Good food with good service in Florence! Tasty dishes and fair prices for Italian standard. We found this restaurant by trip advisor and found exactly what had been reported.

My family and I were in Florence for the first time and didn't quite know where to go to have lunch. We got lost in the streets of this city and then we came across this place and we really liked it! The food is great as is the service, prices are a bit high but definitely great value for... More

This was one of the highlights of a 3 week tour of Italy. We stumbled upon it after an evening of walking and what a fabulous find it was. I had the rabbit with pine nuts and olives and it was one of my most favourite meals of our trip. The waiters were extremely helpful in translating the menu for... More

When we got late one night (11.30 pm) on a weekday and most restaurants were closed, this restaurant accommodated despite them preparing to close for the day. They treat each customer as special. We ate here twice and loved the food and service. Though menu is in Italian, the waiter, Mattie was patient and explained every dish we enquired about.... More

On our last night in Florence, our plan was to hike up to the Piazzalle Michelangelo to watch the sun set and the lights of the city come on, then have dinner. We asked the desk clerk at our hotel for a recommendation and he sent us to Osteria Antica Mescita at the bottom of the walk in the cozy... More

After being rejected by the local pizzeria for no reservation, we sought out to find something else. Blessing in disguise - pow, pow, POW - Entrée, main and dessert were fantastic. Bellississimo. Best cheesecake I've ever tried and the Ribollina was stunningly flavourful. Great service, well priced drinks, free water. Very happy!

After spending the morning fighting the tourist horde, near the Bargello Museum, we couldn't wait to return to Oltrarno, the other side of the river where it is way less crowded and touristy. Unfortunately, we also decided to try the famously popular walk up to the Piazzale Michelangelo and San Miniato for the view, and we found ourselves following a... More

After trekking up to see the city overview we were ready for a nice lunch and OAMSN did it for us. My salad was delicious, the house red was very good and the service was spot on.
