“Wonderful for what it is”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

We ate upstairs at the Osteria rather than at the more elegant restaurant. Food was excellent and reasonable. Good local wine list. We loved it and went back several times while in Florence. Only draw back was that the dining room was very hot.

“Excellent Peposo”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

We visited this restaurant based on Trip Advisor recommendations, and we were not disappointed. While we had to wait, we were treated to an open view of the kitchen, which was clean, and efficient, using classic ingredients and techniques. We were seated in a rather low basement, which seemed to be for English speaking tourists, but the wait staff couldn't have been more gracious. The peposo was the traditional recipe, and quite delicious. One of our group had a pasta with honey and walnuts that was also delicious.

“The best on "my-range"”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

For those like me who want a typical Tuscan(Florentine) small Restaurant ( Trattoria) and don't want posh-expensive nor posh-intellectual, this is the place.

Historical Tuscan recipes like a 15th Century stew as "Peposo" or a 17th century wild-boar like "Porco Cinghiale" or ... many more out of a menu which sound like "poetry" .
Relax in a very "local" neighborhood full of nice graffiti, bicycles, scooters and not many tourists.
I'm sure you'll enjoy the experience.

“surprisingly good”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

The outside isn't promising and there's plenty of graffiti. But the food is interesting, freshly and enthusiastically cooked, delicious and not over-priced. Beware the grumpy waitress though!
