Very nice place ,we had a reservation so we were immediately seated .Got the expanations about the menu from the owner ,also we have been served by a nice guy (originally from Romania).
The menu is restricted but represents the local dishes and the products found at market in the same day. So I choose a soup and for the main I had "trippa ala Fiorentina".
All dishes were perfectly cooked , I can't remember my spouse's dishes but I remember he said is very good. The disappointment came with the desert ,we ordered "mille feuilles" ,this is a classic dish and everybody knows how it should be. In this case they served some crushed small pieces of bad pastry (but not the puff pastry it should be) floating in a lake of "creme anglais" (but it should be patesier).When we walked out the owner asked how it was and when we said him about the desert he didn't like it and turned around and walked away.
Well,some kind of attitude!
A big pity because the food was perfect.

This tiny restaurant,during the summer become much larger because of the outdoor tables set on the street at 30 meters from Piazza del Duomo,the menu is well studied few courses that guarantee freshness and daily
choice of local products.Homemade pasta with different sauces as zucchini flowers and shrimps ,farro's soup,classic bruschetta as starters or with goat's cheese or with olive's paste or tomato.
the main course you can choose fish, it depends what Filippo as found at the fish market,or meat and if you like fiorentina you'll be satisfied.
the wine list offer a fine choice and to end the meal in a sweet way you can have a beautiful homemade millefoglie with soft ffruits,

We didn't booked on advance but reluctantly they gave us a table inside.
The staff was not that friendly with one exception: an English-speaking young guy who really helped us and translated the full Italian-only menu.
The food was ok, very Italian, though we found the portions rather small.
All by all ok
