As they told us, they are "Antico" style. Typical food, local one, simple one, good one. Good spot to have a simple and tasty break and enjoy the moment with some friends or family. A 4 and not a 5 because prices are a bit expensive and desserts are not at the level of the rest.

Was recommended to us by a local, we were positively surprised. Excellent, proper Italian food at great price (wine too). No tourists there - staff spoke no English - a rare thing in overcrowded Florence.

This was our favorite new find on our last trip to Florence. Both of the pastas we ordered- a pasta with white truffles and one with spicy noodles were fantastic and tasted like home cooking (in the best sense) The restaurant was a little out of the way and the service was a bit gruff, but we loved the food...

We came in for a late dinner on our last night in Florence. We were sat immediately but the place filled up very quickly. Our server (Ian I think his name was) was incredible. For dinner I ordered the pork chop and my wife ordered the roast beef. Both meals were delicious. I particularly enjoyed the seasoning on the pork... More

I read everything I could find... and have to say I as not disappointed. Ziggy was right when he described the "tattooed waiter," Ian. And Ian was a blessing guiding us, listening to what we wanted, and gently moving us toward excellent decisions. It was very unassuming when we walked in, but certainly did not disappoint. We will be back!

We found this place quite by accident, just outside the city walls of Florence, as we were driving through Florence en route to Umbria. We really didn't expect more than just a perfunctury lunch, too close to the beaten tourist track to be any good. But we were pleasantly surprised both at the friendliness of the staff, the atmosphere of... More

We had read great things about this place and were sure to make an advance reservation. A local favorite that was a 10 min taxi ride from town. Our waiter Ivan has roots in the USA and totally made the meal for us. He knew exactly what we were interested in and steered us in the right direction. The stand... More
