We started with house red wine and a Cheese platter appetizer that came with two types of wonderful cheeses, toasted bread, and a fig with cocoa spread and a killer truffle-infused honey spread. The truffle was very concentrated, and over the top. We are three types of vegetarian pastas: one with a creamy cheese sauce, one stuffed with chestnut meal,... More

I recommend the fettuccini with porcini mushroom sauce and the sliced beef steak (rare) with porcini mushrooms, in this homey small diningbroom with friendly service in this English speaker-friendly restaurant in this Florence suburb.

If you do not appreciate meat then you will love their pasta. This is a tucked away very typical Tuscan eatery. The ambiance is perfect and the service friendly. It can be a little noisy at times as the locals love this place. The wine list is very good and you can trust the server to direct to an appropriate... More

Tremendous small trattoria on the outskirts of Florence. The food is high quality and generous in rustic Tuscan style. This place does not set out to be a fine dining experience and is all the better for it! We shared the hunters plate antipasti which was a truly fantastic serving of various wild boar and game meats. This was followed... More

We were in the area and looked at trip advisor 'what's near to me' and found this gem of a restaurant. The food was deliciously local and the staff welcoming. We had the rosemary steak, truffle pasta and the most delicious roast potatoes. Highly recommend 😊

Eggplant, truffle pasta, and steak were all delicious! Nice atmosphere. Our waiter was very kind and offered us a ride home because there were no cabs available due to an event in Florence that night!

Recommended this restaurant by the owner of the place we are staying and was not disappointed. Tucked away but well worth a visit. Really good food. Friendly staff who are willing to guide you through the wine list. Will be going back on this trip.

We had read about this restaurant here on tripadvisor, and would give it a try. I'm so happy that we did!!! It was the best food we had ever had - the pasta dishes we had were so good and the main courses, which were rabbit and chicken with cauliflower and zucchini and sirloin marinated in Rosemary - they were...

We visited this restaurant after a delayed flight by the most awful flight company in the world - easy jet. It was anything but easy. However this was all saved by the fact that our friends had booked us into La Gargotta for our first night in Italy. It may help here to state that I am vegetarian. After a... More
