Likely one of the best meals that we had in all of Italy. The hosts go out of their way to make you feel welcome and explain everything on the menu. Quality of ingredients is superb and preparation is 5 star. We especially liked the fact that we could eat excellent pasta dishes and expertly prepared Tuscan steak in a... More

A brusque waiter could be ignored but the food is median and the wine list is unimaginative. cynically the wine list had no vintages so value was hard to discern. Plates we tried were good without being great (the lasagne was tasty but pre-prepared and twice cooked). Hard to preserve integrity in such a tourist spot but this just fails.... More

Florence is great for antipasto and we had the best antipasto of our whole trip at this cafe. Great selection of meats and the mozzarella was almost like cream. We also particularly liked the chutneys that the dish was served with. It was something we hadn't been served anywhere else. It's a few minutes walk from the main tourist trail... More

I had a really great experience coming here, and I'm glad that searching for a restaurant on yelp led me and my friend here. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful when I was wrestling with what to order and recommended a fabulous bottle of white wine and veggie appetizer. I'd highly recommend anyone to come here! Thanks to Maurizio... More

My husband, brother and I had dinner at this restaurant on Sunday, July 28th. My husband ordered the pene a la buchetta which was a unique spin on a tomato sauce ( and delicious). The sauce was fragrant, the pasta was al dente and I couldn't quite put my finger on it but there was a unique spice or herb... More

The food and atmosphere here was really good. Easy to navigate as it is near Ponte Vecchio. We ask the waiter for recommendation and the food was good, the carbonara (€11) was exceptionally good. The waiter is friendly too. Very different to the ones we had before. The cream is not too overwhelming, just right. We had tiramisu for dessert,... More

Definitely on the pricier side but truly worth it. My family and I were in the area for a while and after walking into a couple booked restaurants we were sure this one would be too. Luckily they sat us right away and man were we glad. The portion sizes are fair and quality is incredible. They serve very Tuscan... More

After recommendations from Tripadvisor we decided to give it a try and God was it worth it. The mixed appetizer offered the best Burrata cheeze we have ever eaten, mind blowing ham and sausages and fantastic old dry cheeze with honey, pure heaven. Wine was delicious. Our kids got the handmade spaghetti bolognese and the gnocci, both dish were great.... More
