This small restaurant is frequented by Italians as well as tourists — there appeared to be a special table for regulars. The menu was authentic — when querying an item the waiter came up with "Intestine" — not our thing, but a good sign. Reassuring restricted choice, need to wait while they cook it, interesting local wines, helpful friendly waitress.... More

We came here on local recommendation on our first night in Firenze and were not disappointed. High quality italian food at great prices and very charismatic service made this a very pleasant evening! We had the primi piattis of pasta with tomatoes,chili, parsley and garlic, and the veggie dish with fried zuchini flowers which was great!!

As very experienced travellers we always try to make friends with the waiter but on this occasion we failed from minute one. We are quiet English/Canadians and are always polite, particular as we need help translating the menu. Our unsmiling, unsympathetic waiter was not a good ambassador for his calling or his country..perhaps he was of the old school and... More

This place was recommended to us by our Airbnb host, and it did not disappoint. Wonderful pasta dishes and lovely friendly service. In fact we loved it so much we went back the next night. I was a little apprehensive to order something different in case it didn't compare to the previous night, but it was even better. I visit... More

Very tasty pasta dishes and steak Florentine. Great wine and atmosphere. Family friendly and a mix of locals and tourists. I highly recommend if you're in Florence.

As recommended by the lovely receptionist at our hotel just down the road, we were excited to dine at what she had said would be a local trattoria, away from the many tourist traps in central Florence. At first, we were impressed by the atmosphere and the outdoor terrace. We ordered a greek salad to share and a pasta dish... More

This is an AMAZING place where you can get authentic Tuscan food beautifully cooked, portions are generous. Price point is superb! Get Spaghetti alla Carrettiera, a tomato-garlic-spicy-parsley sauce that I loved, simple, tasty, you would eat the plate as well. A place you MUST try if you are either Florentine by birth or by heart.

Maybe we ordered the wrong food, maybe we got them on a bad night, maybe I cook too well myself? But, our experience was poor and the food average! We were served room temperature sparkling wine and asked very politely if we could have it cold, he walked away shaking his head and brought us an ice cooler back. We... More
