The lamb was ordered with a serving of "seasonal vegetables" & a portion of " French fries". The vegetables ( not sure... More

We had dinner here for two nights whilst we stayed in Florence. This rustic looking restaurant has the best cooked meat and potatoes that I had eaten in our whole 1 month away. They steaks are cooked perfectly, veal and lamb to perfection and I don't know how they get their potatoes to taste as good as they do but... More

The place is listed among the best in the area, but... 1) there are all kinds of meat in the menu (lamb, veal, pigeon, rabbit...), but only grilled beef was actually available 2) said beef is of lower than average quality, at least the Florentine steak. The fillet steak was better. 3) the dinner for two was about €100, making... More

This is my first time here as an Italian highly recommend. The steak is very very big and thick that I never ever try before. With good services, cleaning place and high quality of food. Will be there again.

We have been to this restaurant twice with groups of college students and each time it has been fantastic! It is certainly well regarded in the region and clearly a local favorite. The owner is very accommodating to large groups. We can speak highly enough about this restaurant.

A place where locals go for good food. You are made to feel right at home and part of the family. We went for dinner there twice and both times the food was outstanding. Definitely reserve a table before going.

A fine local restaurant, great food and atmosphere, many wild game offerings (rabbit, pigeon) and great traditional selections as well. Only a short drive from Florence, but well worth the trip. Dine late (certainly after 8) to get the full experience. Young children might not be comfortable with the experience but teenagers likely will.

This restaurant is a local gem! The food was so spectacular that we went for dinner one night and then for lunch the next day instead of going into Florence. You definitely need to go on an empty stomach! Couldn't recommend more!

As an Italian who used to spend my childhood in Tuscany, before moving to Australia, I was looking forward to a wholesome Tuscan meal. This place did not disappoint. My partner ordered a bistecca fiorentina as well as the sausages, whilst I really enjoyed the taglierini with porcini. Delicious and definitely delicate, not at all overwhelming, particularly if watered down... More
