Agree with everyone that the food and service was excellent. My ravioli with truffle sauce and beef stew, and my husband's spaghetti with spicy tomato sauce and beef strips with truffle sauce were all delicious. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

After reading great reviews, we were hesitant to walk into the almost empty restaurant, but were seated by our efficient server at a corner table in the charming upstairs loft. We feasted on delicious house red wine, ossobuco, and the most incredible beef strips with truffle sauce that will visit our dreams for years. We were brought complimentary limoncello after our chocolate dessert and thought we were done, but the gregarious Fabrizio arrested us at the bar and poured more limincello, grappa, and amaro. We had a ball. We then poured ourselves out onto the nearby Ponte Vecchio where we...got engaged!!! The next day, we happened upon Fabrizio again who was genuinely delighted by our news and invited us to return for a congratulatory drink before we left. We also look forward to returning as a married couple! Go, meet Fabrizio, and lap up the truffle sauce.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming. My husband had the balsamic steak with rocket and I had the homemade pasta with ragu. Both were delicious! The portions were pretty large (even by American standards) and we had no room for dessert. The prices were very reasonable for the food and wine. Definitely give this place a try!

Good value wholesome food for Florence, did not feel as if we were ripped off. The two guys (assuming owner and son) were very quick to serve and made us feel at home. Downside was that upstairs it was very hot!

A great little restaurant just off the Piazza Santa Maria Novella. It felt very family-run and we had the BEST steak I have ever had - only go if you're hungry though as it's a beast! Great service and warm atmosphere, a must if you want to avoid tourist-orientated restaurants
