“Amazing food, cozy atmosphere and great prices”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

The hotel we stayed in recommended this place. first night we tried, they were already closed (dinner in Italy, especially in small restaurants is 7 pm to 9 pm, and we came after 9 pm). second night proved to be more successful- we ordered pastas and some side dishes with the house wine. everything was fresh, really good quality (esp. the chesse). the place was filled with locals and tourists alike. we even sat nect to a Canadian couple that told us they drove especially to eat in this place.
night after that, we came in again, this time for pasts as entree and fiorentina steak for the main course, with potatoes and spinach on the side. everything was so, so good, and the staff really tried to understand and accomodate our needs (i'm pregnant, so no rare meat for me).
when i asked about their lemon cake for dessert, i was told they were out, but the lady found a last (and smaller piece) and brought it to me.
great food, service, quality and price. if i could, i would have returned.

a side note- we spent 4 nights in florence, and were generally disappointed with all food offerings in the center. stay in a hotel outside the center, and get a better price and better food options

“Honest food for a bargain in a local osteria”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

The restaurant offers honest food for a low price. It is frequented mostly by locals from the neighbourhood. We found it because our hotel was nearby. It was certainly worth the visit. The staff only speaks Italian, but if you know your Italian dishes this should not be a problem.
Meat lovers must try the sliced Fiorentine steak, which is a heap of meat for only EUR 12,-.
Restaurant is closed on Sunday.

“Excellent Food, definitely go back”
Reviewed June 5, 2011

The hotel we stayed at recommended this restaurant and we are glad that we went. The food was excellent, everything fresh and very tasty. The price was very reasonable for the quality of food.

We had the onion soup to start which was *amazing*. Then each chose a pasta dish with home made pasta. A very good eating experience in Florence and would definitely go back.
