Read about this place all over and had to visit. Was in Florence for three nights and we went here twice. Brought my 10 and 14 year old and our favorite waiter, Ivan, made them feel right at home. All the reviews are spot on. You must try the vegetable soup, which is one of my favorite things i have eaten ever. Ivan swore to me it was vegetarian when I insisted it must have pork to taste so good. Moved on to the spicy spaghetti, which would probably the best dish in any other restaurant but here remains in the shadow of some of the other wonderful options.The first night we split the pork chop. It is as good as advertised and make sure you get the roasted potatoes with it. The second night we split a huge steak. It is served very rare, like grilled tuna -- pink in the middle but the meat is just so so good.
But just as important is the atmosphere and the way they make you feel at home, even as Americans in this restaurant that is so clearly intended for the locals. They prepared a beautiful penne with meat sauce for my cranky ten year old daughter and made her crack a smile. Worth the price of admission alone.
Desserts are wonderful if you have room for them, which I kinda doubt if you want to try as many of the dishes as I did.
Be forewarned, you will be paying at least 12 euro by cab from the city center. But the prices are so reasonable that you shouldn't mind a bit, especially compared to what you will pay at the tourist places in the city center.
