We found this place by accident while looking for another trattoria we'd read about. We had our Thanksgiving dinner here and it was a great alternative to turkey and stuffing. It's a small, seemingly family run trattoria that got more packed as the night went on. They had a 2 course menu with wine for under 15 euro. We got... More

As any traditional trattoria it is only open for lunch and dinner, the place is full of Florentines every day. Freshly made Tuscan dishes, well located with good value for money, highly recommended.

We found this place in the rough guide. It's a 10 minute walk or so from the cathedral area and frequented mainly by locals when we were there. We ate from a fixed price menu for 14.50 euros each including wine. We had starters of mixed antipasti and mains of veal and pork with a side dish of salad. Bread... More

After having to spend more than 30€ a head in Florence to get decent food, this was a welcome surprise on our last day. It's not haute cuisine but it's tasty and they serve until 3:30, something Spaniards will appreciate! Friendly service.

Went here a few weeks ago with my boyfriend. As everyone said, this place is a great find for cheap eats in Florence. For 15€ you get an appetizer, first course, second course, dessert/coffee and a carafe of vino. It wasn't the absolute best place we ate, but it was plenty tasty and again, your dollar stretched a long way.... More

If you just want to eat cheap in florence is a good choice. The pasta was good, the peas were bad and the roasted potatoes weren't fresh.Only for the price of 14.5euro per person you should think to go otherwise it wasn't one of my favorites.

The simple place at first site leaves room for a extremely tasteful food when you get served. Traditional Italian restaurant, small with great cost x benefit. Strongly recommended for a quick and good meal.

It's a great place. Friendly staff and wide range of selection even though it is a fixed menu. You can come back again and again and taste different things. Most of all, great value for money.
