I was visiting Florence with a group of 4 people and we chose this restaurant over others. I ordered the Parmesan Halibut and a side of clam chowder. My friend ordered a cup of coffee and it was brought out wrong with no spoon to mix her cream. Then my pepsi tasted off and I knew that the food we... More

People were packed into this small restaurant and so we had a table on the back patio which even with heaters and blankets was very cold. There were at least 4 servers though friendly were slow. Food ranged from ok to good nothing about the experience would make me say I had to come back again. $50 for dinner for... More

They've added breakfast, which is nice, but after 2 visits I've yet to get an omelet that's not brown and rubbery. The 2nd time I ordered it "moist" but it was as brown and dry as ever. Otherwise, it has great potential as a brunch spot; nice atmosphere, interesting choices. Haven't tried it for dinner.

Myself and 4 others called to this restaurant for dinner at around 7pm. It didn't appear to be too busy with a couple of empty tables near the door. We stood inside the doorway and we're completely and actively ignored by staff. I tried twice to get the attention of two staff (a middle aged woman and a younger man... More

The title says it all! This was a perfectly prepared crab omelet with lobster sauce. The 2 egg omelet was just right, the crab was plentiful, the fontina cheese was oozy, and the lobster sauce was rich but light. The thick grilled artisan bread, grapes and blueberries rounded out a perfect brunch. We sat outside in cool, breezy weather, viewing... More

If you don't mind being ignored when you come through the door, if you don't mind waiting almost an hour for your meal and you don't mind eating pizza that is barely warm, then this is the place for you. We arrived after lunch hour, it was a Friday, we have had dinner here and even though again the wait... More

I had a wonderful gluten-free pizza, which I watched being prepared before my own eyes. The chef handled my allergy very seriously, using clean utensils and washing his hands. The pizza was delicious, and the gluten-eaters I was with enjoyed it too. In fact, everyone at our table enjoyed their dishes, and the setting was lovely. I would certainly dine... More

cranberry mimosa and a super delicious scramble with meats and spinach. Yum ! The waiter was the nicest guy and we ate outside in the fabulous morning air. It was a perfect great morning.
