The best steak on the Planet

This restaurant is excellent in all respects however the steak is outstanding. The owner has a stage with a wooden table and a large piece of steak sitting on the top. It is here he slices off a piece for the customers. You will not find a better steak anywhere.

My friend was desperate to get a reservation here after reading glowing reviews in Lonely Planet and Tripadvisor. We got a booking for the first sitting at 6.30pm. It was totally packed when we arrived and we were seated at a long communal table with Americans, a family of 5 and a young couple. Funny how they sit all the... More

This was one of the best dining experiences I had in Italy. It's very small but cozy and charming, and the food is outstanding. Our favorites were the goose meat pasta (we're still talking about it a month later), asparagus flan (who knew asparagus flan was so delicious??), mushroom pasta, and, of course, the steaks. The steaks are HUGE, and... More

Wonderful family dining experience with excellent local cuisine. The staff was in good spirits and made our meal an experience, not just a dinner. Loved this place, look forward to coming back.

This was one of the best experiences and meals that we had in Italy! Reservations are necessary for this quaint, family style restaurants. The atmosphere and energy of the place is awesome! My husband and I loved the informal seating and process in which the steak is ordered, displayed, cooked and delivered. A very unique and fun experience!!! Plus the... More

and I've eaten Kobe beef in Japan! The proprietor is a showman, service is fast and efficient. Atmosphere is definitely bar. The side dishes have been an ongoing conversation among us, so it is not just about the meat. The owner serves these immense perfectly cooked Fiorentino steaks after first consulting with the table about amount. He makes the decision,... More

First, just like everyone else has said, make a reservation. The place is quite small inside and without a reservation you probably will not get in. We went in the off season, during truffle season, the steak we had was awesome, but the accompanying half mash potato/cauliflower combo covered in white truffle was awesome! I took my mother and sister,... More

This place is about two things: meat and atmosphere. If you like good big t-bone steaks, you will love this place. Of course, you need to adjust to the tight seating, limited choises on the menu and wine list and quite straightforward style of service, but those are just the heart of the experience. The value is off the chart.... More
