Heard from friends it's a must for lunch. My biggest gripe was being treated so poorly from the waiter. Barely shown to our table. He read the menu-which was on the wall and too far for us to see-brusquely. Ribeleta was mushy and bland. Steak had too much salt and was too well done. The strangers at our table had... More

This place is amazing. They only open for lunch and the place is packed almost as soon as they open at midday. Prepare to be squashed in on crowded tables with perfect strangers. If that doesn't faze you, you'll love it. The food is outstanding value and delicious and the staff are very efficient although the pace of business doesn't... More

My partner and I waited in line for the doors to open (they only open for lunch) and were ushered in on time. You will likely have to share a table with strangers. The seats are stools. It was a great lunch experience. The servers were friendly, and it looked like the kitchen staff was having a fun time cooking... More

We ordered one bistecca(might seem a little expensive, but its worth it). Small place to taste authentic firenze food. Must try the bistecca!!

The place is crowded. You will have to share table with strangers which can be fun depends on who the strangers are. The menu is limited and it's posted on a wall. When an item is sold out, they cross it out. So the later you go, the less selection you will have. We had vegetabel soup (it's more like... More

Very very good place for lunch. We visited twice during our stay in Florence. They only open for lunch and you will have to share a table with others. Great atmosphere, great food. We tried pasta, steak, salad, pork chop and they were all very tasty. We would definitely go back when we in town again. Ciao!

Great food, great atmosphere, great service, great location, great price. One soup, fried potatoes, beef stew, pasta ragu, mixed meat plate, water, and 1/4L wine = €40.

A great place to try the bistecca and the rigatoni bolognese. The trattoria is small and warm, even though it isn't elegant or stylish. The prices are also good, as for one bistecca 1kg for 2-3 people, 2 bolognese and a salad we paid only 17 euros per person. I highly recommend it.
