A great place to eat, to be greeted year after year as an old friend, to eat their wonderful food. One of the most welcoming places in all of Florence. They truly love to see their customers.
Family-run, top quality.

We overcame reservations about this place looking 'touristy' to eat lunch -- and were well pleased. We had the bruschetta & melon + prosciutto entrees and a pizza for the main. We had been starting with melon + prosciutto for about a week (in both rome and florence) and this was the best version of that classic dish. The bruschetta was good, but not a standout. Pizza was high quality. Service was very good (esp. for Italy). Their English was good, and they were patient when we tried our Italian. Highly recommended.

We stumbled into this restaurant by Santa Croce because the recommended Sapori from Trip Advisor w full and no reservations available. Our party of five had the meat lasagna, tortellini pecorino, spaghetti, and pizza. None of us were disappointed. The food was great, the service was excellent, and the atmosphere was perfect for lunch. W sat inside because A/C was necessary for this day in Florence, but outdoor seating was in very nice alley.

We ate here following a recommendation from the lonely planet guide book. The food was top notch.

Our only complaint was that the quality and speed of service dropped off after our mains were served. That said we were seated next to the owners daughter in law and sister who kept us entertained and the owners son managed to turn our growing disappointment around with some exceptional final service towards the end of our meal.

We stumbled upon this place during an afternoon stroll through the back streets of Florence and booked a table for dinner that night. Great ambience (especially in the back part of the restaurant on the lower floor near the back alley entrance). Solid pasta dishes, great wine by the glass (we ordered Brunello for 12 euros a glass and it was worth it) and a very nice atmosphere. Only downside was the slow service. The restaurant clearly needs to hire a few more people as two poor waiters were trying to cover the whole restaurant on a busy Thursday night!
