Description: The restaurant the Tuscan and 'a land of balance, "happy medium", where strong traditions, climate and culture tell a gastronomic history ancient, simple and tasty but deliberately simple. On this principle was born the restaurant "the cricket moro", from recipes to melia grandmother, and aunt of nena brown , written on small exercise books faded and sometimes oil-stained days of threshing. Today our passion for cooking and 'became profession. Pici with dumplings and noodles made by hand, with show-cooking dishes such as "joke of Chianina filippo ", but most of the cricket moro "The ciccio bono". Our attention in the selection of meat, matured for 33 days in vertical on and off and in cooking, makes us one of the best places to eat in Florence in Tuscany. The rite of its cut, Ext "filleting" with love and precision, the hot plate at 140 degrees, the salt of Volterra, oil "dievole" and black pepper make the magic of this moment. Our smile, friendly and welcoming atmosphere in a nostrale of modern times with old values, you expect in our house. Soon filippo and his staff

“The Highlight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

One of the highlights of our honeymoon. We stayed at San Lorenzo a Linari nearby and they recommended this small agriturismo restaurant. Every dish was spectacular but the star of the show (other than our waiter - who was probably also the owner) was the florentine steak.. which is ONLY served RARE (you don't get a choice.. this is traditional!) and absolutely delicious. The nonna's dessert was a close second. I'm usually a chocolate girl.. but that was easily one of my favorite desserts I have ever had. Fantastic food, friendly people and.. we're in Italy? Heavenly.

“Yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Proud to be one of 2 non-Italian people to review this restaurant.

That pretty much summed up our experience there, as well. We were probably the only non-local customers and loved that! This was one of 2 places all over Italy that we found a menu without any English on it. Felt like we were experiencing real Italy. The food was amazing. I had veggie lasagna and the crispy cheese top was really great. My husband had the spaghetti al ragu and it was one of his favorites throughout the trip.

Atmosphere was like a community restaurant. Everyone seemed to know one another. Casual. Warm. Friendly. Our waiter spoke a little english and that was helpful but it was really cool to step out of our culture for an evening. We definitely recommend coming here.
