We found this restaurant quite by accident but so glad we did. Food prepared with thought and beauty. The place itself has lovely place settings and decor but the food was the best we have had in Florence. Thyme can often be too overwhelming but in my y fish ravioli it was the best accent. Look for it.

We found this restaurant quite by accident--we were hoping for lunch but steering clear of touristy places. Walked by it on the way to Santa Croce Basilica and stopped. It was after 2 but she sat us and served us very graciously until 3:30 when we finally finished. Food was authentic and fabulously good--made to order. She also sells products that are used in the restaurant including a really fine olive oil. Highly recommend.

We found this lovely osteria quite by accident, and what a find. The place is charming, small and the owners delightful. Their food is crafted with such care and simply delicious! The menu changes with the local seasons, but cannot imagine any dish not being top quality. They also have a deli counter for wonderful lunches to go.

Also.... with my girl i was last week in this restaurant, full of expections! Place is small but this is good, nothing wrong... waitress was very kind! For starter we eate polenta with cheese and it was really good, i can recomende!! But maine course.... i ordered "Germano reale" (Wild duck with orange and Sautéed vegetables). Restaurant owner, please first insert in google "Sautéed vegetables". You gave me... i dont now how to describe "cake with pecorino chessse" - this is for you Sautéed vegetables. This was really really disgusting. Sorry but i really really don't like pecorino and if is pecorino normal for you-florentine people is this for other people not. One more time please, "Sautéed vegetables is not something millt with pecorino cheese" but if is in your restaurant than please write this in your menu! And this "wild duck"... you gave me 3 slices of cold brawn. This is not maine course, this is for me could starter. I leaved my entire meal and i told you why and you nevertheeles charge me all. Thank you for your florentine kindness.

PS:. Sorry for my english, is not perfect but its. still much better like "Germano reale".

This restaurant had been recommended in two separate food articles/blogs. So we sought it out and were happy we did. The atmosphere is small, warm and welcoming. All the tables were filled quickly, so make a reservation. The owner helped us choose a fantastic wine, that was extremely fairly priced. The food was fantastic. One course was better than the next. Do not skip dessert! You can eat well in Florence, but this place made us feel at home.
