Cosy and cheap!

We had dinner in this restaurant after a very long tour of Tuscany. It was 1 minute away from our hotel. The greeting was warm and the staff is mainly young people. You could see families, young people, couples, senior people.... and lots of locals. We took a salad, seafood pasta and a steak... read more

Was walking around looking at restaurants to eat dinner. This place was very crowded so we dicide to try it. The food was wonderful. We had the Steak and Risotto. The steak was thick and cooked to perfection. The Risotto was delicious. Would definitely return.

The second visit I have made and was even better than the first, Great pasta of course and I had a fillet steak with potatoes that was even too large for me to eat, unusual, but there was still room for some excellent deserts so whatever yiou...

Picked this place for dinner as it was just around the corner from our hotel. Glad we did as the choice of menu was good and reasonably priced. The food was very good and the service very friendly. The place was very busy just after 7pm and as well as a mix of nationalities there were plenty of locals, which... More

We heard about the infamous Tuscany T-bone steak so we were on a mission to try a steak on our first day in Florence. We went to this restaurant because it was getting late and it was near our hotel. Although this place was known for its pizza, we ordered the Bistecca (fire grilled T-bone steak) and our favorite, Spaghetti... More

This was an amazing gem right next to our hotel by complete fluke. It had the trip adviser sticker in the window and looked traditional and was full of locals which is always a great sign. The food was so amazing that we eat here twice and I could happily eat here for the rest of my life. My dad... More

Had two very nice meals here. I loved the Greek salads, my husband enjoyed the steak in Chianti so much he had it both times, the fish mains were very fresh. The 2nd time we went the water had been turned off in the street but they were coping well. It has a good atmosphere and the walls are painted... More

My family and I came here twice within our 5 day stay in Florence. Our first time here was absolutely delightful. We were the only ones there as we had an early dinner that night. We ordered a pizza and a mixed grill platter for 3, and it was more than enough. The pizza was delicious, although it could have... More
