My husband and I came here on a recommendation from a friend. We stopped here for dinner after watching the sunset at the Piazza Michelangelo...and sure glad we did. It was by far the best meal we had on our whole vacation (in both Paris & Florence). Yes the menu is in Italian, but it's done purposefully so that you... More

Service is such an integral part of the dining experience and the staff here made our meals more than memorable! They were more than happy to explain the menu and we trusted their judgement on recommendations for both food and wine, and were not disappointed. The lasagne is delicious and changes nightly. A must try. Tiramisu was to die for.... More

Dined here on my birthday after having read all the great reviews. We had the antipasto della buchetta to start which was nice and then the famed bistecca fiorentina, which was disappointing and overpriced. The service was friendly but really slow. There are a lot better places in Florence.

We dined here Saturday and had to come back tonight- food, service and wine was outstanding. A highlight of our trip. Please try it - we are picky and thought it was outstanding.

Loved the place. Really cosy decoration. Me and my boyfriend were there to eat the famous "Bistecca Fiorentina" and it was really good. The house wine was also very good. The food didn't take long to be served and the people from the restaurant were all very nice. It's a bit expensive, but for the tipe of food and wine,... More

I can only offer the finest recommendation for this restaurant. The food and wine was truly excellent and we felt like part of a family here for our last night in Florence. We will definitely pass the word to others to dine here often.

High quality food! Loved the ravioli--get that. Negatives: prices are a bit high, pana cotta dessert was not good they used way too much gelatin, and the bill took a long time to get. I'm pretty laid back but this was the slowest process to pay in my entire experience of eating in Europe.

Can't fault this restaurant, the food was delicious, we had bruschetta to start followed by pasta and steak. The waiter was very attentive, even showing us places to go afterwards for a drink. We spent a few days in Florence and this restaurant was by far the best!

Really good service and really good food. We were made welcome from start to finish. The beef fillets were cooked to perfection. This was the best restaurant I went to in Florence by far. Expensive yes but so are the rest of them and not one came near to the quality that this one delivered. Congratulations to the owners, chef... More
