A Deli by day, a gastronomic experience by night. This 20 seat (all at a bar) presents fantastic food, from a small, ever changing menu.

Tasty ravioli with zucchini but local pasta pachi with meat sauce was too salty. The owner was rude when we stopped by to make a reservation.

Homemade amazing Tuscan, Italian food in a sleek 20 seat bar service atmosphere. (Reminded me of a sushi bar) A large selection of wines. The menu changes daily based on what they have and make fresh. It is really, really fresh. I have an Italian mother-in-law, I mean born in Italy Italian, and I have never had pasta that tasted...

Closed Wednesdays. This tiny restaurant is one of our favorites. The food is extraordinary. The dishes are seasonal but the pastas are always superb...much better than the usual Florence fare. Try truffle dishes or pear ravioli if available. Desserts are truly homemade. The owners and staff are attentive, efficient, and friendly.

My husband and I enjoyed our dinner here. Both of us had a ricotta/pear ravioli appetizer which was very fresh and good. We had two different chicken dishes for our main entrees which were also tasty. The florentine cake was excellent. We felt the service was just ok. They had a chalkboard that had the choices of the evening written... More

I would recommend booking if you want to go here and also looking slightly presentable. They were kind enough to fit us in on a busy night... We had some beautiful pasta and a lovely flavoursome main.

Great meal, had 3 courses with a bottle of wine and a coffee for 50 Euros. Really good value for the quality of the food. Spaghetti with truffle, braised beef with onions and a dessert. See pics I attached, the food is quick beautiful and well balanced.

Definitely a highlight for the trip. Had the best pasta lunch there. Do make a reservation ahead if you are going for a dinner as it was full when we headed for it again for dinner. We had pasta and some antipasti there. The pasta were definitely the best we had for the whole trip!!
