Recommended by our hotel. The restaurant had recently moved location and we were the only customers. Great food, innovative menu, well presented dishes and good staff. This restaurant is worth searching out.

The patio is lined with the most fragrant jasmine. The decor is simple and elegant, but not imposing. You can see into the kitchen from the dining room, watching the most lovely Italian woman cooking. Dinner was perfection, parmesan flan, seabass lasagna with fresh lemon peel, and warm pineapple cake. The location is lovely, in a quaint side street. Worth every second.

This intimate restaurant was tucked away on a quite side street. We decided to go inside even thought at 9PM not one person was eating at the tables. We were greeted kindly and escorted to this beautiful garden with a roof of jasmine vines. The aromas from the flowers and the soft lights was the perfect setting for what would be an unforgettable dinner experience and the wine list did not disappoint either. We returned 3 days later with our friends (8 of us) for an incredible lunch.

We booked this for my birthday on the recommendations in Tripadvisor. It was very quiet and the waiter, without being rude, did not pay us much attention. The food was disappointing - salmon balls that were so dry they crumbled; an amusebouche that was a thick lentil soup. It was disappointing for the prices they charged.

We were Florence over the Christmas holidays and wanted to try Cavolo Nero due to other reviews, but had found it closed. We are glad we tried again and found it open on the our last night in Florence for a truly memorable meal. As a family of foodies, I can truly say their food is worth the trek to dind them (not that far or hard to find really.) We were the only people dining in the place that night and felt bad for the restaurant, but apparently this was just due to the holiday time. please go, you will enjoy. Pretty room -- more modern and romantic. Great fish dishes, nice presentations, delicious desserts. And a bit different than the traditional dishes which, although good, can get a bit repetitious-- Cavolo Nero was a great break
