“One of the best meals I had in Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

The atmosphere isn't much, but the food is truly amazing. Loved the tagliatelle con funghi. A great bargain.

“One of the meals we've had in Europe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We absolutely loved this restaurant, definitely one of the best meals we have had in Europe on a 3 month trip. The bruschetta was so fresh, and the complimentary bread was awesome, not to mention the amazing balsamic vinegar! My boyfriends pizza was to die for and my risotto was faultless. Prices were reasonable and service excellent. Well definitely be back and will happily recommend to anyone :)

“Balsamic Vinegar!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

This place got recommended by several people so we had to try it out. It is a nice casual place and the menu is huge-we had some great gnocchi-best we may have had in Italy. The food was fresh and simply a great place to eat, but the best part was that balsamic vinegar!

“Varied and delicious menu, friendly and quick service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

A friendly place with extremely good food in a very busy area. We lunched with a local relative who is a student in Florence, and went to this place on her recommendation. We had a toddler with us, found the service quick and friendly, and the food fresh and wonderful with many varied menu choices. This is not your typical "tourist food"! We were thrilled with every dish served. What a wonderful surprise!

“Best Meal We Had in Europe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of a family member who studied abroad in Florence. By far the best decision we made. We had the manzo verdure and four cheese gnocchi and I would even venture to say that the steak was the best steak I have ever eaten.
