We asked our hotel to make a booking here as we had heard good things about it. On arrival we were welcomed and taken to a back room of the restaurant. We were sat in the corner with a good view of the room, at...More

I am definitely coming back to this place. I ate one of the best fiorentina I've ever experienced. The meat was so tender that was melting in my mouth. The porcini mushrooms were a masterpiece and everything with a great wine! You are a fool...More

I called the restaurant for booking (there is a staff who speaks English very well) but you can ask your hotel desk to make a reservation for the restaurant.
