A bit pricy but deep fried courgette flowers and chicken was superb. Not a mass of chicken and only small amounts on the bone but the batter was to die for. Nice location to watch the world go by and we finished with Cantuccini biscuits...More

This is the worst meal we eaten in all of Italy! You're better off eating the donar across the street. The first tip off was that even the free bread was bad. The music was also just as unbearable. I mean who likes James Blunt...More

Nice service. Food a mixed bag. Ribollata soup was all bread, no broth. Almost like eating stuffing. Grilled chicken with greens and tomatoes very good. A sliced pork dish with leeks and Gorgonzola, not so good. Sauce very heavy and rich. A bit disappointing.

We really enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent. Antipasti was very good quality and the beef in tomato sauce and the pork in gorgonzola with leeks were both fantastic. Very extensive Chianti wine list.
