“It's what you order that matters”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

This was our first dinner in Florence. There were four of us for dinner and luckily we were able to get a reservation, because they did fill up. As we had read, the house wine was very good and we had a great table in corner. They didn't rush us and we enjoyed our time there.

Our entree reviews are mixed. My husband had the veal steak and it was delicious. My brother-in-law had a chicken dish and he was very happy. I ordered the zucchini gnocchi and it was disappointing. It was a bit heavy and not what I was hoping for. My sister ended up with a dish of asparagus and a fried egg, not exactly the translation she was expecting. It was our first night in Italy.

“Hard to find? but certainly NOT unknown!”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

The St Regis concierge suggested this out-of-the-way trattoria in response to our request for a good, simple lunch destination within easy walking distance...he was right on the money!
Not visible AT ALL looking down the street from Borgo Ognisanti, & with even the actual entry tucked away when you DO get there...once inside the quirky interior, a friendly welcome immediately relaxes you for a marvellous gastronomic experience.
This IS what essential Florentine food is all about! Simple & uncomplicated...at our table of 4 we were more than happy with EVERYTHING we ordered,,the house-made pasta being for me the highlight! Good local wine, reasonably priced & generously poured with laughter by our English-speaking (this is always convenient!) waiter, saw us later reviewing overall our having eaten at some of Firenze's most famous restaurants...but agreeing it was HERE we had the most honest, best food delivery in three days...Bravo 13! We would all love to come back again!

“Amazing buzz”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

We did well to get a reservation and by the time we left they were queueing out the door. The antipasti were spectacular and i loved my fresh spaghetti. Perfect night slightly off the normal tourist trail.

“Definitely one to visit again.”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

Great food, great atmosphere and service. It's beautiful to look at too. The shelves are covered with old bottles, there's an old fashioned till, interesting things hanging from the ceiling and stylish black and white photos adorn the walls.
We had the florentine steak for 2 which was an enormous tbone cooked exactly as we'd requested.
We hadn't booked and got a seat at about 7.20pm on Saturday but after that there were a number of people turned away until tables became emptier at 9pm. It was still heaving when we left after 11pm.
