Amazing lunch

It's a really small place but you will feel at home and all the dishes are made at the moment. The quality is amazing and the prices are really low considering that you are few minutes walk from the central square. It's worth to be here at least for a lunch during your visit in Florence.

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. The food was good, nothing spectacular but good enough for a spot of lunch on a budget in central Florence. You won't be disappointed with the food but there are better... More

We selected this place as it had a good Trip Advisor score & was an easy walk from our hotel. It did not match the reviews. It is more like a café & very basic. We ordered the spaghetti with fresh tuna - there was very little tuna and it was of the tinned variety, so not as described. My... More

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

Had amazing pasta with some wine. Very big portions and a great price. Would definitely recommend. I don't speak any Italian but got by with the waitress with a mix of Spanish and English. Will probably return.

Read the reviews on tripadvisor and as my hotel is just opposite the restaurant, decided to Try it out. Didn't fail to disappoint. I ordered a spegatti dish and my husband had the risotto. Portions were super big and We thought we would not be able to finish it but it was so good that though we were pretty full... More

We came across this place after restaurants in the adjacent market were closed. It's a small place with a cafe feel and is clearly popular with locals. We each had a pasta dish which was delicious and unbelievably cheap for the area (around 5-7 euros). We returned there the following day and weren't disappointed. Some family and friends of the...
