Went hear on a recommendation of a friend. It was FABULOUS! Charming atmosphere, off the beaten tourist path, but in a safe area. Owner was very accommodating and service was excellent. Food was outstanding! If you are tired of the traditional pizza and pasta, then you must go here. It was the best meal we had in Italy by far!... More

The food was great! Our main courses were baked sea bass, a filet steak, a lamb dish and wild boar. The potatoes were fantastic! The appetizer was fried scallops with tomatoes. Everything was uniformly wonderful and the service was warm and friendly.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel. We found the food to be undistinguished, but the service was slow and impersonal, to the point where it verged on disrespectful. I would not recommend eating here, since there surely must be nearby places that offer better service, if not better food, as well.

Having eaten here tonight we feel sorry for the tourists who eat not great food around the tourist sites. On a quiet street you are greeted with pleasure and the owner is patient to let us try our Italian. Wonderful scallop appetizer, beef an a wonderful salty lamb disf all served with roasted potatoes to absorb the sauce. We did... More

We was (family with 2 kid) only walking on the street and see from outside a typical italian restaurant. We went into and it was fully crowded, but we were waiting for a place. And it was the best choice from us. We had got the menu, but we cannot choose, because everything seems to be very delicious, so we... More

This is the best meal we've had in Florence so far. We ordered the scallops and goat's cheese salad for starters and they were delicious and different from the usual starters you'll find in most restaurants. For main dish, we shared a massive T-bone steak (1kg with bone in) that came with baked potatoes. We ordered medium-well, but because the... More

We went here on a recommendation from our hotel (Il Villiano) and has such a lovely (air conditioned meal)! The service was as outstanding as the food. I get the feeling the munu will change sesonally so i ambsure whatever they offer will be very good. I can easily see us going back there while we are in Florence.

We had the ravioli with cinnamon, pear and pecorino, and the wild boar stew with polenta. Both were amazing, as was the chocolate and hazelnut cake for dessert. My sister had the risotto with saffron, zucchini and king prawns which was nice but not exceptional. Service was very good they were just so busy you had to wait a liitle... More

Though small and away from the hubbub of the city center, this restaurant is a must if you visit Florence. Also a must: the traditional Fiorentina, which is 1kg of meat that is served for two (the weight of the bone is included, so in the end there are maybe 600-700g of meat left to eat) at a price of...
