“Good food, Excellent service”
Reviewed 2 September 2012

My partner and I came here after reading the great reviews, the wholemeal pasta and lamb ragout is delicious, my other dish was pork which was also good. The restaurant was very quiet as we arrived late for dinner.This wasn't the best food we had in Florence but the service here is excellent, our waiter Kush kept is entertained and smiling and was kind enough to call a taxi to take us back to our hotel.

Thank you so much for your comments. Sorry our food was not the best you had - we can only do our best and no more! Extra glad that Kush treated you well. Do come back.

“Unforgettable”
Reviewed 31 August 2012 via mobile

Long story short: eat here and you won't regret it.
This is what we had:
Wholemeal Pasta with lamb ragout
Veal Ossobucco with saffron risotto
A glass of:
Nobello/i Montelpulciano rosso (2009)
Chianti Classico rosso (forgot the year)
Semifreddo fragola with 15 year old balsamic vinigiarette and fresh berries.
The. Food. Is. Amazing. Veal was so tender and risotto was well done. The waiter was super friendly in explaining menu items and recommending wines (which were excellent).
And the strawberry semifreddo, ah the semifreddo. One of the best deserts I have ever had.

Cost 57 euro all up so it's not super cheap but for the quality of the grub that you get it's worth every penny.

“Excellent place for a good meal”
Reviewed 28 August 2012

Location: piazza San Marco, but inside. Nice decoration good ambience. No doubt everybody was happy. Some locals, business people, families.
Food: very good. Bisteca was the best. As good or better than a steak at any fancy NY steakhouse. Risotto was very tasty and cooked to perfection. We also try " parmigiana chicken" just to see how different, and yes , it was really something!
All the family (2adukts, 12 and 10 year old) enjoy their dinner
Service: very polite young gentlemen . They have been working there since very young age so they knew what they were doing .
Value: no different from many other restaurants in Italy. You can get high end and get tasting menu for 40 or so, or Bisteca for a min price of 60 euros plus wines from 15 to 200, or, like a couple sitting close to us: water, vegetarian single dishes and I'm telling you: they look happy. Plates are generous so u can share.
Defineteky worth the try

“Very good restaurant”
Reviewed 24 August 2012 via mobile

Staff friendly and knew their wines - picked us a fab bottle of crognolo. Food not as good as Pepo's or Brown Sugar but the staff and ambiance made up for that in abundance. Can recommend.

Our waiters are all qualified/qualifying sommerlier! They should know their stuff. We invest a lot in our staff, and we think it pays in abundance. Note taken about the food - would have loved to know what you felt the difference was. Glad that you enjoyed the experience and look forward to seeing you again some day.
