it's not a restaurant…but good food!

They make a point of telling everyone they are not a restaurant - they don't have a restaurant license, but are a "deli". I don't care. They have good food at a very reasonable price point. You have to be wiling to share one of the few tables at the back, or stand outside. My first visit, I got... read more

You want to be easily seated, you like clean wall/ surrounding or hate messy fast food ? Don't go there ! But that would be a pity because the team is young, nice and the food is good and if you skip the sandwich and take the time for a board with cheese and cold cuts that would be an... More

When I read the reviews here I was excited to get to know this place. But when I arrived, I was a little disappointed. Small, with pub face, two or three tables that barely give to two people. Lives crowded with people on the sidewalk, eating standing. Good food, is undeniable, and cheap too. But it is an environment for... More

Not for everybody, but for us best to eat during the day. Very relaxed, but kind and correct personnel. Best value for money.

Outstanding 'board' lunch - 4 selections of delicious meats, cheeses breads and a host of accruements. The 'house' wine was well selected. A relaxed and memorable luncheon with charming counter service.

Searching Tripadvisor we found this restaurant was rated very high in Florence for serving prosciutto and cheese. The rating was well deserved. The food was great and the price was very reasonable. The meat and cheese boards are the must order. The restaurant is tiny and packed with hanging cured meats. There was lovely Italian music playing in the background... More

We went here due to the high review from trip advisor. The place was packed and we had to line up to get in. We ordered the most basic bun+ham+cheese. The ham tasted good but the bun was cold and dry. I am not sure if this thing is supposed to be eaten toasted? Anyway, it was good to check... More

This is a lovely little spot where we stopped by for a drink and couldn't resist getting the meat and cheese board and seeing it on another table. The wine was 2.50 euro each and the meat board 5 euro person -- a great deal! The board had all kinds of meats, cheeses, olives, sun-dried tomatoes etc... a solid snack... More

We were ready for lunch on our day trip to Florence and weren't sure where to eat. We found this gem on my Trip Advisor App and got there at 12:45 right before the crowds. We each had a prosciutto sandwich and wine, which were very tasty and reasonably priced. We sat outside and enjoyed people-watching. This is the place... More
