Ate here two consecutive nights, had pasta both nights which were all excellent. House wine red/white were both great value and great tasting for the price. Would not hesitate to recommend to people

However without local knowledge we struggled finding quality restaurants in Italy on the tourist trail!

Our hotel gave us a discount coupon so we took advantage. Very good service; nice ambiance; very good food. The house red wine was excellent. Try their house made pasta. And the warm ricotta cheesecake for dessert was wonderful.

Went into this restaurant by chance as it was raining very heavy, it was Friday night and it was one of the nearest to our hotel, but what a gem and a real find. We had a lovely meal which was not too expensive. The house red was a delight also. The restaurant was packed with locals as well as... More

We were recommended this restuarant by our hotel, it was so good we booked for the next night, food portions were not enormous (which you don't need when eating pasta) and the local house wine was excelllent!

We ate at this restaurant both nights that we stayed in Florence and were very impressed with both food and service. Decker Decor was classic Italian. Tables a bit close. Lyn c

Popped in by chance and had a great evening - good food, good service and almost a party atmosphere. Be nice to them and they are nice to you - Lemoncello after the meal on the house!
