We stumbled across this place at lunchtime - tempted in by the large joints of cured meats & salamis close to the window. The atmosphere was lovely and the diners (judging by the accents) a mix of tourists & locals. We had a shared platter of meats & cheeses, and a couple of glasses of wine from the extensive choice of wines by the glass. It was excellent - so good, in fact, we went back for dinner. Dinner was also superb - the 1.2k Florentine steak to share was just delicious, and as for the van santo with biscotti for dipping.....!!
Its just off the square by the duomo - definitely worth seeking out.

A great choice near Palazzo Medici Riccardi and Cattedrale di S. Maria del Fiore. The restaurant has a very nice setting with a cozy wooden ambiance, a comprehensive and well arranged menu and the food seems to be cooked with care. The service is also good.

Excellent food, excellent service by far one of the best meals in Florence. So good we returned twice. Great wine selection and just off the main square where the restaurant vultures hang out out the door to try lure you in. Stay clear of them and walk this little bit further. Excellent value.

Stumbled across this restaurant by chance after some hungry wandering through Florence. Perhaps the best chance discovery ever made - the food was simple and delicious. Amongst four of us we shared 2 lots of bruschetta (normal tomato and basil and one with pecorino and black truffle - to die for), pasta (cheese filled ravioli with mushrooms and cheese and pear pasta parcels topped with cheese fondue) and pizzas (margherita and prosciutto). We had an early dinner so it was very quiet, great ambience and service too.

Went with my partner for dinner twice, it has an amazing wine list, great selection of cheese (pistachio pecorino wow) / cured meats and a very tremendous 1.2 kg florentine steak. Can't wait to go back on my next holiday.
