This is a great little restaurant. The food was excellent. The service was great. It is much more pan Mediterranean than we were expecting. The meatballs were outstanding.

One of our favorite meals on a recent visit to Florence. Intimate setting in quiet neighborhood. Sophisticated cooking and excellent service, very gracious and friendly owner. Their lovely spot provided an interesting alternative to the more traditional restaurants that we visited in Florence.
