Sant'Ambrogio is a Roman Catholic church in Florence, region of Tuscany, Italy. It is named in honour of St Ambrose.HistoryAllegedly built where Saint Ambrose would have stayed when in Florence in 393, the church is first recorded in 998, but is probably older. The church was rebuilt by Giovanni Battista Foggini in the 17th century.A legend says that on 30th December 1230 a chalice which had not been cleaned was the next day found to contain blood rather than wine by Uguccione, the parish priest. This Eucharistic miracle made the church a place of pilgrimage.Francesco Granacci (1469–1543), an Italian painter of the Renaissance and lifelong friend of Michelangelo Buonarroti, is buried in this church.ArtThe church contains numerous frescos, altarpieces, and other artwork attributed to Andrea Orcagna, Agnolo Gaddi, Niccolò Gerini, Lorenzo di Bicci, Masaccio, Filippo Lippi, Sandro Botticelli, Alesso Baldovinetti, Fra Bartolomeo, and Leonardo Tassini.

Tips from the Net @ Ristorante Sant' Ambrogio

Pleasant stylish restaurant with delicious well presented food, quick service, attentive staff & reasonable prices. We were a family of four (two teenage boys) & all enjoyed the food & the occasion. Only minor quibble was - our table & the table beside us were both delivered meals intended for others due to understaffing (although this was efficiently resolved). GooglePlace - December 2017

Easily the best meal we had in Firenzie Impeccable service combined with truly delicious flavors. Every course stood out as a shining example of what happens when food is lovingly crafted. Most notably the risotto was absolutely perfect and the steak took it to another level. GooglePlace - November 2017

This place feels a bit odd to me. Nothing really Italian about it. Music in English, menu in English and a pretty ordinary menu. The food was nice and service good. But the place was almost empty and those who were eating were mostly from other countries. No Italians in sight. Felt a bit like a tourist restaurant. GooglePlace - July 2017
