Good beer & FREE nibbles!

Charming bartender/owner who talked to us in fluent English, explaining Florence in terms of London neighbourhoods. Had a lovely evening.

I think that each review depends on a good or bad luck. I came here, because I saw so many good reviews and in the end it was really disappointing. So we had a bad luck. This guy, Luigi, he was really nice. First of all, you can't get what you want from menu. There are so many meals, but... More

This will be our first stop when we return to Florence! The location is great, convenient to Ponte Vecchio, and in an authentic and artistic neighborhood. The outdoor dining was our favorite and we loved it so much here we visited a few times during our stay in Florence. The owner Luigo and the service provided were sincere and attentive,... More

Three of us stopped here for lunch today. The food was marginal at best. I had a pizza that was chewy. I would not recommend this place, and I am puzzled about why it has a Trip Advisor "Certificate of Excellence."

A small little bar out of the city centre that is the perfect place to enjoy something to eat, a coffee, an amaro or even a chat with the friendly owner. Authentically Italian and relaxed atmosphere!

Luigi is absolutely lovely. He took the time to speak to us about Firenze, the local businesses, meal times, among general conversation. A very kind and friendly man! The food was made fresh in front of us, absolutely delicious. We had the Bruschetta and a sandwich and plan to come back on our next tour of Firenze! Grazie, Luigi!
