Away from the crowds, you may need a good map to find this place. We got lost a couple of times before making it there. The restaurant was full with locals, and although they offer an English menu, we were the only foreigners in sight. The food was excellent and the service was extra friendly. Highly recommend!

Was recommended this place by our hostel and it did not disappoint. Had a tasty florentine steak (1kg) for about 30euro. Service was friendly and the meat was fresh and delicious! Free limoncello afterwards a plus

The friend veggies app is amazing. Food was amazing and atmosphere is like a homestyle meal. I had grilled eggplant, sister had lasagna, and friend had steak strips with gorgonzola. All great.

My girlfriend and I ate here on our first night in Florence at the recommendation from our hotel, Residenza Vespucci. Given our previous 8 days in Rome (4) and Sorrento (4), we found this to be very different, and probably not up-to-par with those other areas. However, had we started here, it might be a different tale, as it definitely was better than most food we eat in the States.

We had a house red carafe which was good and started with an Antipasta that was unlike anything we've ever had. It had a very rich spread of sun-dried tomatoes, chicken liver pate on bread, a concoction of cheese/bread crumbs, pickled eggplant, and an egg roll with meat and cheese. This was followed by a huge mista salad, which was average. For our meals, we had a veal cutlet with tomatoes and rigatoni with meat sauce (not red), both of which were good but too much at that point.

The service was good, but language was tough - clearly not a touristy place.

Overall, the food is very rich and maybe worth a try, but we found better places.

We would never have found this place off the touristic centre without recommendation from our hotel. We arrived early and the restaurant was empty but two hours later, it was crammed with people, most of them locals. Their speciality is red meat that they grill to perfection! Despite of the many customers, the owner took the time to talk to us and show us his wine cellar from where we got small bottles of wine and olive oil as gifts. When we had finished the meal, they put half a bottle of limoncello onto our table as a 'digestif'. It was so delicious that we emptied it. A bit embarrassed about ourselves, we proposed to pay for the bottle which almost was considered an insult - the next bottle of limoncello arrived within seconds! Oh what a night ... and a place not to miss ...
