They serve excellent panini here: the prosciutto is good, the pecorino is tasty, the bread will be full ane the beer is cold. This is not a tourist rip-off, but an excellent place where to have a quick lunch-to-go!

A great find on a quiet street. The place is not a restaurant so expect to serve yourself but the meat and cheese boards are excellent with a very wide wine selection. Fabolous place for lunch or aperitivo. Will definitely come back on my next trip to Florence.

You should understand the place or you could not like it. They don't serve at the table. You have to dress the table yourself. You sit down at a table and then you order at the bar. When the food is ready, you go get it to the bar yourself. Same thing for the drinks. If there are no free... More

Being a lover of meat and cheese dinners, my husband and I had to try this place. We thoroughly enjoyed the energetic vibe of the place. We were fortunate to snag a small table near the food counter. We requested a tray for two for dinner and it was amazing! The truffle spread was our favorite item, but we enjoyed... More

The quality of the food is quite good and therefore not too expensive. Also the beer is not too pricey for italian standards. I can... More

As Vegetarians we were pleased to read good reviews about this place. The order system is confusing at first but we watched the others and were quickly into the swing of things. You need to split up and let one person grab a seat (literally a small stool and tiny table in the aisle was what we managed to get)... More
