“Service could be' better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

VERY nice restaurant but we felt pressured and rushed on a wednesday lunch. Im still deciding if I should try again or not....the food (spinach ravioli, zuppa) average and probably could be' better for a place in the Tuscan region.

“Good food, better service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

We had this place recomended to us by locals. When we got there around 730 there was a line of people waiting to get in. Luckily the doors opened and there was enough space for the 5 of us. A waiter explained the menu to us and recommended the house wine and a sampler of antipasti and meats. The wine was good, the antipasty was better; the meats were great.Service was very friendly and helpful translating the menu. Also, very reasonable prices for the quality of food served.

“This is the reason I signed up to Trip Advisor!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

I have eaten at three of the best restaurants in the world and this found its way into my top 3!!!
On a family vacation with our 12 year old son the entire staff made us feel at home and like locals...

We opted for the prix fix offering and trusted our MVP waiter Alessandro would fill in the blanks.
He not only succeeded, but far surpassed our wildest expectations with the finale of a private tour of the wine cellar - certainly a treat for all of us.

This restaurant, although challenging to find is one of the top restaurants in the world and judging from the others around us they all feel the same. Houston, Texas to the right, a family from Israel,
a family from Connecticut and other world travelers all in soon to be food comas from the overwhelming flavors, sauces and herbs that define Tuscan cooking.

How lucky are we to have an experience like this and all I can do is say run, don't walk to this Tuscan gem...you will not have a single regret!!!

“Wonderful for Soaking Up Local Flavor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

The atmosphere here is great! It is something you really must experience when in Florence. Not great for vegetarians but there are still some options and wonderful pasta. Reservations are recommended.

“Simply the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

I went here for my birthday dinner with a few friends and got served family style several AMAZING courses. Definitely go hungry because it seems like it just doesn't stop. They brought out a dessert sampler with a sparkler and sang for my birthday. They even gifted my group a bottle of wine for our celebration. If you want a great experience and a lot of great food all at once - go here.
