Based on the many excellent reviews, we had made reservations for the second to last night of our trip to Florence and loved our meal so much, we skipped any of the great number of other restaurants and ate here again on our last night. Our server was Fidan, from Kosovo, one of the most friendly and helpful we have ever had, he even joined our table for a few minutes to chat. The fresh mozzarella and prosciutto as appetizer was heavenly, and entrees such as beef stew and pappardelle with duck ragu were sublime. The second night, everything looked good on the menu again and my wife was unable to choose, so Fidan offered to surprise her with dinner; she ended up with an off-menu item, veal saltimbocca, tasted great. The entree prices were most reasonable, 13-18 euro, and wine/beer in the 3 euro range, total meals for our party of three only 80-90 euro, a true bargain for the quality. The restaurant is small (and parties of two get seated with other parties of two at one table) and our reservations were for 9:30 and 9:45 but the tables were worth waiting for. No reason to go anywhere else when in Florence, but call way ahead to get in.
