“Do delicious we went 3 times!! Nov. 2011”
So good I don't even know where to begin. I found it while wandering around shopping and went to get my husband to bring him. This place is not what you would expect. Even the name is different from the italian cafes all around florence. At night, it is a bar and no dinner, so the excellent food is lunch only. It looks more modern and different, so you wouldnt expect the BEST italian fare. Everything is fresh, light and delicious. Nothing in thick, heavy, touristy sauces and just cooked perfectly. The penne with pecorino, olive oil, and pancetta is superb. The generic spaghettini in pomodoro is the BEST tomato sauce of our 2 week trip!! The second lunch I had a special of farfalle with black cabbage and pecorino. Omg was it perfection. We also had the hamburger plate which is SO much better than you can understand. It is cooked perfectly and comes with roasted peppers, eggplant, and zucchini. What a cozy place to stop first of all...you are tucked away in a happy, modern atmosphere that is either playing Sinatra or light techno in the background. The owner walks around singing. Everyone is so friendly. There is a lunch salad bar that comes with your meal that is amazingly good. And they bring a mix of fresh italian breads in a paper bag that is so cute and clever. We loved the food so much that we tried to go for dinner, too - we didn't realize it was only a swanky bar at night. Simply amazed us that such good food was only for lunch!! And so reasonable!!! It blew out mind. We didn't mind splurging, but there were so many places we spent much more on that were not nearly as good!
