I can't say enough good things about this restaurant & how we were treated by Raffaele! We stumbled upon this amazing place & were immediately treated like family. Raffaele continued to bring out food that he recommended until we couldn't eat another bite. The service, food, atmosphere & friendly staff was one of the best experiences we had in our... More

Had a decent meal in a pleasant restaurant. However was annoyed, to later discover, that I was charged 6euro for what were presented as 2 complementary glasses of prosceco on arrival.

We went here during our honeymoon and the food was wonderful. The menu is in Italian but the staff helped to translate. I had amazing fresh artichokes and truffles. The meal was wonderful and traditionally Tuscan!

This is a lovely spot, with lively crowds because tables are close and in demand. Food and wine are top-notch, including pastas but also the bistecca and other meats. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Highly recommend.

Livaro was our server and his graciousness, etiquette and experience made our dinner from delightful and delicious to extraordinary! We've been coming to Florence for 3 years and we've found many great restaurants, but this restaurant swept all memories aside. Livaro helped us find our perfect wine to pair with the meal and how to decant it. It was beautiful!!... More

Our fault. We've being going to Florence for 8 Octobers in a row and know better than to frequent the obvious tourist spots. For reasons I don't remember we had lunch here. The pizza was ok, but the carpaccio starter was not. At best, it was more like a tartare. Service was not bad. Simply, too many other good places... More

This place was a few yards outside of Piazza Santa Croce and worth the extra bit of walking to avoid a queue during peak lunch hours at other restaurants. The menu had a nice variety of pizza and pastas, the food was fresh and ready quickly, and the staff was attentive and friendly. We sat outside and enjoyed people watching... More

What a wonderful afternoon! The food is great: rosemary chicken, roast beef, salads, etc. The rosemary chicken was tender and delicious. The roast beef was tasty. The salads were fresh. The service was even better. Zaccaria, our waiter, was delightful, helpful, and super friendly.

I was not impressed by this venue. They lost one star when I had to ask four times for a glass of red wine. The seating was comfortable and the decor nice. The pizza was decidedly mediocre for Italy. The pizza crust was floppy and messy. Does not seem to be true Italian style pizza. The toppings were good, but... More
