We had eaten in this restaurant in 2018, so we knew how good it was. Be sure to make reservations because it fills up fast. All. of the foot was exceptional.

This is a must for us when we visit Florence. This is a place frequented by the locals. You may be the only customer speaking English (don't worry, the staff will take care of you). It's small, crowded, loud, chaotic, and totally charming. And the...food ... it is absolutely some of the best in the city. Best osso buco on the planet. You definitely need a reservation.More

So lucky to be able to book a table here. Food was not the usual tuscan fare but so deliciously fresh and tender. Lamb chops, chicken in tempura with courgette flowers, yum. Young staff friendly and convivial. Ate in main square up from main family...restaurant. Don't miss it!More

Recommended to us by our Airbnb host, Marusca. You need a reservation. Listed as one of the Top 5 by Conde Nast Traveller, and they are not wrong. A tiny place, noisy and full of life. Artwork covers the walls and sections of the original...building is visible. We ate so well. Lunch on the Monday was Chicken Liver pate for starters. Followed by the pasta with Duck sauce, the Fettucine with porcini mushrooms that had been picked that day, and the lamb cutlets with fried potato. We shared between 4. Plenty to eat and we indulged in a non traditional Raspberry Tiramisu! Bliss! We also booked dinner the following evening. We repeated the pate because it was so damn good! Paccheri with Zucchini flowers and cheese, Beef Stew, and the Lamb cutlets ( couldn’t help it! So yummy!) The staff are wonderful, bustling about making everyone feel special. We look forward to coming here again.More

You absolutely need a reservation to this restaurant and you won'tbe disappointed. There is a small, quaint and absolutely bustling restaurant to eat indoors and a outside patio around the corner. The staff are super friendly. The service is reasonably paced and the food outstanding....We shared a Zucchini Salad to start, then we shared a Duck Ppardelle Pasta. Both super and substantial enough to be shared. For mains, my wife had the Lamb Chops with Potatoes and I had the Veal pwith Tuna Sauce. Again two winners. We went fully traditional and ordered Biscotti (Cantucci) with Vin Santo wine. It was a perfect meal and cost only 95 Euro.More

The best pasta we’ve ever had and we are from New York. The staff are all incredibly friendly in this family run small restaurant. It is the vibe you envision when dining in an authentic Florence restaurant with pastas and desserts you will continue to...dream about. We came here twice during our 4 night stay in Florence and had wonderful experiences both nights. The staff remembered even the tiniest details about us. We wish they’d open in NY and can’t wait to return!More

This was our family’s favorite stop in Florence. The atmosphere was buzzing - the staff have so much fun! Sit inside if you can just to catch the action. The staff all had a great sense of humor and clearly love it there. The menu...is handwritten and there are No Spritzes (and no ice! And no pizza!). The pate was served warm and a bit chunky which made it feel more rustic. Delicious. The salad made the veggies sing- simple, yummy. The pasta was incredible and we enjoyed the Florentine steak there. It was a perfect dinner and way to end our trip in Florence. Wonderful.More

We dined here in on July 7th, we had made 7:30 reservations in the States before we came. We were seated outside by the Gucci museum close to Medici house. My brother and law and I each had different steaks, that were great. My sister...had ravioli, which seemed to take forever to make (longer than the steaks). My mom had the fried chicken which I had read about on Yelp. She raved about it; I tasted it and wish I had ordered it.More

We chose this restaurant based on how popular it was in Tiktok and TripAdvisor, we wish we would never go there. The start was not that bad, we had booked a table for three and they gave us the table on the outside area, in...Piazza signoria, which was very nice. The guy who took our order got distracted while talking with us and served our white wine quiet warm as he took it directly from a bowl of water, in a way that felt like he couldn't be bothered. We had to ask for wine cooler as it was undrinkable! We heard them speaking to the table next to us about some products missing and to replace it, and after half hour they came to us to say the same thing. Why didn't they tell us at the same time? After a while it started to drizzle and we had to move inside, carrying all of our stuff from the table. Once inside, the table was not set up properly and we felt like they didn't look after us like they were with other customers, who seemed a bit more wealthy. Food wise nothing special, the roasted potato were very dry and tasted like they cooked it in the morning and left it there for the whole day. Overall, I wouldn't recommend it at all, you can find much better food quality and definitely a much better service!More

Hi, I would call the restaurant directly or have your hotel do it for you. I know they take reservations as many people arriving had them. I hope this helps. Enjoy!
