The host at our hotel recommended this place as the one where he eats when he doesn't feel like eating at his family's restaurant. We never would have found it without his directions, which is probably why it was so friendly and uncrowded. The atmosphere...More

After walking around (which is a must to get to the sights within Florence), this is a very nice and peaceful restaurant with local Italian flavour. We ordered the ravioli and stuffed crepes which were both very delicious. Cover charge is only €1.5 per person...More

Fantastic food, service, and ambience. The owner even had a shot of grappa with my husband as we were leaving the establishment. It is a great place with great food and great owners.

Don't miss this little place. From the outside it looks like a "hole in the wall." However, the food is amazing! The homemade ravioli warrants savor in slowly; the lasagna light and not too filling. We then had the Osso Bucco and Tuscan beef stew:...More

This is a place to go when in florence. Decente value for money, friendly staff, great room. We had bruschettas and lasagna, they were great. It's one of the best lasagnas I've ever tried really.

Welcoming host helped answer all our questions about the menu and accommodated a specific request for spaghetti bolognese. Homemade pasta with Tuscan ragu was delicious and I'm already craving the pasta. We paid 33 euros for two pasta primi courses and a jug of house...More

We had Maltagliati and Ravioli. Both plates were exactly what you would expect from an authentic Italian restaurant. Delicious, normal sized portions, served friendly and quickly. Prices were very reasonable. The restaurant is very small and you will feel very comfortable. Deserves the great reviews...More

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The

Our first visit, my wife and I walked in about 7. No problem. Seated immediately. By 8, it was full and the owner was turning people without reservations away. So being early w/o reservations is key. Owner speaks enough... More
