Ate here first night in Venice. Place is huge. But despite this, food was solid. Large menu. Attentive service. Friendly owner at front desk. Cozy atmosphere 1/2 floor down from street. Not cheap, but reasonable given quality of the food. Would go back without reservation.

Friendly welcome even though we did not reserve a table, but maybe in January this is not that much needed. The bread, they brought, was without taste...

Excellent food, from the mushroom crostini to the osso buco and breaded chicken. The waiters were super friendly and the food superb. Don't miss this restaurant if you are in Florence!

This restaurant is an amazing experience. The food is divine, all fresh pasta, and it's perfection! The ambient is very welcome, the waiters very nice and english speakers. The wines... Are something else. All the options and they are really good also for your wallet.

During several stays in Florence we passed this restaurant time after time on bus route 6. After two years we stopped by last week. It was absolutely one of the finest meals ever. We were welcomed like family. It was so good we went back within two days for another fine meal.
