Not sure if the owner was having a bad day, but was very rude, hanging up in the middle of trying to make a reservation. Guess he doesn't need the business.

Really don't get the raving reviews this joint receives. Mediocre food at best, boorish staff, an unmannered big mess which is apparently mistaken for 'authentic italian'. To top this rowdy night off desserts were slapped on the table with great rush since the next pack...More

Reserve ahead! Tiny restaurant is packed at each seating with people craving succulent beef. Giulio whacks off the size hunk you request before he grills it 7 minutes each side. Delicious! Don't know how we had room for dessert, but we did. Delicious lemon semifreddo...More

I would say depends if you speak italian? The owner speaks good english but the staff not as much. Our host where we were staying phoned and made a booking for us 2 days ahead.

The Osteria ACQUACHETA, open for over 25 years, has retained the characteristics of the old Tuscan taverns. The kitchen, sharing tables, one glass for water and wine, and not least an authentic welcome and true, typically Tuscan, make it a local flavor ... you feel at home ... Managers, CHIARA and GIULIO, have maintained intact over the years the tradition of pasta, bread, cakes and homemade preserves to which are added succulent steaks cooked Florentine embers of wood. Local, small and very popular, is located in the upper part of the old town, a few steps from the main square.
