“Great family restaurant and tuscan food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

This is a multi-generation restaurant where you can actually hear the waitress say as she comes out of the kitchen: "Mom! which table ordered this dish?" and you can see the three generations running around the place.

The food is great and from what I remember, we had such a great time that we put away a whole bottle of their house-wine.

“Very pleasant Tuscan Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Warm and welcoming. Attentive service. Started with a plate of Salami and then shrimp and Risottos to follow. The best Tuscan meal we had during our stay in Florence.

“It's a family affair...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

When you ask the owner (85) and his wife (close to that) when was the restaurant opened, he answers he was born in it and got it from his grand-father. All three generations work in a beautiful and harmonious way, it's clear it's there's. All three times I went there have been blissful and children love it. The "tagliata" di bue is amazing. I didn't try the costata fiorentina (T-bone) but my children (1 for 2 obviously) went head of heel for it. I had once the Sole and it was one of best prepared one ever. Don't need anything else as the house wine too, they made a great selection there. Speaking italian obviously makes it even more enjoyable but foreigners will be made to feel at home too. Best reserve on Fridays and Saturdays. Can't wait to go back!

“Service and Food Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

4 of us went to this restaurant and the food was obviously home-cooked. The waiter was fabulous, he joked with us and his lovely elderly parents were in the background, amazing.
WOuld go back again. Great food, great service....

“Yes, Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We had dinner here, sooooo good and priced well. Give it a try. Our only objection was that the servers and owners of the restaurant did not seem happy. They were pleasant enough but I felt the energy and it was not the most happy. Food very good though and I would go back again.
