“Great food, inexpensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Bistecca alla fiorentina for 17 euro? Yep. And a killer ribollita, the delicious Tuscan soup. Staff is friendly, the place is nice and frequented by locals (a good sign) and the overall experience was satisfying and inexpensive. Would return anytime.

“Flames dancing from a traditional pizza oven finally drew us in....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

We had walked past a couple of times during the week, but the sight of the flames and the tantalising aroma spilling out from the pizza oven inside finally drew us in. The street side tables were always popular, so we went inside the split level restaurant. The local garlic bread (Fettuna Toscana) was soon devoured by a hungry family of four. Cannelloni Ragu, spaghetti carbonara and a delicious Sorrentina pizza were the order of the day and I washed mine down with a litre of Italian beer.. Fantastico !
62.40 Euros for a delicious and very filling meal including Coperto cover charge of 8 Euros. Fast and pleasant service with delicious food in decent quantity! What more could be asked for ? A re- visit proved equally satisfying...

“The food was ok, the service slow and an 8 Euro cover charge for absolutley nothing !”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We fell into the tourist trap of just going to a Pizzeria near our hotel.

We both ordered a Pizza, which came quite quickly and was actually quite tasty but very thin and not particularly filling. We noticed a young couple who (like us) were still peckish and had ordered another pizza to share after not being satisfied with their meal.

We waited for over 30 mins for anyone to come over and take an order - we were concidering just getting up and going as the waiting staff seemed determined to ignore us.

When we got the bill there was a 4 Euro Cover Charge each. We later researched what, in Italy is "covered" ~ bread ~ breadsticks ~ butter ~ water ~ Olives etc. We had not had these - they had not been offered ".....its a cover charge". So thats 8 Euros for nothing. No wonder so many go to McDonalds - they price things honestly.

Shame the service and cover charge were so dissapointing - the Pizza was actually ok !
