“Incredible restaurant”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Incredible experience! We tried to make a reservation for lunch or dinner, but they were completely booked for days. On Friday after taking a great Segway tour of Florence, we happened to stop by and spoke to the family who owns the restaurant. The son (waiter) was incredibly nice and offered for us to return at 2 pm and he would seat us. The menu (in Italian) was carefully explained and the food was amazing. The entire restaurant only seats around 15 persons and the ambiance is perfect. Go if you have the opportunity, you will not be disappointed!

“A Trip Advisor overranking”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

This quaint family run restaurant is fun, but honestly, way overrated. There is no way this should be a top 10 dining experience in Florence.

This is an example of when Trip Advisor followers start following the crowd and an establishment rides the momentum of this site.

We took a group of nine and had a fun night. Food was good, service was good, experience was good. But good is not Top 10.

“Tutto Bueno! And be sure to make a reservation!”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

We were very lucky to be able to get a table here on our first visit. This Osteria is very small and sits about 15 people. We had to share a table with another couple but we didn't mind because the food was worth it!
The menu is written in Italian but the manager (I think he's the owner's son) speaks English and translated the menu for us. He spends half his time telling people the restaurant is fully booked!
Many locals also visited this place so it must be really good and it is!
I would happily go back to Florence and eat there every day! (except Sunday.. they close on Sunday..)

“A hiiden gem”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

We tried this restaurant a number of years ago and had such a good meal we had to try it again.Run by a father and son, this tiny ( 6 tables) restaurant offers old fashioned, traditional dishes at reasonable prices. My pheasant was the best I have eaten and my wifes osso bucco was excellent. A unique treat. book first

“Amazing authentic Italian”
Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

This place is truly amazing! It is a small restraunt with a great atmosphere. The menu is written on a daily basis in italian and thoroughly explained to us by the waiter. The staff here were wonderful, friendly and fun. Our food was to die for and very reasonable price. You do need to book but it is so worthwhile. Fantastic little place.
