My wife and I noticed this restaurant on our evening g walk and decided to give it a try. We had a mixed salad with chicken divided between the two of us since it was large enough. The salad had lots of chicken and a variety of salad vegetables that was otstanding. We then tried two of the spaghetti courses.... More

This is a small (most likely family run Bistro), a stone's throw from the San Lorenzo Cathedral. The portions are huge and very reasonably priced given its central location.

great fresh meal for incredible price you will hardly find somewhere else in the very center of Florence. I love their spaghetti allo scoglio (the sea food). actually any pasta is always good as well as their tagliata with rucola and grana. I also appreciate that it is a family business that works like a well oiled machine. all thumbs... More
