Service is horrible in this restaurant. We were with 6 friends and ordered starters, so far fine. Than 2 maincourses were served before the plates were taken away. The 2 with the maincourse waited for the other dishes to arrive. But they did not, other tables were also served partial dishes. We waited for 10 minutes for the other 4... More

Dear my guests. You had better to revise what you wrote. I think you made such a scene for paying not the bill. You had already your dishes on the table when you stood up... and on Saturday evening, when the restaurant is fully-booked, you cannot make a problem for waiting only 10 minutes. We remind you that we only... More

Simply great Italian meat. Properly served and above all cooked. Get an appetizer and a Fiorentina. You will not be disappointed

We arrived here by searching online after being unable to get into the restaurant we were planning for. The food was great, the value excellent and the atmosphere and service wonderful. The fog machine and party lights on the ceiling came to good use to celebrate two birthdays in the restaurant that night. The owner is apparently actually an owner/chef/greeter/DJ... More

We came here while staying with family and visiting Pizza & Florence. It's out of the way and unless you had been told about it not somewhere you would think of going.. However if you do you would not be disappointed, the environment was welcoming and relaxed and the food delicious! We were well looked after and went for a... More

I've been several times for meals at Sciabolino, and I have always returned for the Florentine steak that I really like. The service has never been anything exceptional and the prices are average. Over the years the service has deteriorated noticeably, and unfortunately the rudeness ruins any meal. It’s unacceptable especially that the owner makes a difference between customers and... More

Friends and I (including young children) visited the Trattoria on a Saturday for a later lunch (13:30), after reserving a table that same day in the late morning. A large group of travellers occupied a long table on one side of the restaurant and there were a few more tables occupied. The single waiter provided good but slow service. Had... More

Turned up on recommendation of hosts @ the excellent I Melograni b&b nearby and it was fully booked.... and when we returned, having reserved, we understood why. Good choice of food and wine list, food excellently prepared, good service and all in all excellent value for money. They also coped very well with our lack of Italian. Recommend highly if... More
