How to join PyFiorentina

Although the restaurant is fully available to us, places are also limited to 220, and reservation is mandatory. To book your seats in advance, you need to buy a voucher for the full amount of €37 through this website (basically paying the whole dinner in advance). We will then give you the physical voucher once you register at EuroPython, and you will need to present the voucher at the restaurant as a proof of payment.

Please notice that it is still possible to order some extras by having a look to the full menu of the restaurant. For instance, a true meat lover might want to skip the first courses and go for a whole T-Bone Steak to eat by himself; in this case, you will need to pay the difference from the €37 voucher directly at the counter.

Looking forward to your feedback ... Keep a light lunch!

The map show both places in yellow placeholders, in order to simplify the gathering.

    DISQUS is going to PyFiorentina, are you?

    P.S. Why aren't you using DISQUS for comments!?!?

    Also as this is on the 4th of July I hope there will be some special fireworks to make the Americans feel at home ;)

    "Goliardic"?? I don't think that's a common english euphemism. But, looking at the wikipedia entry, it's pretty good. I may adopt it...

    Can I suggest an "Early Bird" get together on the Sunday night - possibly at the bar outside the hotel? - This would be especially useful for the partners as it would give them a chance to get together and possibly plan some unofficial joint outings.
