“Short but interesting menu and food quality excellent as was service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

We liked the front of house gentleman who was attentive and helpful on a quiet February night. The food was very good and reasonably priced as was the wine. If staying in the area of Piazza Santa Maria Novella a good choice as against some more expensive restaurants in the area which guide books recommend. We have no qualms in recommending this one

“Buonissimo / excellent!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

We just found this place for lunch and everything was great and staff was very friendly and helpful! If you are in Florence and staying close to Santa Maria Novella you Have to pay a visit to this awesome restaurant!
I am an Italian living in London and usually don't eat meat, but had their tagliatelle with salsiccia and loved it!
Highly recommended to anyone, couples or families.

“Italian charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

After a long day walking around and feeling a bit chilly we decided to visit this restaurant on the recommendation from a friend. The food was beautiful and the beef stew was just what we needed. It was cooked properly as the meat just fell apart and the flavours were rich. The gentleman who served us was fantastic, the nicest person we met on our trip, he made us feel very welcome and considering he was on his own the quality of service remained high. A bit of advice - the starters are huge portions so may be share one. Definitely get your moneys worth.
