Description

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

Fantastic dinning experience for the cost, we had antipasti, il primo, and due secondo, for under 80 euro, in addition to wine and coffee. The food was fresh and delicious, the style of the restaurant was more of an Italian fusion. GooglePlace - October 2017

We had a wonderful evening here, very attentive staff and delicious fresh food - pasta and brochette. Treated by the owner to lemonchello for an after dinner drink. Need to sit outside. GooglePlace - September 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

Decent service. Thinks it's fancier than it is. Definitely overpriced as far as quality. Food presentation is nice. Desert was relatively disappointing, but edible. Pork dish and potatoes were fine, but the relatively simple pasta dish in our party was pretty disappointing/lacking. Other stuff was fine but fairly unexciting. Bit of a tourist trap, I think, as it looks pretty nice/promising from the outside. Not the worst place to eat, but there are definitely better places to spend your money. If you don't mind a Pescatarian (vegetarian except for fish) menu, Ruth's (a lovely Jewish place) across the street is probably a better bet, though not traditional Italian fare, obviously. Wouldn't go here a second time. GooglePlace - May 2017
