I am so glad I booked this for my trip to Firenze! I booked it on the day I arrived so I wasn’t exhausted from sight seeing during the day. The meal was excellent, the restaurant staff were kind, courteous, and helpful, and the show after was amazing!! The church that the show is performed at is small but the ambience is beautiful! I thoroughly enjoyed this experience and highly recommend it!

For opera lovers this is a must-do. St. Marks is a great venue where you are within a few feet of the performers, who are accompanied by piano. It is very intimate and the performers are top-notch. The night we were there they performed La Traviata which was beautifully done in this small setting. Dinner was nice in a near-by restaurant a short distance away. The combination price was really reasonable.

We did the Opera experience. It was a very nice time and we are pleased to say that we saw an Italian Opera in Italy! However dinner was a bit lackluster. It's clear they used a 'tourist' menu which I suppose it my fault for booking the preset menu which was mostly to save time and make sure we had no problems reaching the show on time. It was fine, and probably even good for individuals who aren't comfortable deviating from the average pasta and meat sauce to be fair, my husband absolutely loved his pasta and duck sauce. After enjoying a lot of other amazing food in the city, it was a bit of a let down. Overall, still a good experience. Next time, I would just likely chose the ala cart option.

The meal was disappointing, not great quality, and let the evening down. The performance of the three performers in the church was superb, we could have listened to them for another hour! Such talent!

The dinner was amazing, We chose the a la carte option due to food allergies etc. The broccoli flan was amazing and the risotto a hit. Only downside was the calamari which was too touch to eat for one of my party. However it was a very rushed meal in order to get to the opera concert. Could have done without the concert it was very basic . Nice voices but really more a recital than a concert.

An incredible night, highlight of our trip to Florence! St. Marks Anglican Church was a lovely, intimate venue for this special concert. Two sopranos, a tenor and pianist performed arias from famous operas. All the performers were outstanding and the evening is a fundraiser so the performers donate their time for free. I laughed, cried and had goosebumps everything you could want in a performance. No to be missed.
