our pizza was good, but not great. Honestly, we were all a little disappointed. The crust was thin and crisp. The cheese was creamy and tasty. The sauce was a little bland. Even bad pizza is pretty good. This was good. So, we were satisfied.
Eating at Daviddino is quite reasonable. A pizza costs between 7 – 12 Euros, which seems to be a fairly standard price in Florence and Rome. Pasta dishes were more expensive, but not outrageous. The three of us shared 2 pizzas and had water. Even after the tip, we dined for around 20 Euros and were satisfied.
Museo del Vino
Daviddino offers a nice surprise for the diner, Museo del Vino. In the middle of the restaurant and down some stairs is a little tribute to wine making. In the small room, you will find equipment used to make wine before automatization. It is worth a short stop.
If you are visiting the Duomo in Florence, Italy, then Daviddino is good option for pizza or pasta. The location could not be better; on the block between the Duomo and the Medici Palace. The service and atmosphere are great, and the Museo del Vino is an added treat. The food is good and price is reasonable. We tried several other restaurants near the Duomo. Ristorante Pizzeria l’Daviddino was our favorite.
