“We were on our way to another but glad we went here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

On our way to another spot but the rain was coming down and I knew this place was also good....we sat upstairs in a lively room and the open window made it very comfortable...young crowd and a very good wine list....nice young waiter and good service....I have never seen so many fresh clams on a Vongole....everyone's meals was great and we had a fun time in a nice area of the oltrarno ..the only place to stay in Firenze ..worth a go for sure ...

“it failed to impress me”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Seeing the reviews here I expected more. We had a table for 6 inside and we were quite cramped. The service was not much, the waiter seemed quite overwhelmed. My picks (Florentine beef, spinach, Tiramisu) were average, plus they would not take my Visa chip card for the payment. The good part was the decent price. The above plus my share of two bottles of wine (the beef was also dived to 3, as it was a 1.2 kilo piece) - 25 euro.

“Go go go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

The food here is fabulous, in a great location with cool staff and a small but really good wine list. Great place to spend a hot afternoon. Go!

“Amazing spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

We went here on our last night, a group of over 12, so we prebooked. The previous night we turned up and no chance of a seat! I know why now - great food, great prices and a big belly! Lovely waiter, so run off his feet but very honest!

Was a fantastic way to end our time in Florence.

“Lovely restaurant but don't eat anything beforehand!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Booked a table inside for 8pm but arrived at 7pm and they managed to find a table outside. Inside looked a little cramped to be honest.
Food was excellent but the portions were huge! My daughter had gnocchi which was enough for two. Our starters were almost too big to eat which was a pity as the quality was excellent.
Service was good and friendly but one of the chairs was a little dirty and needed to be changed and the table itself could have done with an inspection before we sat down.
Certainly recommended though
