A wonderful small trattoria near the Arno. Charming delicious and warm. Everything was fantastic from the Primi piatti to the wonderful torta della Nona. The staff spoke very good English and was very profofessional.

“Looking for a place to eat? Look no further”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

If you are looking for haute cuisine this is not the place but if you want good food, friendly staff, a lively atmosphere and great value for money this is the place. The fixed price menu included a great gnocci in mushroom sauce and macaroni in a spicy tomato sauce to start off with. Mains included an excellent rabbit in olive sauce and turkey roulade. We finished off with a homemade riccota cheese cake. Together with a decent carafe of house red and a bottle of mineral water our bill including tip was 37 euros. Need I say more?

“Authentic Florentine experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

It's by far the favorite place, and the trattoria where I take my friends and family who are visiting Florence. It is always a success! The owners are very kind, and every-time we go back we feel like visiting dear friends. The food is local, fixed menu (but each course offers various choices) and the "vino della casa" is really good too.
