We managed to jostle our way into this popular Florentine eatery and just about squeezed onto stools at a table for 4. The menus all in Italian, were written on a chalkboard/poster displayed at the counter and after much effort at trying to decode the...More

This is a lovely, unassuming, authentic restaurant which is open only for lunch and takes no reservations. It’s a family run small cookery which is packed with locals and tourists alike. We had one of the best Bisteccas alla Fiorentina during our stay in tuscany...More

For sure the best fiorentina steak (bistecca fiorentina) we’ve had in my life. The atmosphere is unique and always crowded - but worth waiting... The staff was so nice, they even invited our 10-year old to the kitchen to watch chef Mario cook. Amazing memories!...More

Fantastic restaurant for those seeking a more 'authentic' Italian dining experience at lunchtime. Bookings aren't taken in advance; you show up at the door, and if they can't fit you in (as was the case with us) you'll be given a time to return. Tables...More
