Service was ok. Seafood was not available, so service man recommended Pasta with spicy sauce without showing alternatives. Pork was good but why the hell have I to pay 12 euro for pork only (no sauce) and 7 euro for beans as side dish. Come on! The prices are ridiculous and impertinent for food (quality and visuals) I would expect... More

a couple of blocks beyond Porta Romana and it was one of best trattorias i've been to in Florence. I had pork chop which was excellent as was the house wine. Service was very friendly and our server spoke English (for me) and spanish (for my friends) very well. Mostly Italians and fewer tourists than most restaurants in center. Very... More

We arrived at 7pm and were the first in the place. It filled up around 7.30 - much more atmosphere then. Tuscan mixed platter was very tasty. The veal was to die for although the green beans were served cold which we weren't expecting. Dessert was ordinary - cherry tart was just jam I think. It was near where we... More

We've been going to this restaurant when in Florence for over 30 years and it remains one of our favorites. Although under new ownership, the quality of the food remains high and t, this time, we even got an English speaking waiter. A little out of the way bet definitely worth the cab ride.

A small but fine traditional trattoria much frequented by Florentines too smart to overspend for simple food well prepared and true to the best florentine traditions. If they have it try the borgo scopeto red wine--outstanding.

Not in the center of town but totally worth a visit. Always packed with locals, not that easy to get a reservation. Excellent food and super nice staff. Prices are what you would expect in a Trattoria like this one, not that cheap but honest for what you get.

This restaurant was a walk from the bed and breakfast we were staying at outside of Porta Romana. The place was packed with locals so we knew we'd made a good choice. The menu changes every week and the food is plentiful and Tuscan. The staff were super as were the locals who chatted with us. The surroundings are very... More

Read about this place all over and had to visit. Was in Florence for three nights and we went here twice. Brought my 10 and 14 year old and our favorite waiter, Ivan, made them feel right at home. All the reviews are spot on. You must try the vegetable soup, which is one of my favorite things i have... More

We almost gave up trying to find this place following the Trip Advisor map. Eventually found it at No.33 - about 100m toward the city centre from its spot on the map. Glad we persisted though. Had a very good meal, in authentic Tuscan surroundings. The place is full of locals, which is always a good sign, and was packed.... More
