Very hip place with amazing antipasti. We got quite a large charcuterie board for only eur 5 per person + A bottle of Syrah from the shelf for only eur 18. Highly recommendable.

This place is just amazing. We were a group of 6 and had no clue as to how to order but the staffs were very helpful. They put together a board full of meats, cheeses and breads. The meats were fresh and just delightful. This is a must visit place!

We had lunch here as the #1 trip advisor recommendation 100m away had a long queue out the door. Friendly staff, quality food, a place to sit and a great vibe make this place. We were both able to rest our weary feet and enjoy lunch. Well done to the owners!

This was my favorite place to eat in Florence! They make amazing Tuscan sandwiches with quality ingredients. You get to decide what to put on your sandwich, but they definitely know what's best! I came here all three days I was in Florence. Tried their sandwiches and platters, and both were fantastic!
