Went here for our last night in Florence and I can't recommend it higher. I had the chicken and chips (Australian paraphrase) and the chicken was cooked so well, it was so tender and the chips were so tasty.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. The food was delicious and fresh, the service was excellent. We loved it so much we went back the next night and ordered something different and we were not disappointed. This was our favourite restaurant of our Italy trip! Highly recommended!

We visited this restaurant late in the evening. Staff was polite. We received the food quickly: Fiorentina with baked potatoes. Simply delicious. Prices are ok,we highly recommend it. It is located 2 minutes far away from Mercure Hotel.

The restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere with good service. The food is excellent and well prepared like you expect good Italian food to be. Furthermore, the prices are very reasonable.

This place is near the market. The food was really quite good. I enjoyed it as did my husband. We each had a pasta dish before hitting the central market. I would go back!

Popular choice is staying at the Atlantic Palace since it's right next door. Food was amazing. Try the pasta with ricotta. So good. Florentine steak is very good too.

We had a good meal here. Food was hot, but the service was slow, we had to request our bill two times and it took twenty minutes before it came.

We passed by this restaurant many times and finally stopped. How wonderful, the food was fantastic. We had Pici alla Norcina, a thick homemade pasta particular to Tuscany that holds the sauce. The sauce was something to always remember: a cream truffle sauce with meat. We also had Fettucine agli Straci di Pollo: it was also a homemade Fettucine noodle... More
