Great food, table outside, really looked after us, and best cheesecake ever. Reasonable price. We booked a table earlier that day it did get busy later. Close to the centre just across the river. Go, its worth it, best meal we had during our stay.

In fact, it was the only bad experience of our entire trip! We were ignored for the longest time before our order was taken. The waiters were brusque, and one kicked my chair every time he walked by. The food was inedible -- some very fishy pasta(think old fish) -- and a veal dish that tasted like cold sliced lunch... More

We found this by chance,and we were not disappointed. Though do be careful when ordering, the fish comes with nothing!! So order sides. Outside seating area is beautifully kept but you are crammed in, great to get to know your fellow dinners and it does add ironically to the evening. Would I eat here again? Yes definitely when we next... More

Yeah, unfortunately another touristic trap.... The small tables are so close to each other that even talking looks unconfortable. They moved us from a table to another and when they brought us the glass we were using, they swapped them. Absolutely no manners in services...the waiters were running like crazy making you feel like a continuous emergency situation, yelling to... More

Yes, the service was a dash on the cold side, but that seems to be the general trend in Italy as a whole. We were given a great table, the food was EXCELLENT, and that is not always easy to find. Best steak and risotto we've had in ages.

We showed up at this restaurant around 9 pm on a Saturday without a reservation. We were told to wait for a table as the place was packed.We were ushered inside and got a tiny table near the kitchen but that was fine, after all we didn't book. The food was amazing! and I would have given Trattoria del Carmine... More

We had lunch on Easter day in this ice typical restoro situated on Piazza Carmine. Very good food with many daily specials. Service was not very nice but still professional. House wine was very good.

Tried this place as it was close to where we were staying. We went in late afternoon to book a table and returned at the appointed hour. There was only one table occupied so we went to a vacant table only to be ushered into the back room where 2 tables were occupied by tourists. Is it me or do... More

We had been recommended this restaurant by a friend who makes regular trips to Florence and were not disappointed. Reasonably close to the Ponte Vecchio but off the more travelled of the tourist streets, its primary clientele is local, so one feels that one is having a genuinely Florentine dining experience. The atmosphere was vibrant, the food delicious, based on... More
