Florence, help --

Hi there -- I'm heading to Florence with my mum, for three nights in April (Fri - Mon). So far I've compiled this list, mostly from Chow (thanks!). I think I've got a handle on some great, quick lunch spots, but I'm having a harder time figuring out where to have a nice, quiet, evening meal.

lunch: Da Nerbone, Da Sergio, Mario -- the problem: these places are closed on Sunday -- any ideas for a Sunday lunch?

dinner: Il Cibreo, Tre Soldi
I ate at Il Cibreo about six years ago and quite liked it -- I think we'll eat here as long as my mum doesn't mind the wait in line.
Tre Soldi sounds quite nice -- and it looks like they're open for Sunday dinner.

So this leaves me stumped for Sunday lunch, and in need of a recommendation for another dinner. I think Tre Soldi and Il Cibreo are pretty casual, so it might be nice for the other dinner to be a bit fancier. We could splurge somewhat, but we're not really interested in hyper-touristy (I know, we're tourists too) places like La Giostra. What do you think??

Grazie mille!
