“Bellisimo!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

We stumbled across this gem of a restaurant by accident and were unaware of any reviews it had had on trip advisor. We arrived there on a Monday evening at about 6ish we soon realised how lucky we had been to get a table as the restaurant started to fill up pretty quickly. So if you do not have a reservation it might be better to turn up earlier than than later. The staff were very welcoming and made us feel very comfortable. Our lack of Italian was not a hindrance as the menu has an English translation accompanying each dish so you know exactly what you will be eating.
We chose a starter of a classic bruschetta. It was absolutely delicious and there was no problem that we ordered one starter to share between the two of us. Our main course was a Sea bass dish with crispy potatoes and accompanied it with a selection of grilled mixed vegetables. It was superb, the presentation was good and the flavour, delicious.We just had mineral water to drink. But the whole bill for the two of us was just about 44 Euros. When we paid the bill we were presented with a bag with some complimentary Cantuccini, almond biscuits , also delicious.
We loved the place and the food so much we went back three times trying different dishes. The pasta is amazing and if you have any room left I strongly recommend the creamy yoghurt cake with strawberries ....yummy.
You must give your taste buds a treat and try this restaurant. Well worth it.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

We booked this restaurant after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. The food, service and atmosphere were brilliant, would recommend to friends visiting Florence. Make sure you book though as this restaurant is very popular.

I had a steak and my wife had a past dish with lobster and shrimp. The steak was very good and the seafood pasta was excellent.

“Loved it enough to go back a second time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

We went the first time because of the excellent Trip Advisor ratings. We went back the second time because we really enjoyed the food, the wine selection, and the cozy atmosphere. Good idea to make reservations.
