    Hard to decide which was better, the staff or the food. We had a wonderful time and the staff was so accommodating to our children. Will definitely make a point to go back.

    The hostess was so welcoming and “down to earth.” It felt like a family atmosphere from the moment we walked in. The food was so delicious- it tasted like a home cooked meal Would definitely come back here again!!

    Arrived on time but our table was not ready, They welcomed us with smiles & many bueno Serra’s. Immediately escorted us to the bar and offered us a nice glass of Prosecco for free while we waited a short period. Extremely attentive and patient wait staff. Explained many specials very slowly so we could understand. Wife is a Vegetarian and they made her some delicious off menu items and went out of their way to make her happy. They brought us many items to try for free during our dinner. Overall just a wonderful experience with delicious home cooked Tuscan fare.

    We enjoyed a lovely Tuscan meal. The staff were friendly and service was excellent. We enjoyed Caprese salad, Panzanella, Truffle Spaghetti, Florentine Steak and dessert. Their recommended wines were great with the meal.

    One of the places in Florence that holds a dear place in my heart. I had my first truffle pasta here back in 2017 and had it again in 2022. Brilliant quality food and service. The fillet mignon was possibly the best steak I have had in my life too. Our waiter (I wish I had asked his name) was lovely and patient with our questions. He was friendly and made us feel welcomed. BEST RESTAURANT IN FLORENCE!

    Our first visit to this restaurant and it was absolutely wonderful! Both the food and service was top notch and our server Gabriel was great. The management went out of their way to show their appreciation for our patronage. If you are in Florence, put this restaurant on your list, it will not disappoint!
