5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Mouth watering steaks and fish.We ate there twice during our 4 day visit and both times chose the table d'hote option which was 2 courses plus wine and water. good value for money and food superb. Service was friendly. On our 2nd visit the owner recognised us and we were given a free drink each. People were queing to come in by 8.30. Convenient location opposite train station and good atmosphere.

“Excellent Steak ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

Dining alone and searched high and low on trip advisor for a great steak for one person. Hard to find as most restaurants only serve larger steaks for two. Came here based on trip advisor recommendations and was not disappointed.

Has the 25 Euro meal which included mixed crostini starter, steak and potatoes, water and wine. Excellent value.

The crostini was excellent with some of the most flavorful tomatoes I have had in all of Italy. The steak was the best steak I have ever eaten, and I have had great steaks. The potatoes were average. House wine was good. Overall a great meal at a great price!

“Good steak!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

Good steak! Good value for money. Staffs are friendly for Italian standards. The only thing I didn't like about the place is that we were not allowed to stay a bit longer because there was a group waiting to be seated. The place is conveniently located just across the train station. S if you have an hour to spare before your departure, it would be good to come and eat at this place before you say good bye to Florence. Or if you want to have a good first impression of Florence, this would be a good place to start too.

We visited here on our last night in Florence (5/22) and were impressed. I was not sure of the place because of the location but was pleasantly surprised. We ordered the fish and steak and both were great. The pasta in boar sauce was magnificent. Service was attentive and friendly. Great food for great price. When we left there was a line to get in.

“Place to have a good meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

Location : hard to find better for the traveller,just at the doorstep of railway station.
Place is unassuming,modest in decor,but always full of customers.In the evening it is not uncommon to see people bouncing off the door.
Service is apt mixture of experienced waiters and young trainees,organization - exemplary.Clean,well positioned tables (2 to 6 and more person),no fireworks,just what is required to serve a honest meal.
Lunch time the place is overflowing with people from adjacent offices,evening - see above.
Recommended : trippa alla Fiorentina ( for adventourous) and bistecca alla Fiorentina (but for two,single is not as good as double).
Wine list is modest,but adequate.
Bon appetit!
