The food nothing special to boring, no ambiance and the prices to high comparing to the quality of the food. We were recommended this restaurant from the staff at our hotel (the only bad recommendation they did). We left without ordering deserts, coffee and avec. Don’t go there.

Both had a seafood starter- definitely from frozen. Waiter was the grumpiest git known to mankind. Steak was ok, but on the whole id avoid it like the plague. Whoever rated it 5 stars was either high or clueless. Spent 60 euros- save your money...

This restaurant was right around the corner from our hotel rosso 23 and a short walk from the duomo and train station. It seems to be a family run place with a most intriguing cabinet for a backdrop to the cash counter against which the owner/ manager stands. But the remaining decor was traditional and nothing different from the usual florence restaurants. The food was fine, nothing leapt out in particular. The almond based cake post dinner was a bit overwhelming. But we had a relaxing evening here. Service was good, the senior waiter was busy but watchful and ensured we were looked after. The prices are quite reasonable and this is probably the biggest reason i would go back.

The best thing i have eaten here was the ' pasta con vongole' {pasta with clams} I have come here very often , and very late at night ... and this place is always very busy. Thumbs up.

I eat here often when I'm working in Florence and love the friendly atmosphere! There is nothing more Tuscan than fresh panzanella and steak Florentine (two of my favorites). They also make great eggplant parmesean and gnocchi with a four cheese sauce:). There's a good mix of locals and tourists.
