We met an Italian couple who recommended this but I think there are better places out there. Food ok, but not exceptional

It is almost impossible to find a table without a prior booking , do this and you will never be disappointed . After eating there the first night we made the decision to keep coming back for the rest of our... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and they were not wrong. We went on a Saturday at lunch so had to wait for table but it was worth it. Really great pasta, quick service and very nice waiters. Raviolis and garganelli were soo tasty!

Friendly service, good meals here in 2007 (twice) & 2017, pretty good house red wine. The tagliatelle/papardelle with boar ragu is terrific.

A very good place to eat Tuscan food in the Oltarno section of Florence. Good quality food, put out by the family that owns it. Lots of locals eat here, as well as tourists. Everything I've eaten here has been wonderful, and the prices are great as well. Rarely any items more than 10 euros. You can get a quartino... More

Busy lunch hour. Had to wait a short time for a table. Service very amiable, laid back and helpful. 2 hungry couples: Antipasti della casa: Good products. Ensalata caprese: just ok Lesso rifatto con cipolla (sort of a dry, very tender beef stew with onions): superb Bistecca alla fiorentina (750gr): good meat. €40/kilo Side order of roasted potatoes (very good)...

We were nothing less than impressed by this little restaurant. We started our meal with a charcuterie plate and fresh bread, and of... More

I was told in no uncertain terms I could not leave Florence without having the bistecca fiorentina, and several locals recommended Casalinga, near Piazza Santo Spirito. It was a great choice. The food was brilliant. The friendly staff indulged my crippled Italian (I think the grumpy owner was already gone). And I managed to do a pretty good job on... More
