Sisters In Florence Again.....

My sister and I treated ourselves to 9 glorious days in Florence, Italy last June of 2014. Every where we ate was delectable. We enjoyed Il Parione so much and our waiter Otto that we ate there many nights. We had fresh Pizza near our hotel, NH Porta Rosa and of course another helpful and... read more

Small restaurant and family run with friendly attentive staff and the best consistently good food. Would return to Florence just for the roast and lightly smoked duck! Cannot praise it highly enough

We made dinner reservations in advance but the waiter seemed surprised when we showed up. (Party of two). I was concerned with my casual attire but it worked out fine. No one frowned at me. They took so long to ask what we would like to drink. I had to call the waiter over to get the wine started. It's... More

Dear Wendy, thank you for calling the excellent food with top marks(!) and had spoken respectful and courteous service. I want to remind that we are a gourmet restaurant then we prepare your own meals at the time and this takes longer. Why do not you told immediately that for you it was a long time? I explained you without... More

We love Italian food. ALL italian food. Oliviero gave us a creative, unique approach to the usual menu. It was not the same as everywhere else!

A last minute booking as we couldn't get an answer from the restaurant we had planned to eat in, and this one was mentioned in the AA guide to Florence. Tucked away down a side street near the Arno, easily walkable from everywhere central. At first glance the interior looked a little dated, with cloth bench seats and dark wood... More

We stumbled into this restaurant while venturing along small streets looking for such a hidden jewel. The restaurant is open for lunch and that may be a new thing. It is open from 12 to 2:30 for lunch and the menu is small but very reasonable for this class of restaurant. The food was wonderful, the service equally good, and... More

We stumbled across this restaurant after a long day of sight seeing. The reviews and menu at the door peeked our interest. Slightly concerned we were not dressed appropriately and it being a Friday evening without a reservation we decided to give it a try. The staff was very welcoming ( even if we were in tee shirts and sandals)... More

The service was perfect. The restaurant was beautiful and the food was fabulous. I had duck which was perfect. My wife had a risotto with asparagus and shrimp which was delicious. The burrata appetizer was delicious as was the fish tartare.

My wife and I were recommended to visit this restaurant since it was across the street from our hotel. We are glad we did. The food was amazing. It was all fresh and tasted amazing. We both had pats that was some of the best we had in Italy. We also had an amazing Tiramsu desert. Overall the ambiance was... More

I undertook a little research and choose this restuarant for my gf's birthday. We reviewed the menu prior and agreed it looked considered and professional but mostly exciting. We were not dissapointed. On top of that the service was flawless. We had all of the courses and we were delighted. (qty wise it was a lot for her although i... More
