Fantastic little place on the "other" side of the Arno. Very few tourists here, in fact the whole square had the vibe of a local hangout. It's a bit trendier and more modern than many of the other restaurants in Florence, so was fun for a change. Funky decor, young crowd, and just felt like a very "cool" hangout. Not packed to the gills, but it was a Tuesday in February so no promises for what it's like in July.
We shared roasted cuttlefish filled with tabbouleh, and pici with duck sauce. Oh mah god. The cuttlefish was fine - very well cooked, served with a nice bulgur salad inside, blah blah blah THE PICI WITH DUCK SAUCE. That stuff was magic. If I knew duck could be this delicious I'd spend more time feeding them by the riverside...to fatten them up and then eat them. Soft, tender, succulent meat in a complex and rich sauce, good lord. Can this be my last meal? We were nearly fighting over it.
I think we had dessert, and wine, but all else is forgotten. Service was a bit slow. I know it's Italy and that's normal but it was hard to get her attention at the beginning (I know it's always hard at the end when you want the bill). STILL. Brave the crowds, wait for service, do what you need to do - get the pici with duck sauce and be happy.
