“Authentic Amusing Fascinating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2012

One of the best places in Florence.. a restaurant that's a theatre that's a library and a living room too, a parlor and a gastronomy shop! typical tuscan dishes, cooked in a simple way but so tasty and good! fish and meat, all served on a big buffet. The dishes come when they are cooked directly from the kitchen's windows right to the tables. After dinner you can have the chance to watch a show, a performance, a theatre piece, a music concert.. something sad or funny or amusing or simply entertaining.. you can eat and drink red and white wine with the formula "all you can eat", upon payment of a 1 year membership card and the fixed dinner price (25€) although you can come here for lunch too.. i honestly never did that, i guess they must have different prices or a brunch, dont know.. anyway it's a great experience, you will enjoy it!

“A great and different evening out.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2011

This is just a very good entertaining night out. This was our second visit, the food is good and fun and just lots of small different selections, plenty of it with wine available. The performance this time was excellent but we were told it was in English. Although we understood a lot, we were asked by one of the organisers if we would have liked more English. Do go and join the club.

“highlight of our trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2010

Fabulous food, good company, entertaining chef and setting and a wonderful concert. Check ahead (on line or have your hotel contact them) to find out what the entertainment will be and pick your date based on that. Incredible value as the chef owns and operates one of the most expensive and highly-rated restaurants in Florence. They serve breakfast and lunch, too, and you can hang out between meals as it is a private club, which you join for only 5Euro per year. Dinner and entertainment for 35Euro per person in Florence? Unbelievable. Can't wait to return.

“A grand evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2007

This is a dinner/theater easily accessible in central Florence. You dine at 7:00 followed by a show at 9 ish. Food is prepared by a distinguished chef in a visible kitchen. Each of many items is announced with much flair and then presented onto a large table for buffet serving. The food is varied and delicious.There's no English used so, if you're not comfortable with Italian, you may want to avoid the rare stand up comedy program on the stage. When we attended, we saw two ladies who did a hilarious singing/comedy program that was wonderful. You buy a 5 euro membership, then pay 25 euros for a multi course dinner that includes wine, dessert and coffee. The wine is nothing to write home about, but, if you want, you can buy fine bottles for your table. It's really a " don't miss" activity when visiting this lovely city. Make a reservation through your hotel/b&b host so that you'll not be disappointed as it is popular.
