The maneger seemed a bit arrogant and tourist unfriendly but we had a great time by our selves and the help of our waiter Alessandro. We had a small bistecca (1.1 kg), cold cuts, pizza and good wine. Everything we had was very tasty.

Small meals for an expensive price. Did not feel taken care of since we were given weird looks from multiple waiters

This restaurant was a tourist trap! Not authentic and the waiters were not welcoming. I recommend finding a more authentic restaurant in town. The meals were very small. It was a terrible experience because we didn’t speak Italian.More

Our pasta dishes were delicious. Nice place and good prices. The only remark would be the size of the portions, small. If you eat too much, you will need a main course.

Great place. Loved both the food & service. Waiter recommended sicilian white wine that's delightful and fruity. Meat appetizers & tomato soup were delicious. Portions big enough for us. Ravioli in tomato sauce were great as well!

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
