“It started so well....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

Based on trip advisor reviews we searched quite hard to find this place. We took a seat outside. The bruschetta we had was probably the best on our trip, generous helping and delicious. Unfortunately one of our mains was very under cooked. The manager had to be convinced it was raw meat but did take it back and we were not charged. The overall service was poor. The staff seemed disinterested and spent a lot of time chatting with themselves when we tried to get their attention. Our experience didn't match the other recent reviews!!

“So close to the tourist traps, yet a truly unique and original Florentine eatery.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

Amazed at the outside seating. The service is friendly and speaks both slow Italian as well as English :-). The menu is straightforward (Italian only) but original and the price/quality ratio is superb! Do check the daily specials - we were lucky to get lardo con panne è fetarunna. The wine list is particularly interesting as they serve a lot by the glast. Great coffee too, and we loved the 2-litre bottles Limoncello and Averna.

“My favorite in Florence.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

Two out of four nights in Florence, I ate here. No pretense here just great food. Gnocchi Gorgonzola still makes me drool when I think of it. Can be warm inside the restaurant in the summer, so get a table outside if you can. If you can't, still go.
