You know what? People are right. This restaurant is a little touristy, and filled with tourists, but it really doesn't matter. I'm giving this place excellent for the following three reasons: 1. the food was good. Legitimately good. It might not be the cutting-edge trendiest right now restaurant of the moment, but by god it's enjoyable. The pastas and desserts were wonderful. 2. The service was incredible. Affable, jovial, not American-levels overbearing, but welcoming and warm - it's the first time I've eaten in a restaurant (and I've eaten in a lot of restaurants) where I actually felt like the waiters cared and the waiters knew your name. I don't know if it's a performance, but it's a genuinely authentic seeming one if so. It actually makes your experience of eating the meal far happier. My whole family left smiling. The wonderful manageress who gave us gifts on both evenings we ate there (yes, twice) made it a great experience too. Touristy or no, Michelin star or no, if I return to Florence I will definitely return here.
