I had the 13 courses menu, and every course was not only tasty, refined and good, it was also a piece of art. Answering a friend question, which was the best dish or the one a liked more, I answered the whole menu.

This was the best dinner in a while. We had taste manu and pair wine. The wine was just sublime, no exception. Unforgettable! The beer with the parmigiano WONDERFUL. My only disappointment came from the dessert. I won't remember anything about them which is unacceptable considering it is the best restaurant in the world.

Three of us ate at the restaurant for lunch and enjoyed all the food very much. The chef even came out and signed a book we had bought at the restaurant and we were able to visit the kitchens. This exceptional food experience was reduced only by the very awkward service. In an attempt to show that they were being... More

Lunch for two 15th February I'm no food blogger or food reviewer so a bit limited in words to describe this place, food and the experience, though I doubt even the most respected of food reviewers would struggle to describe dining at this place. We were lucky enough to get a cancellation during our time on holiday in Florence and... More

We went to the #1 ranked in the world restaurant on our vacation in Tuscany. It took us three months in advance and at 3 am in the morning to make the reservation. The restaurant is in an ally way. Nothing fancy from the outside. It has a gold plaque about the size of 12x16. It is painted salmon color.... More

Too stuffy and expensive for what it is. From wait staff to decor. The food was good, alas not worth the money. My wife and I were super excited at first and then the longer we were there the more boring the whole experience became. Zero ambience too. It cannot measure to Tickets nor Eleven Madison Park. Just to name... More

Everyone has a passion for which money is no object, as long as it is a once in a lifetime experience. I'm a foodie by all definitions, and just like I might not understand someone paying hundreds of dollars for court-side tickets or front-row ticket to a concert...I do understand that we do not control our passions, we have to...
