Service really low profile, food low profile despite you are in Florence also the steak is nothing too special. Very noisy and with no chance to chat with other people at the same table.

This is a local lunch, dinner and late night place that is popular with locals and an overflow from the pub next door. Quite busy when there is an event at the arena. My experience was different from some of the other reviewers, in particular i found the service to be ok and the food, particularly the penne pasta to... More

Bad food normal service. The food is poor and the place was full when ive been there. The servant was nice but forgot lot of things. Probably because they had a lot of people.

Just finished a great plate of pasta and a wonderful steak. Full of locals, friendly wait staff... tough to beat a place like this on the quiet side of Florence.

The menu has a selection of "standard fare" Italian. Pasta, pizza, some simple second courses. Nothing special about any of it. The menu is only in Italian, so good luck if you're a tourist and not a local.

Very popular restaurant / pizzeria. Usually packed during weekends when it gets almost impossible to talk. I think the food was of a rather average quality, poorly presented. The service was slow (waited more than 40' for antipasti) and a bit careless. Maybe we were just not lucky that evening but i would definitely not recommended it.

This is a family style restaurant packed with Florentines. Saturday nights are crowded and noisy. Food is generally good and down to earth. I like their pizza. Prices are average for Florence, neither exorbitant nor particularly economical. Located near the football stadiun at Campo di Marte, it is a sure bet that you won't find yourself surrounded by tourists. Service... More
