Had an evening meal. The Antipasta Buchetta is absolutely fantastic , enough for 3 hungry men. The host was really good and explained the whole menu. The steak was great ( although a little rare for us) and the wine was reasonable at €20 per bottle. A taste of real Tuscan chartcuterie!

We chose to go here purely on the back of Tripadvisor reviews and weren't disappointed. There was a nice mix of tourists and locals alike. We chose to share the Steak Firenze style and it was nice to see the scales being brought to the table to weigh our meat. When cooked this was inredibly tasty and tender and cooked... More

I visited on Valentine's night with my girlfriend. The staff were very welcoming and helpful and talked us through the menu in great detail. They spoke very good English so there were no language barriers whatsoever. The food that we decided on was beautifully presented and tasted amazing... The steaks and sauces are gorgeous! We weren't rushed at all and... More

Great place. Great food We visited on a Friday night without a reservation. Got a table near the door. Restaurant was very full and lively. The place had a great atmosphere with a live 2 piece band. Would definitely come again.

We visited the restaurant on Valentine's evening. The reception was welcoming and the ambience cosy. We had bruchetta to begin which was tasty and a generous portion. My main course was grilled vegetables with melted cheese - delicious, but very rich and unfortunately I was unable to eat much. Unless you have a big appetite, I would recommend choosing one...

Not far from Firenze's biggest piazza - Santa Croce - you will find this charming restaurant in via de' Benci. The owner, Maurizio, and his staff really knows how to make you feel good and you will have one of the best meals served in this beautiful city! The atmosphere is relaxed, lots of locals (which is always a good... More

Had such a lovely meal here. You get loads of food, so would advise going easy on the sides with steak. The steak was wonderful, very unique. The meat platter was also delicious. The staff were lovely, very chilled and encouraged us to take our time. Think we were there for about 3 hours! Homemade lemoncello is also not to... More
