When you see the small place before entering the restaurant, you don't expect the quality of the food and service. All the starters were great, and the "Bistecca fiorentica", unforgettable. The best thing is to enjoy the place and the background music with a good wine!

Grazie for a fantastic visit. I see some 3 and 4 star reviews and I wonder why!!!! This place has the food that all Italian restaurants hope to have with the service to match. I had the osso bucco with an appetizer....and our night was complete. My reviews have been mostly negative. It when I have a good experience I... More

I had the Ravioli with a Blue Cheese sauce with fried sage and caramalised Shallots which was... More

Phenomenal experience, phenomenal service & phenomenal food! We've been in Italy for more than a week now and this is the absolute best my husband and I have had yet... possibly the best meal we've EVER had. Staff is warm, friendly, explains everything to you and is very attentive. Atmosphere is intimate and cosy but great for friends and families... More

Friends who know Florence better than we do took us there, and boy, are we glad they did! The atmosphere is charming, with cork-lined walls (literally, lined with wine-corks); the service is charming young men; the food was excellent. My husband and I each had an appetizer, then split a veal cutlet with a couple of sides -- all excellent.... More

The most amazing dinner in Florence ....I had the angel and demon gnocchi which melted in my mouth and had such amazing flavor. The prosecco was just as amazing ! Service was immaculate and most attentive

Have dined twice in last month and will go back again! Food is simply delicious! Pasta in the parmasean wheel (pici buchetta) is divine - as were all pastas and Osso Buco was another winning meal...cant go wrong with the steak...owner Maurizio is warm, welcoming and accomodating - will recommend to all my friends and family!

I've eaten here three times - once two years ago and then twice while visiting Florence two weeks ago. The service is second to none. Always a smile and great recommendations. The food is excellent! My husband had the Florentine Steak with my daughter and they loved it! I had the Pappardelle with pork ragu and it was excellent. Definitely... More

We came here due to the glowing reviews and were looking forward to some Italian cuisine. When we arrived, we were asked to come back in 45 minutes; so we went to a nearby pub, had a starter and a drink and came back at the time given. When we came back, we weren't greeted or acknowledged. So, I eventually... More

If you are looking for bistecca alla fiorentina this is the place to go! They brought out a piece of steak and weighed it in front of us before cooking it. The service was great and the cheesecake for dessert was phenomenal!
