Very un touristy even though it's located within a high tourist area. When we visited a number of locals were shopping. Service was friendly and effiencent and the food and coffee excellent. It was a charming little establishment.

A cute and cosy family run osteria, with great selection of cheeses, cold cuts and lunch dishes for around €6-7. Wine selection is well presented, especially the tasting offers

My husband and I come to Italy every year and have some excellent meals, but none better than this. Rustic, authentic, unpretentious, friendly, great value, beautifully presented and delicious flavour combinations! Thoroughly, recommended.

The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a
stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence,
surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking
students provides the tranquil surroundings for the
