Everything about this restaurant was great!

Our waiter was adorable and so helpful. The food was cooked to perfection. Some of the best gnoochi I have ever tasted. Good wine and not totally unreasonable. I am definitely going back when we go again in September.

The service, ambience and decor was nice, we had a fantastic wine recommended to us which was good for both fish and pork. I really wanted to love this place, given the stellar reviews and the fact that I was taking my partner out for his birthday meal. The food was really average though, and I really really didn't like... More

We tried to get in without a reservation and as this is a very popular restaurant they had nothing available and so we booked for the following evening for 9:30pm which was their earliest available table. When we arrived the next evening, it's weird but when you walk in and stand in the entrance waiting for the host all of... More

We tried this place on the recommendation of friends who described their experience in a lot of detail and urged us to book ahead. Their advice was excellent. The food is inventive and wonderful and the wine and service were also great. I had a dish they translated as "asparagus cheesecake" in English - so be ready for interesting cuisine!... More

We ate here for lunch, without a reservation. We were taken to the far room (on the corner) which had a handful of tables--with nice daylight. We were pleased with the room. We had a rabbit pasta dish with conchiglie pasta--tasty, flavorful, nice to try but I probably wouldn't order a second time. For the main course we had the... More

Multiple people recommended this restaurant, so we had to try it on our last night in town. The restaurant was busy with a trendy, wine bar atmosphere. We enjoyed our food and wine very much, and the service was top notch. Our server recommended a Chianti, and it hit the mark. A traditional American-style salad, as an appetizer, was very... More

This restaurant has made all the major guide books so it's necessary to book ahead, especially if you want to avoid being seated in the crowded central room with bad acoustics. The menu is diversified so you'll find new entries on future visits and they are all pretty high Quality. The first courses are appetizing, the main dishes too much... More

We had high expectations for this place after recommendations from friends and tripadvisor reviews. Sadly we found our meal average, and would say the same even if we didn't know of the hype. Food didn't wow us, but we can't say enough to praise the service. Staff were top notch!

Well worth a visit to this restaurant located on the good side of Florence ;) The ravioli pasta was fresh and tasty and the beef fillet and roast pork main dishes were delicious. We gave dessert a miss as there wasn't anything to our liking. Good wine selection too. There's a nice atmosphere in the restaurant and we had a... More

Great place. Great food. Great staff. Why? You are nicely welcomed in a place that invites to taste excellent Italian cuisine. You feel the dolce vita. The menu is full of nice food. The staff provides you with very good advise. The result is excellent. Again price/quality a strongly recommended place.
