We could easily have walked past, as the plastic chairs outside are functional rather than welcoming and typical around most of Florence. Fortunately our party of three happened to walk past as two locals were being served their wonderful smelling fresh pasta dish. It was our last day in Florence and as we were celebrating a birthday also, we thought it would be a nice to end our weekend trip with a decent lunch. So glad we did ! The food was fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and helpful, the service was excellent, and the restaurant itself was charming. Between us we ate pasta with marrow, a stew and beef with sauteed potatoes all beautifully seasoned and well cooked. We all agreed it was delicious.The fresh strawberry cream cake ended the meal perfectly. Highly recommend this charming restaurant.

This is a small, no frills place that can easily be missed. But make the effort to stop as it offers genuine Tuscan cuisne.
The meals are very generous and tasty at a low cost!
Recommendation: Spiedino di carne! With manzo(beef) maiale(pork) pollo(chicken) salsiccia(sausage) all on the one very large shishkebab! Make sure you are hungry!

We stumbled onto this little gem which was not far from our hotel the Mediterraneo, the place was quite full and the patrons weren’t tourist so that was a good sign.
Great family run restaurant with traditional local food. Service was excellent and the food was fresh and delicious. My wife and I shared a "Bistecca alla Fiorentina" which was 850g and we had sides of roast potatoes and salad, all reasonably priced.

We were so impressed we went back a second night with several members of our tour group who all loved it. Met the owner/chef Vito who runs the kitchen and his wife runs the front of house.

If you want a great meal away from the tourist traps then look this place up.

Beautitul food. We had our Bistecca here.....amazing! This was not a cheap restaurant, but not too spendy for the quality of food. Recommended to us by our hotel.
