    There are so many restaurants in Florence serving authentic Tuscan food in a convivial atmosphere and this is absolutely one of them. The interior feel was ‘local farmhouse’, tables sufficiently spaced for privacy, but nonetheless giving a feeling of eating with friends. The food was all homemade and tasty. Prices were reasonable. The service was excellent. We’ll worth a visit.

    Ambiente super acolhedor, atendimento muito cuidado e simpático, ótima seleção de vinhos e prados maravilhosos ! Pedíamos a beringela à Pomodoro para entrada e não dececionou ! Depois comemos raviolis de trufa e parpadelle de intestinos e eram ambos divinais ! Não deixem de provar o parpadelle, eles cozinham os intestinos de forma diferente e ficam super tenros e saborosos

    We had such an incredible experience here. The waiters were fabulous - they helped us navigate the menu and made sure that we had a wonderful (repeat wonderful) time and great food and wine from start to finish. The Florentine steak was hands down the best steak I have ever had. Everyone around us was also getting the steak - so very safe bet here. The waiter suggested the Florentine steak combined with filet wasn’t needed, but we did, and while very good, we should have taken his advice and gone with the standard Florentine. The tomato bread soup and truffle cheese were fabulous starters. Truffle filet was very good. The desserts were great - we got two orders of the warm chocolate cake (similar to lava cake). Highly recommend - one of our favorite restaurants in Florence. Would definitely return on our next trip. Thank you for such a special night!

    From the moment we walked through the door we were welcomed with smiles and seated right away. Everything we ordered was absolutely amazing!!! The house wine was the best, the ravioli was the best ravioli I’ve ever had and let’s not forget the steak! I will be dreaming of this meal until I get back to Florence. Off the beaten path, but a hidden gem!

    Wow! What a great final meal for our time in Florence. We came for lunch. Where to begin- amazing ambience and decor, very friendly and attentive staff. We had the toast with liver, pasta with rabbit sauce. For mains wild boar stew and steak with wine sauce. Everything was scrumptious and perfectly seasoned. For dessert we had cappuccino and millfeau. Just amazing!

    There is a reason this restaurant is hard to book even when it is a bit out of the way. But the effort will be worth it.

    We had T-bone Florentine steak for 4. Served with olive oil and lava salt, it was absolutely delicious. The side of potatoes was crisp and very good as well. The red wine recommendation was great! The service was excellent and the dessert we ordered- chocolate cake and cheesecake were yummy. The ambiance of the restaurant was cosy, I love the place.

    Such an enjoyable and satisfying experience. Lived up to expectation and wonderful evening. Bistecca florentine was magnificent. Starter, Wine, sides, dessert all first class. Staff are 10/10. Hospitable, smiling, excellent advice and make you feel very welcome. A real gem of an establishment. The team should be proud of this excellent restaurant.

    Dined here with hubby for dinner.. we shared the melanzane as a starter, & the duck ravioli as our first plate; we each had the steak with mushrooms as our main… loved our choices (but the melanzane serving was a bit small - enough for 1 person) but the rest were just right. Staff were very kind & helpful.
