“Don't bother!”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

First nite n Florence. Staying in a near by hotel spotted this restaurant. Menu looked good and there as the trusted trip advisor sign. Went back for dinner. Larger space with no dinners. We would normally not go in an empty place but trip advisor reviews have always come thru. We were seated by a rather sullen waiter, given menus and wine list. And waited and waited. Husband finally went to find him. There was another man with papers at a back table. Manager/owner???? He could see what as happen g but never intervened. Waiter came to take order. No offers water, bread, drinks or special. I asked about wine and he answered they had a chianti by the glass but that it wasn't the quality of their wines by the bottle. We looked at one another and both said let's leave! Can't remember the last time we walked out and have never written a negative review. We have user trip advisor around the world for hotels, restaurant and activity recommendations. In Florence for 5 nights and never saw a single person n this restaurant. We walked adorned the block and had dinner at a wonderful spot with pasta beyond expectations. Turns out this new spot #22!

You are true
Don't bother
Expecially if you never had dinner here.
I was the guy sitting at back table with papers. I was doing some bills for the people that were sitting in the other room of our empty empty restaurant. ( you saw only one of our rooms) Anyway i heard everything and the waiter didn't say anything wrong to you just maybe his english was not perfect and was a missubderstanding .(sorry for that)
Only an advice ; next time you relax and you'll have a great dinner i'm sure.
Have a nice day

“My favourite place in Florence”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Had another fantastic night in this tucked away but very popular Restaurant. First there is 2010 and again in 2013. Food is still great and some wonderful homely recipes, and a great selection of wines from all regions. Very reasonably priced for the quality you receive. The Owner Guiseppe is such a great host and we shared a beautiful bottle of Prosecco and he selected our wines perfectly.
Thanks again Guiseppi for another memorable night and hope to be back again. If not, all my friends will be coming!.

“Very good”
Reviewed 27 October 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed dinner here on a Saturday night. Very nice service and reasonable prices . I had the spicy spaghetti for 8 euros and my husband had the balsamic filet for 20 euros. It's down a tiny alley by the square going towards the river .

“Where's the beef!?”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

Thought we'd try the bistecca, but at one kilogram minimum it was too big for us. We ordered the beef fillet steaks instead which turned out to be very good.

A plate of Tuscan canapés was pretty average, no oohs and hash for that, but the side order of spinach was good.

Vin Santo for dessert rounded out the meal nicely.

All in all an okay place, but not top class. When I see waiters who don't know what orders go to which table, and make odd comments to each other, or don't know how to smile, I figure these are waiters who are probably working above their personal level of sophistication and may be better off working in a fast food place rather than a restaurant that has the potential of this place. Owners, your restaurant is only as good as your staff. If you want quality, hire quality.
