We ate here on Sept 22, 2012 on the recommendation of a co-worker. It was busy but staff was still attentive. There were for of us and we each had a different appetizer and different pasta dish. Everything was delicious as was the wine. The price was very reasonable for all the food we received. I would definately go back if I am in Florence again and would not hesitate to recommend it.

I visited this restaurant based on the recommendation given by the hotel counter. Very nice and attentive service. Also, the food is very tasty and good for value. I had a mixed seafood as appetizer, tuscany soup and a big bistecco (500g). All only cost me €38, which is around the same price that I paid for a meal in Venice but double the portion. also even tastier. Situated in a nice location which is only 5-min walk from Florence SMN train station. Highly-recomended to every visitor.

I started with the Baked Lasagna which was good and a pretty sizable portion as well.

For the main course I ordered the grilled pork ribs. It looked like a huge portion, but the edible sum of meat was more practical. The quality wasn't top notch, it was a bit salty, an there was too much oil. But it was fine.

For the vegetable, I chose the green salad. It's literally a bowl full of plain lettuce. They give you a bottle of olive oil and low quality balsamic vinegar. This was the worst part, but not a deal-breaker. Next time I will probably choose the fries instead.

The 12€ menu also comes with your choice of a carafe of wine or 0.5 liter of mineral water. Not a bad package for the price, but next time I may stick with ordering myself as opposed to going with the 12€ menu.

Staff were friendly.

There is no cover charge or extra tax. On the menu it is clearly written "the price you see is the price you pay".

Knew nothing of the place just stopped in as was passing
Service is smart but casual waiter was very friendly
Pasta dishes are very good nice wine as well
Sat out side traffic is a bit noisy not the restaurants fault but sit inside by day to avoid this
Desserts are only average at best
Overall quite nice thou and not overly priced which is plus around the plaza as some are
