“Gorgeous food, a misunderstanding over the bill soured an otherwise excellent experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

The steaks here were amazing - the unexpected dispute over the bill arose out of a language misunderstanding - my original choice of main course was unavailable and I was offered an alternative. Unfortunately it wasn't made clear at that point that an extra charge would be levied - hence the bill being larger than anticipated. Up until that point the service and whole experience were unimpeachable and I would absolutely have returned there on our last night. The homemade strawberry cheesecake was to die for....I wouldn't say don't go - just make sure that if your choice of dish isn't available, and you are offered an alternative that isn't on the menu - that you know how much it will cost.

“The besto pesto ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

I'm travelling with my kids (1 and 5) and we have decided to sample the pesto widely. This place tops our list, and the serve was big enough for both kids plus mummy and daddy to have a taste. I'm consciously recommending TA as a family friendly place - the staff went out of their way to make sure we (especially the kids) were happy, which I really appreciated. As for the other meals: splendid. Tagliatelle ai frutti di mare was awesome; so many mussels and clams (I ordered this after smelling someone else's magnificent smelling mussel soup, and wasn't disappointed); my partner really enjoyed his chicken breast, to the point that he didn't let us taste it. That tells me it was pretty good!

“ONLY NEED A PASTA ENTREE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

Having been in Italy a week we've come to realise that we only need one course, not 3 which is often offered....had the entree of Tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms, other half had pici pasta (like a thick spaghetti) with boar meat, bread and 1/2 bottle of red wine...with service charge of 10% we paid just under 30 euros...no room for desserts....friendly service and you just have to ask for cracked pepper to see how it arrives....just brilliant!!! Pity they are not available commercially....
Was also nice to eat inside and not be pestered by the busking musicians or fellows selling roses..

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

In a few words-the food feels like home. The service-just like you are at your friend's house. One of the best food experiences in Florence. Thanks a lot.

“Magnifco”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

We were treated like family at this charming place with food so magnificent that we came back two days later. The food was just as good the second time. Ask for Luigi.
