Best seafood restaurant in Florence!

Tried the seafood pasta and it's amazing! And the grilled Seabass is a must try. The atmosphere and ambience was just right, with light Indie jazzy music in the background.. They serve you with a little glass of champagne as part of starter. Friendly service, is one of the best ever in Florence... read more

A really friendly restaurant with an excellent menu of wonderfully fresh fish dishes. Not in the swankiest area of Florence but well worth the trip. My starter of Linguini with clams was exceptional as was my main of grilled sea bass. The staff were charming and efficient.

Very enjoyable dining experience at this fish restaurant. Friendly welcome and efficient service throughout, attentive without being overbearing. Quaint, 'themed" interior features include nets hanging from the ceiling and ocean maps on the walls. Wide range of dishes on offer. Particularly delicious was the stewed octopus. Some may say that it's a bit expensive, but not every dish will break... More

The restaurant was busy when we visited. Although the food was good we did have to wait a long time in between courses. Reasonable value for money

We were greater warmly with the complimentary glass of Prosecco. We split a first course of risotto al mare; split a segundo of frittura calamari, gamberi, and verdure (we had intended to... More

As a meat eater I was a little sceptical about this visit but once there I was so glad we went, we even returned the next night! The welcome from the staff was lovely and not overly obsequious, as it often is in tourist restaurants. From the start it was obvious that this was a quality place and that went... More
