Having spent the last 2 weeks travelling through Tuscany, this is a standout for quality, fresh seafood and service. And good price, we enjoyed the fixed price specials and ate for 5 for under 100 euro with wine. This place is on the Arno but has no views and is not on the tourist track, so is easily missed. Shame.... More

This is a great restaurant. Good service, delicious fish, and it was right next to our hotel! What more could we want?

For those who do not eat red meat, here is the perfect solution. A few details could give a wrong impression: a menu printed on a plastic booklet and cheap table mats from the local outdoors market could convey a wrong first impression. The cuisine is excellent, the dishes are very well presented and the wine/liquors list is absolutely first... More

A superb fish restaurant and a million miles away from the traditional trattoria of yesterday. Very stylish, elegant restaurant on the North bank of the Arno. The fish was delicious. I had sea food couscous followed by turbot. Sara had spicy prawns followed by salt crusted bass.

We had read the reviews and was in the mood for sea food so we decided to try this one out. The restaurant was very nice, friendly staff and quite decent serving time. The food was good and probably what to expect for the price, but nothing to look back on to remember.

This place is rather expensive, but offers special lunch menu for 14€ / set. (We did not try it) Usual menu - starters around 14€, main course around 26€. Very tasty and fresh. Men waiters are good, but not very friendly - seems like they keeping the distance, supporting the high status of the place

Bravo! In a city overflowing with of ordinary food for the masses, what a lovely surprise to stumble into this gem of an oasis. The impeccable service, genuine attention, and warm ambiance and especially the deliciously high quality of the meal at welcomed prices quickly boosted this riverside restaurant into one of my favorites in Florence, if not THE favorite....

We enjoyed every dish though could not rave about anything. still it was in fact good value at dinner and is a lovely modern setting with much attention given to detail. The Falanghina white wine is quite tasty and reasonable. The Tuna was perfectly cooked and was the best main course. I would recommend the surprisingly light cheesecake dessert and... More
