“Great service and really good food”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

We enjoyed this dinner - not quite as good as Cesarino's and a few more tourists at this one - but the service was great and the food was delicious. Atmosphere is definitely small family neighborhood restaurant, which we liked.

“Bistec Fiortine!”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

We showed up without reservations because of the ta comments and it was very close to our hotel. They happened to find us a seat. The steak was priced at 40?, we thought wow pricey but my husband has to have it. I ordered sea bass. After he ordered the steak, our server said it it for two people, so I went with the steak. She suggested a Tuscan platter starter to share 9?, I had chianti 1/2 liter 4? and hubby had a huge Italian beer.

The Tuscan platter was a huge amount of salumi, sausages and what we think was liver pate. We were warned by our server not to eat too much bread. All the plate was good but the liver and one piece of sausage. Just not our taste, but the rest was so tasty.

The steak took a while but what did we have to do? When it arrived it was HUGE., 2lbs. with baked rosemary potatoes. The only problem was because it was so thick it was still blue in the middle and we ordered it medium. I ate the outside more done parts and my hub ate the rarer parts. Flavor was magnificent. They all gave us a complementary tiramisu, which is the best I have ever had.

We would definitely go back. Service was excellent.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Please make reservations or you will be disappointed. A small family run restaurant. We went for dinner which was well priced with an excellent bottle of Nebbiolo . Lovely salad of pear and walnuts and honey-great presentation . The service was a bit rushed but the overall experience was excellent. The lights are bright for evening service but typical of a lot of Italian restaurants.

“Fresh food and friendly service”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Welcomed with open arms (although reservation needed). Food was fresh and delicious. Had to try the tiramisu made from Grandma's recipe - and it was great. A nice little family run restaurant.

“Excellent food and friendly service.”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Great restaurant with excellent food. Waitress recommended excellent wine to go with our meal.
Had complimentary dessert between us which was a nice touch. All the dishes were very tasty.
Was quite pricey but was worth it.
