Intimate dining experience

A wonderfully warm and friendly bistro. You need to have reservations as the place is small. The writers clearly enjoy their work and want you to enjoy your meal too. The artichoke salad is great, and you can watch them make it before your eyes. Pappardelle with duck ragu is excellent, but the... read more

I am echoing what's been said here! One of the dishes we had was the best pasta we've every had. it was using pasta called paccheri with creamy zucchini and safron sauce and it was incredible as was spaghetti artichoke. They use the fresh ingredients that's in season change menu accordingly. As for dessert, Rasberry tiramisu was fantastic as well.... More

I had dinner here a few weeks ago and while the main dishes were absolutely lovely, it was the dessert that really did me in. Millefoglie with vanilla gelato for an amazing take on ice cream cake. Definitely recommend this place but be sure to make a reservation! It was packed and I saw a few people turned away at... More

Came here with some friends and had heard (and then saw) that it's almost impossible to get in without a reservation. The atmosphere was great, a tiny packed little place with very friendly servers. For food we split some antipasti and I had the friend beef which was simple yet very good. Perhaps a little underwhelmed given expectations but I... More

All the positive reviews are well-warranted. The food here is worth the weeks in advance needed to book a table. The restaurant is actually quite small, but that only adds to the cozy genuine atmosphere. Staff was attentive and lively, constantly cracking jokes with our table and helping us take photos. I highly recommend a visit here.

We ate here on a recommendation from an Italian friend and were not disappointed! This is a small and intimate restaurant that has a homely feel but is also vibrant and full of energy. Our table was right by the bar where we could watch all of the antipasti being prepared which was great to watch and certainly got you... More

Another one of our favourites in Florence! Believe all the good reviews on TripAdvisor as this place is superb! Atmosphere - cosy & friendly Food - excellent, traditional Florentine cooking. Pesto pasta starter & artichoke with cheese was delicious. Homemade raspberry tirimisu was outstanding. Location is fantastic...just off Piazza Signoria & very close to Uffizi Gallery. Reasonably priced for the... More
