This restaurant/cafe is a perfect place for a delicious Italian lunch. We asked for a platter which contained breads, olives, pickles, cheeses and meats. It looked incredible. There was a good selection of wines and beers and the staff were friendly and helpful.

The food was great, the experience was great. It was packed then we went there but the line moved fast. So make sure you read over the chalkboard menu and be ready. They were helpful when needed to be. It seemed the youth really liked this place. I have photos to share where you can see there isn't a large... More

Close to Palazzo Vecchio you will find this unpretentious place. The two attendent girls were very friendly and showed us all the options , you get your food at the balcony and go to the street or one of the few places to sit. Very good and fun place to eat, with lots of options , great prosciuttos and wines... More

A perfect place to try some local meat, wine and cheese. Since we didn't know what to order, the man behind the counter just ask what we would like - lunch or appetizers and served the food with some sauces made of dried tomatoes and artichoke. Great taste, excellent price. Highly recommend this place.

Small, cramped seating, but it makes for a lively fun atmosphere. Great meats and cheeses (we were not crazy about the spreads). Wonderful wine recommended to pair with our food. Friendly, attentive service. Would come here for lunch again and again.

I did not want to review this Place I was afraid that it would become as touristy and crowed as that other place down the street and thereby lose some of its authenticity - or make it difficult to get a seat. However it is now too late and the word is out so I must add my two cents.... More

Perfect for a light lunch or dinner. Smallish location with around 8-10 tables, so you may have to wait for a seat (or eat standing up at the bar). Staff is very friendly and the restaurant was filled mainly with locals. My husband and I shared a "mixed board" for two, which came with a variety of bruschetti, spreads, cured... More

Want to try the best of Tuscany? Hams, soups, bread and a wide range of huge wines? Choose this place. Everything is made as a typical tuscanian "osteria", the music, the walls, the chairs. But it's not a place for tourists, it's a place for lovers of good food and wine. Taste their "tagliere", cheeses and hams of great quality.... More
