Local favourite, off the beaten path

Excellent food with a good selection. Friendly staff, and locals. Food well cooked and presented. Wines excellent. Gets very busy on Sundays with local families so bookings necessary. Can get a bit chaotic (and hot) when busy.

My partner and I have been coming to this restaurant on and off for about 4 years. The food is amazing, the staff are friendly and accommodating and the prices are fair. Could not recommend it enough!

The food was fantastic, staff friendly and helpful to non italian speakers, the atmosphere was comfortable and you felt like you were having dinner with a family member, highly recommended.

The food was Excellent. It is not a tourist trap as it is out of the Center. The service was great, and it is a lovely setting. I would highly recommend this restaurant. It's worth the 5 minute taxi from the Center!!! Food is fresh because they will tell you they ran out and they will accommodate your changes in... More

I visited a few times in the last 15 years and never got disappointed. The restaurant is a little out from the overcrowded tourist eara. Very recomend to order the bisteca fourrentina. Good wijn and service. High value for your money.

This restaurant was closest to the place we were living in while in Florence. We had already read the reviews and we knew what to expect. We loved the time there, the host was lovely and the food was fresh and tasty. We had some wonderful conversation and wine to go with it. Didn't want the evening to end...

Food was great and the place was out of the touristy area which was also really nice after a long day of walking. Shame the food took so long! Our waitress was lovely and did apologise but it seemed most of the restaurant was waiting and it was over 40 mins before we got our main meal after starter was... More

Ate here on a Sunday as it was the only restaurant open near San Gatto Palace hotel (the Gastronomia Affrezzo seems to have shut down or is perhaps this place under a new name).Staff were friendly and there were plenty of locals tucking in. The menu had English subtitles though we struggled to understand the specials board. Note to earlier... More

The concierge at our hotel recommended the restaurant. It was close and he said that it is a favorite among people in the community. My mom and I are visiting Florence, and while traveling, we have both eaten our weight in pasta, so we were looking for a good "secondi" course. I got roastbeef and my mother got the chicken...
