Came here 3 years ago and the food was quite average after reading the reviews we decided to give it another go. Luckily they had a table when we arrived. Crostini with parma ham, artichoke and parmesan. For the main we had a meatball with roast potatoes. Amazing tomato sauce. A bottle of house wine and a very good price.... More

We walked into this restaurant after a walk around the area. We were not disappointed. It was friendly and the food was also very nice.

The restaurant was recommended by the owner of the Florence apartment we stayed in. She was a local so we tried the place. It was Saturday night and we had no reservations so we had to wait for at least 30minutes for a table. We ordered drinks while waiting. Servers were nice and actually gave us some appetizer bread. We... More

We were looking for a place to have an authentic Tuscan meal when we found this gem. It's a very unassuming, small place but luckily they had a table for us. Myself and my boyfriend went for the Tuscan tasting menu which was about €30pp and included a bottle of wine as well as the food as we thought it... More

This was our favorite meal in Italy. The food is amazing and unique.. even the simple dishes have little twists that are outstanding. The house wine was even great (though unsurprising in Tuscany). And we only had to wait 3 minutes for a table, but we got free prosecco and an apology while we waited. A perfect meal.

We had the 30 EUR menu with 4 courses (antipasti + primi + secondi + dolce) with a bottle of Chianti and water. Everything was really tasty! But beef with prosciutto and ruccola was the winner. And the service was very friendly and efficient (unlike in many other restaurants here). We decided to go back for new year's dinner. And... More

We happened to find this restaurant while wandering for a place for dinner. It was a busy saturday night, and although we didn't have reservations, they shuffled a couple of tables to accommodate and offered complementary beverages in the meantime. The staff was very friendly, and the food was very good. It's a small and charming place that's definitely worth... More

We regularly visit the gusta - osteria, panino and pizza with my family. The service is professional and fast. I recommend choosing the more authentic offers like hand made pasta with simple sauces, grilled meats and seasonal vegetables rather than fish which really is not that special at all at this location. Being situated in one of the most beautiful... More
