New year's eve/day fun in Florence/SG/Siena

Hi!

After visiting family in Rome for Christmas we will be driving throughout Umbria and Tuscany. We plan on spending new year's eve in Florence and want to know of a fun place to eat at and perhaps to count down the new year (bar maybe?). We are in our mid-late 20's, so are pretty much up for anything fun and not stuffy. Budget is not a problem, although nothing extremely expensive (i.e. over 150€) or formal. Preferrably somewhere where the waiters don't speak English and the menu is not in 5 languages...

But of course, we don't want to have too much fun on new year's eve... because we plan to spend new year's day visiting SG and Siena (I know, I know, not enough time...but oh well). Will everything be closed? Or does anyone know of any restaurants in both places that might be open to have lunch/dinner on new year's day? Or will we have to pack panini?

Thanks!

      1. Many Italians like to go out for a leisurely lunch on holidays like New Years - so I would think you would find a place without too much difficulty. Worth checking out places otherwise interesting to see if they are open and have seats for you. A few years ago we walked into a relatively obscure (we thought) restaurant in Ostia Antica on I think Epifania and we were out of luck, full of Italians settling down to an afternoon of eating.
