“Food as theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The two open ovens - one for pizzas and one for the traditional beef were great for atmosphere. I loved the nut ravioli and the veal dishes. Pleasant people and suitable for families.

“Poor service and poor foods/price ratio”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

A tipical "trattoria", but service and food are under the standards for this price level.. We need to ask for bread, we need to remember for the vegetables that arrive when we ended our dish.. Not a great precentation for this level of price.

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Loved the variety on the menu, and the fact that it was a bit more "off the beaten path". Service was friendly and efficient, and it was entertaining to be able to watch the chef prepare the meal. (I highly recommend the panna cotta!)

“Excellent meal - excellent value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Ate in this restaurant on the 3 days we were in Florence, we were staying in the hotel Alessandra down the road. We had 3 very good, varied meals accompanied by a reasonably priced very acceptable chianti classico! My husband had the fillet steak at 18 euros and was very happy, think previous reviews may be referring to the florentine steak at 4 euros for 100 g which is a more basic cut and priced accordingly - a florentine staple and speciality locally?! Pasta and pizza were also excellent. Seemed to be a regular local haunt as well as tourists (mainly American as with our hotel).

“Average and small portions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

Very average, the pork ribs were not properly cooked. Meat with asparagus was good. In general I was expecting more. Their stars at the door didnt correspond with the current one in the web.
