great casual dining

Family members recommended the Carbonata di Chianina (insanely large steak) and had I had some male company I reckon I'd have enjoyed that. Instead had the tagliata which was good.

Decided to make a trip here as a lot of recommendations had been made about the steak. For some reason I decided not to have one, and there my mistake was made! We decided to share the starter of bruschetta with cheese - pretty poor if I'm honest. Didn't taste of a great deal and was almost a bit plastic-like.... More

We ate at this great restaurant twice on our recent trip. The food was delicious in a casual atmosphere. The steak and pasta carbonara were fantastic. Would definitely recommend.

We arrived with I reservations on a Thursday night and were seated outside after just a short wait (party of 2). We were each going to get our own pasta course, but the waiter actually was very helpful and suggested we split one as their portions were large. We split the drunken pasta (wine boiled in red wine and finished... More

Strawberry risotto. If your first impression is curiosity - then you must try it. If your first impression is "that sounds weird", then this restaurant might not be for you. They also have spaghetti cooked in red wine. Again - curiosity or quick judgment? I first came here 5 years ago on the recommendation of a friend for the strawberry... More

This was highly recommended by one of our tour guides. At first we were put off by the English menu posted outside that described almost all of the beef dishes as “served bloody.” We like rare/medium rare beef, but this seemed to be more of a warning than a description. We decided to try it anyhow. So glad we did.... More

My wife and I shared the florentine steak for two and it was clearly one of the best things that we enjoyed our trip throughout Italy. The tenderness and seasoning of the meat was special. We don't eat beef very often and I'm sure that we'll be disappointed when we do from now on...this surpasses any of the famous steak... More

We had been here many years ago. We first went after seeing the food from a nearby 'stand up bar' and thought 'this looks good'. Afterwards we saw that this was also recommended in our guide book of choice which tends to be rather selective. We had the 'Drunken Spaghetti' as well as some roasted radicchio both of which I...

I went for the first time with my mom the summer of 2003 and we had the best steak we had ever had. Over ten years later we came back (April 2014) and had another great meal. Have steak and salad and vino!
