“Ottimo!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

We read about this place on Tripadvisor and walked by to see if there was any space. The owner told us they were booked out for one week and suggested us a different place. We were slightly disappointed, but decided to try our luck again later. We walked by the same evening and got lucky, there was a spot for us. We shared our table with some locals, they come to the restaurant frequently and were able to help us with recommendations. The owners were very friendly. The food, especially, my spaghetti with raw artichokes and the tiramisu for dessert were delicious. Would go again any time.

“Nice find! Excellent food, wine and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

Found this place from the high reviews on Yelp and Trip Advisor. Yes, they were correct. Had someone from the hotel make a reservation and glad we did! There is only room for about 18 people. Every seat is taken and many tried getting in but were turned away.

Food was so fresh and very good. There were 4 in our party and everyone enjoyed their food. The house wine was great and was a bargain. I bought a bottle to take with me.

Highly recommend!!

“12/21/2012 Florence, Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

Well, for the money, you just can't find a better place in Florence. This is little gym only seats about 15 to 20 people but the food is just incredibly good. The house wine is only $10 a bottle and it really was good. We are experienced travelers and I cannot remember such a bargain in Europe.

“Lovely!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

We emailed ahead to ask our hotel to pre- book for us, knowing how popular this place is, particularly with the locals. It was! As soon as a table became free, it was filled within 2-3 minutes. Thomas and his parents are lovely. We shared our table with a lovely,local Italian couple. The food was excellent cooked by mama. Can't fault the warm welcome, service or food.

“Small Simple Heavenly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

We reserved well in advance which is usually a must. There are 2 seatings and only a few tables. The food is fresh, simple, and perfect. Every flavor stands out and nothing is over composed or created for tourists. Can't wait to return!
