“Good food!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

We went for dinner two times in our last stay in Firenze, and we found the pasta and the entrees very good. The service is also good, with a warm welcome.

The only "but", that the tables are too close; however, it can be a nice chance to meet new people.

“Touristy”
Reviewed 25 April 2014 via mobile

Very crowded, hectic, close quarters. Part of a "chain" with restaurants in San Diego and Washington, DC. It's claim to fame is the blueberry steak and pasta sampler. The blueberry steak was good. Nice piece of meat, well cooked, with a sauce unlike anything I've ever had before. The pasta sampler was unremarkable. Certainly better pasta can be had in Florence. It was also fairly expensive.

“Better than average local dinner”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

This is a friendly local restaurant with a typical Tuscan menu. The tables are packed in quite close, to the point of being uncomfortable, and this likely colored our view of what really was a pretty good meal. The menu is a bit limited, compared to other local places, but the pasta was very nice, although simply prepared.

“Amazing!!”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

My friends and I went and each of us got the pasta sampler. It was completely worth it! Although we left without feeling completely full, we got to try five different great tasting pastas. Each was unique and we all loved them. We had artichoke, Gorgonzola, penne a la vodka, risotto, and bolognese. We also split the house wine, which was great. The atmosphere was lively and memorable. The owner lady was amiable and very nice. I recommend! I would strongly suggest that you get a reservation. We went on a Sunday and still had to wait an hour for a table of seven. Won't forget our experience there!
