We decided to visit this place for lunch based on the excellent reviews at Tripadvisor. The host was very welcoming and pleasant. We ordered a pasta dish each and a shrimp dish made with cognac, which we shared. Overall, we liked the food - especially the shrimp dish which is very recommendable. That being said, I have to admit that... More

We started with appetizers of bruschetta and grilled octopus. Then my friends had sea bass and I had a steak filet toppled with light white sauce and truffle. All delicioso. We had wine too. Service excellent. A little pricey but worth it.

Excellent service and nice location could not balance the quality of cooking,I would define: nonsense.everything was wrong.from the cheese flan,tasty but COLD inside. To the ossobuco: wrong meat,wrong cooking( needed another hour!) hard as rock,and the m tomato sauce sour....and why add celery and carrots?this man not only is not florentine,he must be from some crazy country..or in a hurry!...

My family and I were fortunate to have been recommended this restaurant by our hotelier. We ended up going there two nights in a row because we enjoyed the wonderful steaks, grilled vegetables and pasta! Sasha, our waiter, was superb as well! This restaurant is near the Mercado Centrale area on a quiet side street. Charming and delicious.

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel, and we really enjoyed it. It's in a small side street and we ate outside. Great service, food & wine, with complimentary proseco and limoncella. It was relatively early in the evening, about 7pm, and the restaurant was not too busy.

It can be hit or miss when roaming the streets of tourist cities but did we discover a gem. I usually only write reviews if some place is wonderful or horrible, luckily for me (and now you) this was just wonderful. A simple decorated location with excellent service and food. But not stiff or uptight.... just perfect really. So, on... More

We ate here for our first meal in Italy. We had high expectations and it did not disappoint. Our hotel made us a reservation and with the nice weather we were able to eat at one of their streetside tables. The restaurant is located down a quiet lane so it was very pleasant being outside. The waiter was very helpful... More
