Best steak I’ve ever had. The place was small and intimate, perfect for couples. The waiter was really friendly and helpfully, which only added to the experience. Would highly recommend to anyone coming to Florence, well worth a visit.

We first visited this restaurant in 2005 and decided to try it again this time in Florence. .I think ownership of the restaurant has changed since 2017 but the food and service were just as good and I would highly recommend it

The restaurant is next to Basilica of Santa Croce. The food was normal and service quality was fine as the waiter was busy with group people and we have been ignored. I couldn't search any WiFi signal from the restaurant. Probably there is not WiFi...More

Casual, relaxed place for lunch or dinner. We were told to make reservations, but probably not necessary. There are a few outdoor tables. Food was good, authentic. Adequate meal, nothing special to note.

Nearby
Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
