In 2017, I wrote my first review of Trattoria Cammillo in Florence, Italy. I have included it on many dining guides I’ve compiled for sites like Eater and in the past for Vogue. I recommend it as a top 5 to pretty much anyone who asks me whether a food tour guest or a IG user.

I haven’t written a review in a while, as the last (nearly) 3 years since the pandemic broke have taken such a toll on the restaurant industry- I felt they would be unfair and to some extent, frivolous.

I love food so much, I want everyone to eat great food and I hope the world lives forever if just to give us wonderful food. And if you share my love for simply bullseye spot-on grub with at least an ounce of enthusiasm, I highly recommend Aroma Ristorante. Especially if you are looking to eat at one of the best seafood restaurants in Florence! Continue Reading →
