Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

On our last day in Florence we would have wanted to experience this place. We went there and to our surprise a sign outside is posted not accommodating any guests further. We could see that there are plenty of tables and chairs and some "locals"...simply disregarding the sign were ultimately allowed to get inside. While tourists, like us, who can't speak the language were just shrug off and up front denied entry. We tried one of their specialty pasta 'to go' but I could I have tasted the same in another place or even in the nearby mercato. Probably this place is too hype because many were recommending. But for experience though with quality customer service, I'd rather go elsewhere.More

Unfortunately this Trattoria developed over the years away from an excellent Slow Food location to a tourist Trattoria (mainly Chinese guests). The food is mediocre while the service is still excellent. For me this is no longer a location to be.

Had the steak fiorentina and roast chicken which were both unreal and some great pasta starters. Extremely good value for money and a great house Red

A real gem! Family owned and run trattoria celebrating 70 years this year. Feels really authentic - decor, service, food. I had a version of pasta pomodoro and it was excellent! My daughter had ravioli with wild boar Ragu and she loved it too. Can...watch it all being cooked in front of you. Really good value too, just make sure to get there just before noon when it opens as it’s v popular. Or be prepared to queue outside.More

Incredible meal! We had pappardelle with ragu (wow!) and shared bisteca alla fiorentina. The meal was delicious and service was great. Most of the other diners at the time were locals. A great gem in Florentine!

Unfortunately this establishment is very overrated. It is fast service, which is fine. However the food is very average. We ordered our main courses with chips, but they never arrived. We asked three times for the chips but ended up eating just meat for our...main course, which was disappointing and not even an apology. Just another overpriced average trattoria in Florence!More

Had reservations they were turning many away. But not the local regulars who just walked in said hello and went to this back room area. We ordered primi and seconding. Only brought out one primi along with the secondi. What about the other primi??!! Waiter...kept saying ‘sorry sorry’. I doubt he was sorry just wanted to rush us out so he could give our table to locals. Good meal we’ve not had this experience before. Stay away if you don’t mine this type of treatment. Food was really good though.More

What a great local spot. Hidden gem shared with us on a food and wine tour. I am not even a seafood fan but the dishes were all great. Staff was friendly, but go early or make reservations if you want to get in.

We stopped by here for lunch exactly at opening time in the hopes we could get a table without a reservation having found this restaurant on google maps earlier in the day. We were very lucky and given a table for an hour before the...bookings came in - absolutely fine for us as we had lots of stuff booked and didn’t intend to stop for long. We were seated facing the kitchen, a 1/2 litre of their house white wine is only €6 which we felt was incredibly reasonable as we got a few glasses each out of this. We shared the tomato pasta to start, so fresh and delicious. Then I had the Tuscan pot roast for main - hearty and so flavourful. My partner had a beef fillet - it was absolutely massive and cooked rare/medium rare to perfection. We also shared some roasted tomatoes which were lovely. You should absolutely make a reservation here to guarantee a table, this family-run restaurant is a must visit whilst you’re in Florence!More

it was very nasty the way in which we were told that there was not a place. I felt no humanity in the owner. He later came out to ask for forgiveness for being rude but it just did not work for me anymore.

The Florentine steak was absolutely delicious just under 1kg was enough for two people combined with two other dishes. I highly recommend going if you’re in Florence.

The restaurant was really homely, and the price was very reasonable. It was packed with tourists and locals during lunch time. Not everyone spoke English there but ordering was quite straightforward. They changed their menu every day and there was English on the menu. I...ordered a steak. They didn't ask me the nonsense "medium or well done" question. It came back perfectly medium rare. The food was not bad, well worth the price.More
