Great place. We ate Christmas lunch here and the place was packed with locals. It is about a 10-15 minute cab ride from city center. Everything was fantastic, including the house wine by the carafe, except for the roast chicken which was cooked to utter exhaustion. The pastas were fantastic, the bolito misto an adventure, and everything else superb. Portions are large so make sure you are hungry.

We live in Florence and just love this place. The coccoli (think fried pizza dough with farmers cheese and fresh cut prosciutto) is the best in the city. Hands down. We have tried many - and all pale in comparison.

You also can't go wrong with their daily specials. The beef with green peppercorns is exceptional. So is the florentine steak. The pork is also always great.

Pizzas and calzones are crowd pleasers.

Service is warm, though recommend reservations as this place can be crowded.

I've eaten there several times and each time found the food and service excellent, Chianti risotto with Gorgonzola outstanding, a good wine selection all reasonably priced.

Restaurant away of the touristic paths and crowded with a lot of locals. Little English spoken. Had fantasic fresh pasta's! Took pasta of the day - a tagliatella with pancheto tomato's, pesto of rucola and burrata. Very tasteful! Also pasta with ragu was delicious.

We found this restaurant as a recommendation from our guide in Cinque Terra... he said he brought his girlfriend there & she loved it. But, their are no tourists and they only speak a little English.. we were sold! We were looking for local feel... local food... and just being part of the Florence people away from the tourists! What an amazing restaurant. We were not disappointed. We ate asparagus flan over fresh mozzerella.. homemade pasta with beef gravy ragu... pizza... and filet mignon for the finish... The flan was one of my favorite dishes during my trip to Italy. We loved this small restaurant filled with Italian language and lovely people. The owner was super friendly and happy to see some tourists coming into his restaurant... he was hoping we'd review his restaurant.. and.. here it it. IT WAS AMAZING.. WORTH THE 15 MINUTE CAB RIDE OUT OF THE DOWNTOWN FLORENCE... FOOD AMAZING... AND COULD NOT BEAT THE PRICE!!!! It was also the most inexpensive meal we had... but no lacking to ambiance or love in the food.
