Small restaurant frequented by locals. Went there with a five long time Florentines and I was the only foreigner in the place. It is out of the way from tourist spots, although still in the middle of town. For most visitors it will have to include a taxi ride. It is a family run place, with personal touch, with customers that have going for ages.
The food is indeed local for locals, not local for tourists, as other places advertise. Yes, they have the bisteca fiorentina and regular pasta, but……….. In our table we had such specialties such as beef cheeks in wine sauce, deep fried brains, pasta with tripe, fried rabbit and the traditional pasta with ragout and some salads. If you are ready to try something different, this is it. I had pasta with beef ragout as first course and slightly breaded fried rabbit as a second course (frito fiorentino). It took me a while to realize it was rabbit, I thought it was deep fried chicken. It came with fried artichokes. It was very delicate. For desert I wife had a breaded calf chop and it was one of the best I have ever tried. We had an extraordinary apple strudel.
Recommended for those that are tired of pizza and pasta
