We ordered the bistecca alla fiorentina and it was excellent. Tender, perfectly grilled, and well seasoned. Came back the next night for pizza and again they hit it out of the park. A bit pricy but you get what you pay for.

Each of our party of four had pizza here. Although I have had better pizza elsewhere in Florence during a previous visit, the wood-fired pizza was still very satisfying. Excellent crust and good cheese and sauce. I just wish the pizza had a slightly more wood-fired taste. Service very friendly. Dinner was a very positive experience. The place was very popular, so reservations are suggested.

Very nice dinner or pizza in Florence. Reasonably priced meals in a comfortable atmosphere, usually open late with bar seating as well.

After three art visits in one morning, we had decided we wanted pizza for lunch but didn't want somewhere too touristy. After battling through several tour parties, the bane of Florence, we finally came across this wine bar/restaurant which seemed to have an extensive pizza menu.

Inside it was a haven of calm with a few locals and a couple of tables full of people eating happily. There are more spaces than first appears as the room goes on quite a way and you can take one of the many seats along the bar too. Sitting here trying to read all the wine labels would be a nice job another time.

You can choose whole wheat pizza with only Tuscan ingredients if you wish but we stuck to pizza with bresaola and rucola (not on every menu here) and a capricciosa type calzone. When they appeared it was clear they had been cooked in a wood fire with the freshest of ingredients and both were generously sized and delicious. A cool peroni and a glass of basic house White went down well too.

There seemed to be an older lady in charge, educating the newer staff in the way to make a proper espresso and perhaps it was her influence but my husband said it was probably the best coffee he had had since arriving in Florence four days ago, served in a lovely glass espresso cup.

La Mamma might also be responsible for the pristine state of the toilets - again not something to be taken for granted here and definitely appreciated by weary art lovers.
