Location and contact

We aren’t chefs, but we love good food. We cook what we like to eat, as if we were cooking for friends. This is why our menu, although mainly Tuscan, offers meat and seafood dishes from other regions as well, exploring other gastronomic cultures, recipes from friends and a smattering of creative invention. We like to experiment with new dishes, focusing on quality at the same time. We offer two different options, but the quality and competitive pricing remain. Buffet lunch. Wide assortment of dishes replenished frequently. Each course has a fixed price. Water and bread are included. The tables are already set and you may sit wherever you like. There is no table service, but our busboys are quick

I have been at least three times to this place and their food is wonderful each time. They typically focus on seasonal ingredients from Tuscany, thus their menu changes a bit. While the restaurant is not located in the very heart Florence, it is still...More

We had dinner here and enjoyed the sucking pig and lamb. Didn't try any puddings as we couldn't eat another thing. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is bright and welcoming.

I have only eaten there for lunch, when it is a self-service place (you get regular table service for dinner). Prices are very reasonable, the food is excellent and the stuff friendly. The atmosphere is very pleasant. It is as cozy as your grandmother's kitchen....More

This restaurant is owed by a doctor who loves to cook. He chooses himself fresh ingredients together offer to his clients. He is worried about the profit only! This feeling goes thru the employees like Nubi in the picture with us! It's a self service...More

What a marvellous place. We had dinner one evening, which was delicious and their buffet lunch the next day, equally good, but help yourself. We were very well looked after.

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.

Well, you need to order at the counter, then you can just wait at the table and someone will bring the food over. Or one of you can just wait for it to be done. As it is a small place, the very nice people there remember... More
