“Good food, service not so much”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

We ate here last year and had two very good meals. On a return visit this year, my friend's purse was stolen while we were eating lunch outside. There was an accordion player who was very aggressive and we think that he may have been distracting us while someone behind us stole the purse. The staff/owner was not very helpful - asked us if we were sure the purse was stolen! While this was not the restaurant's fault, it definitely ruined our meal and doubt we'll ever return. The food was still good, but recommend you sit inside and be wary of the accordion players!

“A nice evening meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

Recommended by the staff at Vecchi Sapori (because we could not get a table in the evening) and although the food was good, it was not as good as Vecchi

“Fast, Tasty and Easy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

Location is great, within walking distance of everything in Firenze, although that does not make for everything. Food is VERY good, ambience (if you manage to get a table outside and good weather) is great, but service is awful, definitively the waiters need to have further training... A LOT.

“Charming little find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

Came here on first night in Florence based on TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed! Very busy and hadn't booked but only waited 10 mins for lovely outside table in a little square just off the main drag. Attentive, though not amazing service but lovely food at reasonable prices and a clear hit with the locals so well worth a try!

“Nice meal near the Piazza della Signora”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

We had a nice meal here - unable to fit outside - we had an enjoyable table inside and were treated nicely.

My wife really enjoyed the gnocchi. The pastas were all very nice. Reasonable prices for Florence.

My birra was a tad expensive. Waitress was friendly enough and patient.

Grazie.
