“awesome”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Stumbled on to the place while I was waiting for my laundry to finish nearby, and returned for dinner. Excellent, truly a local establishment. Menu du jour with amazing homemade pastas prime plata. Excellent veal, rustic fresh bread and decent house vino. Such a good experience we did not even consider another place for dinner our second night in Florence. Opted again for the fresh pastas du jour - gnocchi with garganzola and pici spaghetti with olive oil and panchetta and the Florentina 2 kilo RARE T-bone for two and perfectly roasted asparagus. Absolutely delicious. Seek it out, you will not be disappointed.

“Nice Find”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

We stumbled across this restaurant while walking around and were not disappointed. The restaurant has family atmosphere with many locals enjoying dinner. Our waiter was friendly, greeting us with a big smile. The meal was great and the serving sizes were perfect and very reasonably priced. We felt like one of the local Florence residents eating here enjoying the food and wine. Very relaxing and warm friendly staff.

We would definitely eat here again.

“Unmissable”
Reviewed 28 June 2013

This was best place in Florence, to eat as the locals do, best food and value for money, This is the close to center, (10 mins walking from railway station) but furthest from tourist traps you could find.
As you enter you see the whole piece of beef they use and their steaks are famous, you can ask them to explain and they will take the time to do so. I would recommend for the kids the 'cotoletta alla milanese" with fries since this is typically chosen by kids and mine loved it. The house wine is PHENOMENAL chianti, no need to spend any more on others! prices are WAY below tourist spots rates and quality is excellent.

“Finally understood the "fiorentina" cut”
Reviewed 26 June 2013 via mobile

Great tagliata alla rucola. The owner took some time to show me on a real half Chianina cow, the way fiorentina, controfiletto and filetto get cut out. Great quality house Sangiovese wine, pay for what you drink from the 1.5 litres bottle.
