Great place on the south side of the city , modern, clean and great menu choices ranging from filled ravioli pasta to meat board selections all freshly sliced. The wine selection was excellent and the server suggested a glass of Bolgheri to go with our pasta dish and I have to say both were excellent . For you wine lovers... More

Zebs restaurant provided us with one of our best nights of our 6 week European holiday. A different setting with us sitting around a bar but very personalised service and interaction with a maximum of about 20 people seated at one time. The owner and his mother were a delight and got very obvious pleasure from their cooking of beautiful... More

We had read some good reviews and were excited to celebrate our last night in Florence here. We were not disappointed in the quality of the food. Unfortunately, the prior reviews of the owner being rude and condescending were all true. We arrived at an empty restaurant at 9 pm and ordered our first course of pasta. When I reached... More

We arrived to find we had to wait 15 min although we had booked. High stools wrapped around bench not great for conversation. But food interesting and pleasant. Not great value or terrific service.

Wonderful place and amazing food and atmosphere but when I paid the bill a few weeks ago they made a great show of having made a mistake with running my card through the machine and assured me that I had, nevertheless, only paid once. When I got back to the UK I noticed my account had been charged three times... More

Dear Mr. TravlinMac, There is absolutely a misunderstanding on your part about the unfortunate technical error. We had processed your card only once and I do not know why the charge resulted three times. As soon as we were signaled by Visa, we immediately sent Visa a fax indicating that only one of the charges was valid and the two... More

This is the most gorgeous gem of a place. Everything is perfect and beautiful and you want to try it all. The food was delicious, it is a little off the well beaten tourist path...I would highly recommend. We shared meats and cheeses to begin and then shared a pasta...were too stuffed after that to have anything else, but I... More

I booked this restaurant upon recommendation from a friend who has been living in Florence for a few months. Upon arrival I asked the waiter whether they had any tables, as we only saw a bar. I don't have a problem with sitting at the bar, but as we had made a reservation I just wanted to know whether we... More

The meal was incredible, never would have guessed the combination of ricotta ravioli and pear sauce would be so delicious. Thanks for the memorable lunch.

This place is not to be missed! Fantastic fresh ingredients, modern decor, excellent wine list. The food is made with only the freshest ingredients, so there isn't a set menu- it changes daily based on ingredient quality.

A delicatesen/ casual eating place, we came here for lunch. With no reservations, we came around midday/ 1pm and got a seat at the bar at the back. There is a U shaped bar, with wine along shelves around the room, plenty of food in the counter space at the front of the bar so you can see what is... More
