Great location for people watching as it is not in a touristy area. The food was very tasty and the prices were appropriate for the amount of food you get. The staff was prompt and courteous.

Santo Spirito is less touristic, has some very cute restaurants to grab lunch or dinner. It also has a market. A must visit when you go to Florence and want to escape the busy touristic areas.

I was there on a Sunday. Looked like a marketplace being held in the square. Not many people and fewer tourists there, unlike some of the other larger squares in the city.

A bit more laid back compared to some of the other piazza locations. Very nice cafes and a pretty fountain. Wonderful place to sit on the steps of the church and enjoy some afternoon sun.

Santa Spirito is not far from the main areas. At Santa Spirito you can find a good mix of locals and tourists. There are great restaurants over there. On certain days there is also a market. We loved the atmosphere there.
