This restaurant was a great find! The food was distinctive and the service was excellent (above par) and personable. It is located on a busy ave and the outside noise was sometimes a distraction for conversation. I would highly recommend this establishment.

A very nice catch by tripadvisor. Anti-pasti plate is very satisfying. We ate 2 different pasta dishes which are also great. An amazing waitor. This is more than enough for me.

Proprietor was warm and friendly helping us navigate our dietary restrictions in English and making gentle recommendations along the way. The risotto, ravioli and pepino were at the top of our list of dishes while in Italy. After a few nights of disappointing tourist fare we were happy to escape the mediocrity and enjoy our meal.

Visited both as part of small and large groups. Equally good experience on all occasions. Fantastic selection of high quality food and wine. Can't recommemd the antipasto, risotto and pasta highly enough. Great atmosphere and very friendly and professional staff without exception. So welcoming! No doubt will return when next in Florence!

Arrived on a rainy day. Service was excellent. The Florentina Steak was the best we had in Italy. They weigh the steak before cooking. The Steak was perfectly cooked. Crispy surface and juicy inside. Also had the pasta but was a bit disappointed. Will definitely back again for the steak
