We did not get the food in time so we could eat all together. 3 out of 20 never get their dinner. 4 out of 20 never had the opportunity to order wine. This was the worst service ever. The Prosecco was not empty and anyway the servant took it away from the table We will never go back and... More

I am offering a review unrelated to a dining experience, but indicative of the quality of the ownership and service of this establishment. My daughter and I were caught during a rain storm late at night in Florence and had no ability to call a taxi due to a local soccer event on the other side of town. We found... More

Sometimes when a hotel sends you to a restaurant, the experience is just adequate. But we were very tired after our long trip so we took the recommendation and made a reservation. This restaurant is wonderful. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, the food is amazing, the ambience is sophisticated without being off-putting. And this is one of the best... More

This is is very lovely restaurant in a good location in Florence. Clean, pleasant, elegant decor. Service is professional. They have a good selection of fresh fish and seafood. Had an excellent Ligurian style turbot and outstanding raw scampi along with other raw fish tartars. They do good meats also, very good filetto. Pretty decent wine selection.

The food is so amazing here!! Cosimo was an absolute delight and so is the entire staff. We had a three course meal that was both beautiful in presentation AND delicious! We appreciated the English menu and staff was very accommodating. The restaurant itself is simple and elegant. Even the bathrooms are beautiful! I highly recommend this restaurant! We will... More

Had to send back food, not edible. Too expensive for bad food . The food was less than mediocre for a high price. Would never return.

We ate here the last night of our stay in Firenze. I am gluten free and they made me a special meal. Red snapper cooked with potatoes, tomatoes and olives. Plus, the waiter suggesting that I drizzle the fish with olive oil? Oh my! How delightful was that! It's a bit obscure - out in a neighborhood but I suggest... More

We stayed just out of the tourist district close to Campo di Matre station and found this restaurant by chance during our frequent walks around the area. Florence is not a big city and the taxi and bus transport is good so all places are easy to get to. The restaurant has an exceptional reputation for great fish, they say... More
