“A real gem”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

This place looks like a hole in the wall on a quiet little side street, but looks are deceiving. There are only three tables. But the food is outstanding and they are very knowledgeable about wine. We shared a salumi and fontina cheese platter and we blown away by how good it was.

“Hard to find, but worth the search”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

When you find this little tratoria, you will be treated to the best sevice you can ever expect. The lovely couple that started this two meter, three table (maybe 3 1/2 and a small bar) place will sit you down and negotiate what you are going to eat. No menu--Trust them. It appears everything is local and organic. They know the farmers.
The food is what you hope to find in a good restaurant and better. Since the back tables are close together, most of the meal was joined with a lot of conversation. By the time the cheesecake and coffee were ordered by the new comittee. we knew who went to school and where. Wine and Grappa were refilled and we left.
In every regard it was one of the best restaurant experiences we have every had in Italy. You have to make reservations, but they work with English well enough to get you through.

“Do not miss this”
Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

Ok so I'm all for trying new things but had I found this restaurant at the beginning of my trip to Florence I would have gone here every night for dinner. We had the best food ever. The pork bruschetta is to die for and the lasagne too and the chocolate dessert and the blueberry cheesecake. It was all delicious. The atmosphere was perfect and u can tell the owners love what they do. If u love excellent tasty food with an artisan feel go here. The wine was also beautiful. It is an experience not just dinner. I would come back to Florence just to eat here. Two starters, two main courses, two desserts, two glasses of house wine and 4 espressos came to €50 !!!!

“Amazing and authentic”
Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

Once we read the reviews, we had to try this place and lucky for us it was just around the corner from our hotel. We were not disappointed. This was some of the best food we've had on this trip (and we've, uh, had a LOT of food, to put it mildly). The couple that runs this tiny place are clearly passionate about the food and it shows. You walk in, the wife lets you know what she has that day, she recommends wines, and you go for it. Gnocchi a la romana, pasta with salmon, amazing meats and cheeses, and we topped it off with these chocolates ranging from milk, to white to dark and a chocolate and pear cake (oh.my.god.) washed down with Cuban rum. One the one hand, I didn't want to tell you about this place. On the other, these people deserve all the business they can get and more, and God, I hope they're still there next time I'm in Florence. If you're serious about your food, and not just any old thing will do, you need to come here.

“An ' interesting' experience but not one we'd wish to repeat”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Specialises in Tuscan food.

The space is a very, very small, with barely room to get by. There are three-and-half tables, the three at the back are tightly packed and suitable for 2 people, the 'half' table at the front being suitable for a single person. When we were there, the only Italians were a couple who'd popped in, late in the evening, for a coffee.

The restaurant is run by a husband and wife team, the husband preparing the boards of cold food (eg. a cheese selection, types of different pork and salamis, a tasting plate of chocolate), the wife is front-of-house. Both are very friendly and trilingual. There is some hot food, the majority is cold though (eg. cheese/meat/chocolate plates). What we ate was good. The prices are relatively reasonable: for instance, our meal for two of cost about EU60, the meal consisting of 2 generous-sized glasses of delicious wine, lasagne & ribolitto, a small pecorino tasting plate and one including different cold meats, two deserts & coffees.

It was an interesting experience and we certainly don't regret going. Would we go back? Very unlikely.
