If you are looking for a relaxing breakfast or lunch with good meal and a relaxing ambient, this is the place. Cozy and green for all the varieties of plants around the tables in the garden, you can also find a nice flower shop nearby. The food is simple and good, great break.

Very strange but pleasant restaurant. There is a florist inside so the atmosphere is relaxing, there is the perfume of the food and of the flowers. The prices are adequate. Just a note: the menu is always the same.. Try to change something!

Nice situated restaurant in a garden (orto). Menu in different languages. Good food. I had the roast beef for main course which was very good but just had a little too much olive oil on it to my liking.

High quality ingredients, expert service, very comfortable setting in a former greenhouse/flower shop type of setting. Not formal, but manages to be fun and elegant. Excellent champagne to accompany taglierini alla bottarga is my absolute favourite reccomendation

I really liked the decor and style of this place, I went with two friends living in Empoli to catch up and we had a great time! It is a really nice place to get a coffee, and although I didn't try one the homemade cakes looked delicious!

Beautiful, cozy restaurant located in the heart of Empoli, a 5 minutes walk from the train station. Simple, fresh Tuscan food. I would recommend the ‘Fassone Piemontese’ a premium beef from the region Piemonte, amazing food! Great food and service for a good price!

A very special place, you can think you are in another sweet world. Design of local is so nice and for a tea and a piece of cake you can really forget your life for 30 minutes. Good for lunch and good for dogs, if you have with you!

Recommended by our hotel. Service was a bit surly and we were ignored for awhile but did improve. The food was very good and worth it! We came back the next day but unexpectedly, they were closed!
