We had the ravioli with cinnamon, pear and pecorino, and the wild boar stew with polenta. Both were amazing, as was the chocolate and hazelnut cake for dessert. My sister had the risotto with saffron, zucchini and king prawns which was nice but not exceptional. Service was very good they were just so busy you had to wait a liitle while.

Though small and away from the hubbub of the city center, this restaurant is a must if you visit Florence. Also a must: the traditional Fiorentina, which is 1kg of meat that is served for two (the weight of the bone is included, so in the end there are maybe 600-700g of meat left to eat) at a price of 40 euros.
The prices on the rest of the menu were very acceptable, just like the drinks (a beer is only 2 euros).
The only thing sad about this restaurant is that, like so often in Italy, you pay 2 euros each for the "coperto".

Great meal in this small family-run restaurant in Florence. My risotto with asparagus and king prawns was the best dish I had during my 25 day trip to Italy. Whoever is cooking in that kitchen knows what they are doing. The friendly owner waited on us, and was happy to explain the menu and answer questions. Recommended a great white wine that was very inexpensive. Entire meal was moderate price.

Was recommended to us as having very good food as enjoyed by the locals.

Really nice atmosphere and very busy. Crazy busy at times so book.

We enjoyed 2 meals here, 1 dinner and a Saturday lunch which had a very good value set menu at 12.50 euro for 2 dishes, wine, water etc.

Run by a family and it shows in the feel of the place.

Gosh they work hard.

This the first Restaurant my wife and I ate in Florence. We went for lunch and the had a lunch special for 12.50 euro. This included appetizers, main course and a glass of wine. They had about 5 or 6 choices. Great deal for Florence and the food was very good.
The waitress that greeted us was very friendly and her English was good. She explained every choice in depth. Made it very easy for us to choose.
If you go in the evening make a reservation it is very busy.
We went back for dinner we liked it so much.
If you like steaks they are beautiful hand cut steaks that are huge. You can share one. They are very good.
It was advised to us by Daniel at the Arizona hotel and he was right about it being a great place.
