COLORFUL BOHEMIAN ENVIRONMENT WITH ART OBJECTS, SCULPTURES & FRESCOES ON THE WALLS: It feels like you are dining in an artists' studio adorned with colorful fruits, candles & fresh flowers.. A visual of bright blue, orange & maize walls are offset with weathered wooden beams & honey oak columns that keep it so warm & interesting. There is a beautiful... More

When you walk in you will find an unusual eclectic décor. The other diners appear to be regulars. The excitement in the kitchen and among the staff comes through as you order and dine. They are proud of their food and are happy to serve it to you. We started with a delicious Parma ham with burrata cheese. Both were... More

My husband and I had an amazing meal at Gargani. The menu was extensive and the wait staff was knowledgeable, friendly and extremely attentive. We started with spritzers while we mulled over the menu. With our waiter's advice, I started with a shrimp and fennel salad. It was lightly dressed on a bed of greens and delicious. My husband had...

We passed this restaurant on our way to Osteria di Giovanni on our first night. We decided to give it a try the next night and it was the best meal I had of the three nights. We had a plate of Tuscan meats followed by chicken and asparagus in a Dijon mustard sauce and spaghetti with seafood. Both were... More

Everything was great! Food, staff, atmosphere, all of it was great. The bill was a bit high but at least we were able to be seated right away and we able to have a romantic dinner. I'd return again. They had many interesting dishes I'd love to try.

it's a little eccentric in its decor - the murals are pretty wild! but it's a fun atmosphere, great food, and a friendly staff. we were seated immediately after walking in, but then again it was a weekday in february so it was off-season. i imagine that this place will get very busy during tourist season. the price is average...

We tried this funky looking restaurant by chance as close to our hotel on a very wet evening in Firenze. They kindly accommodated us although we had not booked a table and staff was nice despite being busy that night. We found the food choice a bit limited and on the expensive side with an extra 12% added to the... More

The design of the restaurant is a blast. The staff is extremely friendly and the service is outstanding. We tried the tasting menu and were not disappointed any second. A special to try is pasta with orange peal and orange juice. The presentation of the main course could be better but in general the entire dinner was outstanding.

A restaurant with a nice atmosphere, and a particular set up. Paitings on the walls and s nice statue. Very good entree. I suggest crostini toscsni, a typical local food. Steack is very good but a bit too cooked. A Fiorentina should always be cooked in the right way !! A bit expensive, is a typical trattoria to try !
