We were staying around the corner from this place in an apartment and it was recommended as somewhere to go for a florentine meal. We also noted that it was rated pretty highly on trip advisor. The staff were lovely and took very good care of us. The food was excellent also and they had an English menu which we are always grateful for when only knowing very limited Italian. We shared the short pasta to start, which was lovely but probably not needed as we struggled through the main of florentine steak, at a whopping 1.3kg, and sides consisting of a zucchini dish and a potato dish. The potato dish was extremely lovely. Well worth the visit and would recommend this place easily. May want to book though as we were lucky and we did notice that people did get turned away.

Via Rick Steeves... It was a great spot... Off the beaten path, but only 10 minute walk from Ponte V... A small, eclectic, family run spot... Sergio was working the room - warm, friendly guy that looks like a biker... We started with crostini, which at last had some flavor - the bruschetta had some spice and seasoning!!! Not just chopped tomato on cold, soft bread... We had the Carbonara as prima, which was w/ spinach pasta and was very, very flavorable with nice big chunks of bacon - top 2 Carbonaras in all of Italy after 3 weeks here... We ventured forward with the fried chicked not knowing what was coming and we got a cute little basket of fried chicken, and veggies - it was full of flavor and different... We had a 2006 Brunello and the whole meal was $65 all in... Pretty good...! Finally something interesting and different in Florence...!!!

We found this great place in our Rick Steves guide book and, once again, Rick's suggestion was spot on. It was homey, local and absolutely delicious. Sarah our server was fantastic. You've got to try this place! (I highly recommend the eggplant/aubergine appetizer--it will melt in your mouth!)

39.50 Eur for 1 person
1 excellent tagliata (sliced beef stake)
1 zucchini with mint side dish
1 home apple pie desert
Very good Samgiovese wine by the glass
Mineral water

For Florence this is excellent price/quality ratio. Add to this that our host Sergio and the rest of the family were very nice and helpful.

Small place, few tables, call them up before.
Very warm , simple and romantic.

We noticed an English menu and body language from the waiter to explain it at the nearby table.
We did not need it so can't say about the content but we found funny and effective the body language explanations !

I visited this restaurant a few times while I was in Florence because my friend Luigi (owner of Solo Made in Italy) likes to eat here for lunch and I now know why. The food was delicious, atmosphere was wonderful and service was great!! Lots of locals dine here so you know it must be good!!
