We found this cozy restuarant very close to Santa Croce and ate there several days. It is a family owned business and the owner Misha is a very friendly host who takes pride in the delicous meals made in Italian and also Russian style. We had both and we were delighted. The soups are unique and made fresh and the... More

I came in this restaurant with some friends to have lunch.. The first dish (pasta) was delicious, however, on the second dish of my friend (she ordered a salad), we saw a live earthworm. We complained to the waitress so she apologized and gave my friend a new dish (still salad). We thought that there would be no more problems.... More

We enjoyed a good unfussy lunch here. It was good value and the service good and friendly. There was sufficient variety for the family to select from, and all went away happy. Just off the Piazza San Croce, and being "just off", much cheaper than being on the square. Recommend.

Walked past it, went in, delighted! Four hours of Uffizi (8.15 entry) & Santa Croce enjoyed, we were ready for an early lunch just after noon. Intending to walk back into the city, we saw this restaurant and feet & appetites said, "Stop here!". It was a good decision. There are two or three pavement tables, but we went inside... More

A restaurant so good it makes you want to write a review for the first time. Best gnocchi and bruschetta I've ever had, the staff were lovely and very helpful letting us use their wifi and the cost was very affordable. Came back the next day for more.
