What a lovely place to enjoy a Florentine dinner. Ate there three times. Recommended to me by my hotel staff. Insulata, grilled speck, ribolitti, patate and porcinni mushroom soup, formaggio and chocolate tarte, house wines, fresh and warm biscotti with vin santo....American food will never be the same.

Very nice meal, excellent hospitality and service. The "cave" downstairs is historic and intimate. Great for families as well.

We had lunch there and arrive just in time as it got full up quickly. My husband had a delicious chickpeas and faro cream wit porcini mushroom. It was rustic and delicate at the same time. The we both had rigatoni with wild boar that were fantastic. Plenty of wine choice. Typical osteria feeling and perfect for a refuelling stop... More

We stumbled across this Osteria one evening as we were wandering around. Mostly local people eating here. Great quality food. Very pleasant and helpful staff. Many local dishes - try the cavolo nero and linguine if you like cabbage(!) steak good here too

We had a meal that was very, very good. Both of our pasta dishes were new to us but although just a few ingredients were used, the favour was amazing. Despite just ordering a pasta we had the same fast, friendly service as people who were eating multi coursed meals. The people next to us were having the Florentine steak... More

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
