We only had 6 nights in Florence and found ourselves at this special restaurant twice. The food was phenomenal, great wine, amazing service, and staff happy to go out their way and bend over backwards for the needs of the customer. Francessco, the restaurant owner made the experience with his warm and generous personality. A must go, highly recommended to... More

This tucked away restaurant has a relaxed and authentic atmosphere. The terrace provides a beautiful view and the food and service provided is of the highest standard.

We didn't have a reservation as it was a spontaneous idea to go to this restaurant. The staff kindly received us and invited to sit down on the beautiful terrace which looks over the Tuscan hills. Food was very delicious (Fiorentina steak is a must have) and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It was one of our best... More

Suggested Rules 1) Go Italian i.e. allow time to eat 2) Sit outside and admire the view of the (bustling) Florence 3) Sit, relax, enjoy, chill, breath in the hill-side air 4) Have some local red (or white) wine BEFORE you begin your perusal of the menu 5) go to 1! Sinfully, we only had time for a quick lunch,... More

Stunning location. The terrace at the back feels like eating in a little vinyard with views looking out over the valley. Exceptional food. Only a few things to choose from but really really good. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Would go back just to go here. A MUST go place.

Had a very pleasant dinner at this restaurant. The young waiter was very courteous and attentive right from the moment we arrived. The restaurant has a pleasing ambience and is not crammed. We shared a lovely platter to start of cheese and prosciutto crudo. This was followed by a mouth-watering dish of pork accompanied by caramelised apple and fennel for... More

Despite being a busy Sunday, our lunch was served within a reasonable amount of time. The food was delicious! We ordered pappardelle with porcini and it was loaded with silky porcini mushrooms. We also got tagliata, which was cooked to perfection. Vino rosso della casa (house red wine) was also quite good. If you want to eat well, relax, and... More

I went here several times and have to say I've always been impressed by the relaxing atmosphere you can have here. Just a few minutes far away from the crowd you can enjoy a lovely dinner in the garden. Food is good and service is fair

Very nice family-restaurant with a tipical Italian food. Tasty steak, pasta but no fish. Could be also nice for vegeterians because of big variety of delicious vegeteble and mushroom dishes. Pleasent Italian atmosphere. I advise it, especially for a romantic evening!
