Highly reccomended.

We went here twice we liked it so much. The Caprese salad was excellent. We had a pasta with a meat sauce like a pot roast that was incredible--we'll need to locate the recipe somewhere since we need to recreate it! Spicy pasta lived up to it's name! The wine selection is very good. Another... read more

This is a lovely restaurant that is just fun to be in....from watching them take bottle of wine off the wall, to the dishes being served at other tables, to the carving of hams. The food was some of the most amazing I ever had and the service topped any of the places we ate at during our 2 weeks... More

This restaurant is located south of the Arno, very close to the second bridge west of Ponte Vecchio. It is a large, bustling restaurant, quite loud. The food and service were both good, though we got trapped into a very late (for us) dinner that lasted until 11:00 (not the restaurant's fault).

One of our favorite spots in Florence. Start your evening off first at the sister wine bar next door. They have an amazing selection of meat and cheeses to go along with great wines. Make your way to the restaurant which will not disappoint.

We had a fantastic dinner experience at this restaurant. Both of our meals were great - A steak and a vegetarian dish. The starter (cheese plate) was delicious as was the dessert(s) we ordered. Our waiter was helpful and informative especially because I had a restrictive, vegetarian diet. Definitely worth coming here for a nice meal.

Dinner here because of praise reviews but can't say we agree. We both had the Pappa di Pomodoro, a fresh tomato & bread soup, delicious flavor but I presume it was prepared ahead & microwave waved as it was hot all around the circular edges & ice cold in the middle. I had the lamb with artichokes, which was good... More

We phoned for a reservation in the afternoon and were told that if we arrived when the restaurant opened at 19.30 we could have a table for four as long as we vacated it by 21.00 to which we agreed. We arrived in good time and stood outside drinking glasses of wine from the bar a few doors up. At... More

We walked around the restaurant and the menu looked good. Then reviews seen on trip advisor confirmed the first good impression. We decided to book by phone to make sure to do not walk from downtown to get oust at the restaurant's door. We arrived in time and received a good welcome. Waitress and waiters speak all English, French and... More

We booked a table here as the restaurant was near our hotel and looked extremely busy every night, and seemed popular with reviewers on this site. The atmosphere was buzzing and there was a mixed crowd of locals and tourists. However, the food was a disappointment. As an appetizer we had cheeses and sott'olio, which were fine. The pappa al...
