We went for a late dinner at this restaurant and had a really great time. Good pasta, excellent service and a friendly Sicilian on the table next to us made this a special meal. Loved the ambiance and the more authentic vibe.

The food at this community restaurant was reasonable. However the service was very rushed and impatient. The waiter was not very helpful when we enquired more about the food. They even forgot the wine which we ordered. Eventhough there were many other families there, they...More

Funny because the three owners Franco, Valentino and Mario are from southern Italy but they seem to have learned the lesson well, much better that other so called "tuscan trattoria"

Always reliable food and service. Long time owners do a terrific job with fish as well as i primi. Try the lasagne sometime!

Don't waste your time or money. The service was atrocious; we were repeatedly ignored after multiple attempts to get our waiter's attention as he tended to Italian guests who arrived after us. To top it off, our orders were incorrect and the steak - ordered...More

We enjoyed the food at this simple trattoria, in particular for the very good quality of the dishes. The seriously large portions were almost too large! The extremely fresh (and locally picked) arugula salad with large shavings of parmigiano, and fresh artichokes was excellent, and...More

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great
company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo
Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the
staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and
they cannot help but stare at the architectural
masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria
