Not your average tourist trap restraunt. Excellent selection of wine, quality of food and service is very high. Incredible antipasto platter to kick things off, excellent wild boar pasta rich and indulgent. Steak was juicy, tender and served with a sizzle platter to cook the rarer elements nearer to the bone.
Nice atmosphere.
We were anxious this was just another over priced tourist trap, it is not! One of the best meals we have had in Florence (3rd time visiting). Even better with a bottle of Chianti Classici Firenze.

I am glad that I found this restaurant. I come to Florence several times a year and decided to try someplace new. I had the bruschetta, gnocchi alla sorrentina, and biscotti with vin santo. I enjoyed it all. I highly recommend it. Most people were eating the Florentine steak but I am not a meat eater.

The food is disappointing! The spaghetti is very normal and not so tasty as expected(and its portion is too small,maybe enough for a child); and the chicken salad has only a little chicken. Besides the steak is tasteless.
But the waiters are very friendly and the atmosphere in the restaurant is also nice and romantic.

First of all, I think the best thing about this store is the staff. The staff was very friendly. And the staff kept paying attention to the taste of the food and the service. This store is really delicious with balsamic sauce. Please eat with bread. The main steak was also delicious. Personally, I wanted to try the side menu, but since I had two women, 1kg of T-bone steak was so big that I couldn't eat other menus. Next time I want to try another menu. Dessert after steak, it was delicious, too. I drank well until the last lemon cello. Pasquale, thank you for making a good evening!

Excellent and friendly service from the staff and very accommodating. Food was excellent as well. We had a little bit of everything from cheese with honey as appetizers to pasta with lobster, lasagna and steak for dinner. We will definitely come back

This restaurant is worth going with elegant atomosphere and warm service. The food was great and it provided a lot! All the staff there were very friendly, especially Mr. Han who speaks italien and chineses. Btw the boss used very well the Chinese word “beautiful ” hahahha. This restaurant contributed a lot to our brilliant memories in Florence.

I loved this restaurant. The waiters were very friendly and advised me on a good selection of wines - I recommend the Montepulciano d'Abruzzo.
I had the Florentine steak for 2. It was tasty but for me the tiramisu was my favourite. All in all a really nice dining experience in Florence. I will definitely be coming back.

Great welcoming atmosphere. Excellent food. Faor pricing for being so close to the center of the city. We went back 2 nights in a row after having a great experience the first night.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is romantic and the food was delicious. We dined here twice this week. The other night I loved my gnocchi. It was very well prepared. To night my husband had the pappardelle in a chingalle ragu and it was wonderful. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

The restaurant has a nice ambience and atmosphere and the staff quite attentive; however, we did not enjoy our food despite the good reviews on The Fork and other sites. My seafood pasta did not taste particularly fresh and had minuscule clams, mussels, and shrimp. My wife had a tasteless minestrone soup, and a Caesar salad with chicken that was certainly precooked (since it was chewy), and the dressing was not homemade. Overall, we were disappointed as this was our last night in Florence and we had been to some great restaurants up to this point.

Nice restaurant in a central location of Florence, super convenient to the Hotel Brunelleschi. As is typical of many Florentine restaurants, seating is limited, and enjoying a private conversation is difficult. My risotto with zucchini and artichoke was bland, spouse’s gnocchi with pesto was excellent. My Chianina fillet arrived the rare side of medium, and was perfection. Much better value for the money than the OTHER nearby Trattoria known for steak. I’d try it again, but Florence is such a big city...

Beautiful restaurant and service is impeccable. I check around and noticed that all the guests were getting the same excellent service and everyone was having a wonderful time with their servers. Food was pretty amazing to. I guess our food was taking a while (not that we noticed since we were having a great time) and server apologized and gave me a glass of wine on the house (not expected, but very appreciated). Put this restaurant on your to do list. You will not be disappointed.
