    Passed the little restaurant by accident and truly enjoyed a fabulous lunch, the home grown vegetables are a very positive differentiator. Very friendly staff and great Tuscan food.

    The food is delicious (especially the broccoli flan!), with many vegetarian options! The dishes are beautiful to see, almost a shame to eat them ;). Service was also kind and they think along with you which wines you should pair with your food. Will definitely come back when in florence again!

    The food is excellent, especially the Seitan. Fresh and tasty combinations such as salmon with peach. Really sad to be only here for one evening and not being able to try everything from the menu. The service is very friendly and very good english speaking.

    Beautiful, is the best word to describe the food here. By far the best vegetables I've had in a very long time. You can taste all the complex flavors of the actual ingredients instead of just getting hit by salt and butter like you do in other places. Service is great also. Definitely recommend for those who appreciate the ingredients speaking for themselves. Amazing food !

    Great food and it’s prepared right in front of you! The menu is all fresh and tasty. Plus, if you have an allergy the menu lists out which foods you can have.

    I came to Italy with extreme dietary restrictions due to an autoimmune disorder. This restaurant was simply lovely, from the service, to the quality of ingredients and care in preparation. The waiter was very gracious in accommodating all of my particular request for certain additions and omissions. My partner, who has no dietary restrictions, had a wonderful meal, including the salumi platter and lasagna. We even split the chocolate cake! TBellissimo!

    One of the waiter was rude, the older one. I asked for some olive oil for the bread. He brought it over, not willingly. He only poured a little bit on a small plate. i ask him to pour a bit more. He didn't and took the olive oil bottle away. He came back with the menu and told me that I could order toasted bread with oil, if I wanted that. Very bad and arrogant behavior. Disappointing. It didn't make me feel welcome at the restaurant. They other waiter, the younger one was very nice. However, it didn't compensate the bad behavior from his college.
