“Excellent Find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

We happened upon this restaurant while walking in Florence. We were hungry but were afraid this place would be touristy and didn't want to go. As we walked by we realized that there appeared to be a lot of locals in the back half of hte restaurant so we rethought our decision and decided to give it a try. The service was excellent. The seating area was a comfortable temperature even though it was hot outside and they had the doors open. The food was amazing, my husband had ravioli which was outstanding and i had prosciutto/blue cheese pizza which was also outstanding. Would definitely recommend.

“Great Casual Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

We ate here 3 times during our stay in Florence!

The wood-fire cooked pizza is wonderful, and the service is excellent. After our first meal there, the staff remembered us for the rest of the week. (and Leo is a pretty nice guy)

“I ate here almost every single day.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

We were in Florence for about three weeks and ate here almost every day.

Some days we would get a quick pizza to go from the brick oven. Other days we would have a sit down meal.

The staff was always very friendly and very accommodating to different cultures with no hassles.

I really liked it that the price on the menu was everything included. No hidden fees or sitting charges.

When visiting Florence you will at some point walk past this place. The road from the back of the Duomo to the Ufizzi via the Bargello runs right past it. In fact it is located directly across from the Bargello and the Badia Tower.

“YUM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

My mom and I stumbled upon this place while walking back to our hotel. We noticed that the menu was big, so we decided to check it out. I ordered the lasagna, and it was probably my favorite meal since being in Italy. It was a perfect portion for lunch! I definitely would recommend going here!!
