One of the best meals we have had all trip. Relaxed atmosphere, fresh and delicious food, amazing service and all at a more than reasonable price! If we were here longer we would go back again and again...Every dish that came out looked amazing!

We always like to go somewhere different no matter what and argued about the decision but SO glad we went back - the 2nd night was better. A quiet place the locals seemed to frequent. Lovely rich and fresh food, simple good wine selection and patient staff willing to explain the dishes. I am not sure if the mid-aged male... More

Enjoyed a lovely meal of house specialties here. Every dish was fresh, balanced and delicious. The appetizer served in scallop shells is a must. The price is astonishingly low for the quality of the food served here. Don't be put off by the big screen TV on the wall--the food is top notch. Definitely not standard tourist fare.

Our friend took us to this restaurant in Florence run by Pasquale on a rainy night and we experienced some of the best food on our trip here. Super fresh seafood platters, delicious flatbread that comes at the beginning of every meal, smooth and bold Tuscan wine (Try the Costa di Nugola Rosso 2011), and our meal topped off with... More

This restaurant was close to our Hotel in Firenze (Hotel Bonifacio),and we got there one day we missed in our bus back route. The salad was great we ordered Nordica, Calzone frito was delicious, so was the pizza Prosciutio Funghi. We saw some very interesting seafood on the tables nearby almost all filled with local people. A shame we couldn´t... More

Not too far from our hotel, we ate here several times and everything was really great, especially the salad. The cheesecake was also to die for.

For our first night in Florence, our hotel recommended this restaurant. It was excellent. Went with my wife and 2 sons. I ordered the "Fritto calamari, gamberoni e zucchine" and never tasted anything better - ever. Excellent dessert and wine selection. The waiter spoke English very well and treated us wonderfully. We dined on the sidewalk patio and thoroughly enjoyed... More

My wife and I ate at this fantastic little restaurant twice during our stay in Firenze - it was our "home away from home." Pasquale, Jessica and staff were very friendly and happy to educate us about Italian cuisine. (They made great recommendations about the city and surrounding area too.) We tried very different dishes each time we were there.... More
