“A tourist trap worth going to”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2011

This restaurant is right on the Piazza - compared to prices at the adjoining establishments it is a bargain. The waiters are aggressive trying to get you to come into the terrace and sit down, but once you are seated it very relaxed and enjoyable.

The pizza has a thin crust and was fired in a brick oven, our 4 cheeses was very good at 8 euro. The salads was fresh and crisp

There were strolling singers to complete the tourist atmosphere

“Avoid this pretty little trap”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2011

Our food literally came out less than 5 minutes after ordering it. My sister's cheese sauce was congealed. Everything tasted like it was a Lean Cuisine meal. The waiter was very nice, but the food was gross. If you must stop here to admire the beautiful Piazza, just order some wine.

“Yuck, yuck, YUCK!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2011

Don't go here, avoid it at all costs! The food is horrible, obviously reheated from pre-cooked long ago and the other ingredients are none too fresh either. Just because it's right next to the uffizi and all that does not make it a nice place to eat. If desperate, eat here and get a gelato from a gelateria to take the taste away or just go hungry!
