My friend and I are not blown away from this restaurant. We got seated fairly quick which was nice. The outside tables are not in the sun so it gets chilly in the shade. My friend got served a dirty wine glass and i got served a dirty drinking glass too. The pasta dish was great and very tasty. They... More

If you come here and get anything but the gnocchi gratinati al formaggi you are making a mistake! Potentially the best dish I had in all of Florence. If you travel with a big group be prepared to wait to be seated.

If you want to taste amazing Italian food - just go here. Get away from the touristy places and enjoy the amazing flavours. How they make such simple dishes taste so good is beyond me. We loved the garlic and chilli oil spaghetti, the truffle oil gnocchi, the lasagne and the beef stew. We've been twice so far and will... More

Three of us had dinner out on the terrace. When we called they told us there were no tables until 10 but we walked past the place asked and were told we could be seated at 845. Perfect. Great food, huge portions and great service. There is a wide range of local food and some specials. I had a very... More

This is a great little osteria in a quirky piazza in the oltrano area. The food is delish, the service is good and friendly. Good value, nothing fancy, just good, fresh, traditional Tuscan food.

We went there by mistake and then we went back since we had some of the best pastas ever. The service is not great but I would go back for that pasta (we tried them all)

We came with a huge party- 18? people. I tried a lot of different dishes and liked everything I tried. These are a few of the things I remember... - spaghetti vongole - rabbit - mussels pasta - mussels appetizer - gnocchi with truffle oil (good but least special of everything) Many of the pasta and main courses were available...

We had been referred to this Osteria and it did not disappoint. Young, and lively, and really great food. We were told to definitely get the gnocchi with cheeses ... OH MY ... we shared the giant portion to start - and then we each had steak. It was a great meal but even better, a great evening.

Ate here THREE times while in Florence and I still don't regret "using" up that many meals. Our first visit was for a quick lunch that was close to our hotel. Once we saw the food arriving at other tables, we knew we would be back for dinner. The 3 cheese truffle gnocchi was amazing!! this is what brought us... More
