It is most unique experience for an opera lover in Florence…you cant not get that close and intimate to a talented baritone, tenor, or soprano in US
We attended already several performances in the last 2 years, but this time we bought combination tickets for the concert and the dinner. The show was 100%, as always and we were pleasantly surprised by these menu as well as the special atmosphere in the restaurant, less than 150 meters from St. Marc's. The arrangement is super, because where would you be able to have a delicious Tuscan dinner starting at 19:00 hrs end be easily on time for the concert?
Osteria Toscanella was a great restaurant. Food was tasty and served promptly. The manager is a gem who welcomed everyone, told us about the history of his restaurant and was terrific. All other staff were kind and attentive. Concert was right around the corner at St. Marks Anglican Church. The program was a variety of arias from various operas with a baritone and soprano singing. The were fantastic, very expressive and quite talented. The accompanying pianist had a great sense of humor and pacing and we appreciated his music as well. There is a brief intermission during which you can look around the sanctuary, have a glass of prosecco and make a donation to one of the church's mission programs, which we were very happy to do. The staff even kindly called us a taxi to get back to our hotel at the end. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening and thought it well worth the time and money.
