It is popular, we had to make reservations several days in advance. We did not eat a meal with several courses, but what we did eat was very good. We had pasta with sea food and steak tartare. Both were good. The wine by the glass was good too. So was dessert and and after dinner honey digestive. The place... More

My wife and I rented an apartment for 2 weeks just half a block from restaurant so we needed to check it out... Wonderful ambiance, very reasonable prices... My wife had a very delicious salad and I had the carpaccio... Excellent Italian beer for only 3.50 E and great house Chianti for only 3.00 E... Can not wait to go... More

Reservations recommended. This is a very popular place in the Oltrarno. We had not made a reservation (and the place was packed), but they said they could get us in an hour later, so we went for a walk and they were holding a table for us when we came back. The pasta with duck ragu and candied orange was... More

Opinions split between Italians in our party who found it very underwhelming, and americans who loved it. So this is the Italian view....... Tomato soup was 'bread mashed into tomato sauce', affetati were bland, stuffed rabbit was just mashed liver no herbs and too intense and not completely cooked so raw on the bone; wine needed decanting which was a...

Really good food and wine, slick service, gorgeous place but we had the distinct impression we were being hurried through. We knew we had be be out by 9.30pm so why can't they open before 7.30pm? And charging two euro for tap water?

If you're in Florence please do yourself a favor and go to this restaurant. The environment is relaxing and the food has great quality. We really had a nice dinner. Vegetarian option available! :)

Very special meals, not an extended menu but enough to find something to your taste, and it will surely be something to remember. Great selection of wines. You better reserve in advance, especially for dinner.

PROS: Food was great. Seems more formal than it actually is. Quite cozy once you are arrive. Actually a great date place, I think. Definitely one to impress. Friendly service once you get there. Booking is a nightmare, however. CONS: A bit of an arrogant crowd. Terrible responsiveness to emails and phone calls. We eventually had to walk there to... More

The restaurant looks great and is very popular. We made a reservation the night before and got one of the last tables for the Friday night. The service was very attentive and friendly. The menu' was however very short and we had a problem finding our favourites. I ended up with a Porchini risotto and my partner their only fish... More

Simple italian food with good wine is always a nice treat when traveling to Italy. This is not that hard to find but it's not in the center.
