This place is so unassuming yet the food is fantastic. We waited about 15 min after getting there around 1 pm and we were seated at a family table with another group of four. The first thing I noticed was that there were a lot of Italians eating there -- a good sign! We ordered the ribollita soup, the panzanella... More

We got here at 12.20 and our name down and were told 20-30 mins we crossed to the market and came back after a dribnk. Worth the wait. We were a 3 and shared a table with a local. We had roast chicken, pork chop, tripe and spinach, with a half of red and water, for 35 euros. Great atmosphere... More

It's a very small place and their food was amazing, with good price, and the service was nice as well. They have a daily menu, we ordered panzanella, the pasta of the day and a Bistecca Fiorentina. Everything was great!

It was great food 20 years ago still great now. It has gotten popular but still kept to its roots. Great lunch limited menu and great prices.

very busy restaurant seemingly full of locals & tourists alike. Menu seems to be changed often, and I saw some people bringing in their own meat to be cooked. Very worthwhile.

This is a tiiny restaurant with a number of wooden tables and stools! Tables are shared-not exclusive. The prices are really great. Crowded conditions- but a unique experience with the best food I have ever had in Italy. Now, I would say, there are maybe 10 tables-15 tables at best. If you want to get in right away, come early!... More

A hidden gem, queues to enter- it's so popular with tourists and locals alike. Amazing atmosphere with delicious food. I couldn't recommend it enough, one of the highlights of our trip to Florence!

Visited the trattoria for lunch on our last day in Florence (what a pity!) and it was an awesome meal here. We reached at 12.15 pm and the place was already filled to the brim, bustling with activity. We left our name and were told to return in 30 minutes. We went off and returned to find that our turn...

Buzzing right from the get go! Food is decent, hearty traditional fare, nothing too spectacular but it's definitely a lovely dining experience!
