What a beautiful charming location, everything was just perfect: the atmosphere, the staff, the venue, the garden. The food is fresh and high quality, you can tell it's almost at km 0! A try is the T-borne fiorentina! We will be back before leaving Tuscany...More

Even midweek, during August, several times people were turned away from this unassuming gem. Steaks and meat being the specialty in a spacious garden setting. Suitable for couples, families and groups it had a bubbly atmosphere As the evening got busier the otherwise attentive service...More

Restaurant well known in the area for good food at reasonable price; as usual in Tuscany, the meat is the usual choice (recomended) but also the desserts are very good. Better to book beforehand in the summer Weekends.

Description
The restaurant the Tuscan and 'a land of balance, "happy medium", where strong traditions, climate and culture tell a gastronomic history ancient, simple and tasty but deliberately simple. On this principle was born the restaurant "the cricket moro", from recipes to melia grandmother, and aunt of nena brown , written on small exercise books faded and sometimes oil-stained days of threshing. Today our passion for cooking and 'became profession. Pici with dumplings and noodles made by hand, with show-cooking dishes such as "joke of Chianina filippo ", but most of the cricket moro "The ciccio bono". Our attention in the selection of meat, matured for 33 days in vertical on and off and in cooking, makes us one of the best places to eat in Florence in Tuscany. The rite of its cut, Ext "filleting" with love and precision, the hot plate at 140 degrees, the salt of Volterra, oil "dievole" and black pepper make the magic of this moment. Our smile, friendly and welcoming atmosphere in a nostrale of modern times with old values, you expect in our house. Soon filippo and his staff
