A great restaurant in a super location. Lovely food - go with the specials each day - and great wine. All very reasonably priced. Friendly waiters with excellent English. Enjoyed it so much we cancelled several other reservations to go there instead.

Got here just before 6 when they were still serving off the lunch menu. No English on the menu but the waiter was very accommodating and translated everything for us. Lunch portions were a decent size yet inexpensive so we tried a few different things. Very enjoyable. Definitely go back.

We stopped here for lunch after a recommendation by our hotel. And what a find! A quiet little street with one or two other food places. A great menu. Lovely little tables (in the shade!) Our waiter was really friendly, and very patient with our appalling Italian attempts! Drinks (local beers chosen by the waiter) were served quickly. The food... More

With a complete menu for just 12€ that included primi, secondi (with contorni) and water I had the opportunity to savour an amazing risotto (as primi) and an also amazing roast beef with vegetables. The staff was also very attentive and friendly!

Fantastic little restaurant in a side street away from the hustle and bustle. Simple food and not ostentatious. One of the tastiest mixed grills I've ever had and even the cheapest chianti was wonderful. A perfect end to a fantastic city break

From pasta to tribe, from salads to t-bone steak, delicious! As desert the best cheesecake ever! And just over 100€ for the four of us!

I have had a great chicken breast. There was no problem of changing the salad into potatoes. My sister has had a buffet for 8€ including water.

Neighborhood Profile
Pitti
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
