“Great place to end our holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

I dont know why this has such bad reviews, in my eyes, this is what food in Italy is all about. Rustic restaurant, 'proper' italian food, good wine and serve great. Jimy was brilliant. We said we would mention him :-). The serve wasn't quick, but that isn't what we were looking for, we were looking for somewhere with great authentic pizza and good wine to chill out to all afternoon, and what a place this was. Def worth going to if you want a taste of realism rather than tourism

“Rip off Palace”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

In 16 days of of dining in Italy this by far was the worst. It stands out for rude arrogant waiters and bland fare. The wait staff ignored us and other English speaking customers and focused on Italian speakers. They obviously rely on the setting rather than on food and service. When I asked to speak to the manager after seeing my bill I was told he wasn't available. This is the only place in all of Italy where we were charged a cover charge and an service charge both. I would not pay a fee for a lack of service. This is the only negative I have about all of our trip to Italy.

“Not very good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Went here when having a walk through Florence looking for something to eat, it looked good from the outside but appearances can be deceptive! The service was terrible and it appeared that we were doing them a favour by eating there. The food was bland and very average, we waited forever to get our food and even longer for them to bring the bill - in fact I would say that they just ignored us.

It is placed very close to city center. Also it is possible to find free place at any time here.
Excellent ratio between price and quality. Very friendly personnel. Various menu, including meat dishes. Excellent pizza quality.There is free Wi-fi here.
