“Excellent spuntini”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

Lovely little hole in the wall with tasty Tuscan treats -- a bit pricey, but worth it if you aren't staying somewhere with a kitchen and market access -- and great wines; good service, too.

“Best wine bar in Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

I love going to this bar. I take all my out of town friends here and go a lot with just my husband. The food is always exceptional. We always order the whipped cod after indulging in a plate of prosciutto and cheese. The wine list is selective and delicious. I've never had a bad glass there, unlike some other local wine bars.

I just found out they serve brunch with bagels, so will have to go back on a Sunday morning.

“The most AWFUL AND SLOW SERVICE EVER”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

The location is intimate and warm, the food really delicious and elaborate, but the service AWFUL and r-e-a-l-l-y slow. I mean, really slow, not kidding.
They just DON'T CARE. The owner is SO rude and disrespectful, he's the chef as well, he just has ONE waitress, and he will leave you waiting forever without even apologize. These people need to learn good manners first. It seems like they don't want to work at all, I swear they were complaining because people were asking for food!
We were shocked. PLUS: the check! Seriously?!?!
