I visited Florence last summer and came to this restaurant. I showed up without reservation at that time, but since I was solo they had a spot for me. Looking forward to another wonderful dinner tomorrow night.

Delightful, delicious menu with sea dishes and great steak... as well as wonderful salads...the people were absolutely wonderful as was the service and the food.... definitely need reservations - ask for a view of the river.. make your dinner for around sunset... hard to beat the view of the bridge and the river at sunset.

We stopped by because of top rating on Trip Advisor, although we did not have a reservation we decided to try our luck. Upon stepping into narrow and cramped entrance I noticed lighting to be relatively dark (I personally like being able to see what I am eating). The bespectacled young lady who "greeted" us asked "How can I help... More

This is by far the most popular restaurant in Florence! We got right in at 8:00 on a Wednesday evening, although we had to sit & eat at the bar. It was well worth it. We returned the following evening & weren't so fortunate. We had to drive around for 45 mins. & couldn't even get into the waiting area.... More

A very popular place for a reason. the food was excellent, service friendly, and the prices were very good.... most dinners were around $15. Best meal of our trip. It stays booked so get a reservation. Or do what we did, get in line when it opens at 4:00 and get a seat at the bar (which was nice.... very... More

Everyone i spoke to said you've got to eat here. The staff were great and friendly. I was warned to go late as i was told they like to turn tables over quickly. I had oysters to start and they were amazing, followed by a recommendation of fish encased in crab, again several people said try it, honestly it was... More

My wife and I came here for dinner. We called about a reservation and were told they were full but we could eat at the bar. When we arrived the bar had only one seat but they have a small waiting area in the enclosed patio with three tables where we could have a drink while we waited for two... More

Cute little place. We lucked into a table. We tried the crab cake appetizer. It was decent. House salad had the most delicious dressing. My husband and I shared the scallops with pasta and marinara sauce (opted out of Alfredo). The marinara was perhaps the most delicious I have ever had!! Excellent garlic bread came with it. It didn't have... More

It was so worth my calls! Freshest halibut, a view of the river, the best service. I felt welcome and appreciated . I WILL return!
