This place is not fancy and does not look like much from the outside but is nice on the inside. More importantly, it has very good food and excellent wines at a very reasonable price. All 5 people in our party were pleased with the food quality, the friendly service and the wine. I had the pasta with a wild boar sauce (yum) and (sorry) too much to drink to remember what everyone else had. That's how good the wine was. And I just looked at the bill - very reasonable. I had dinners on this trip to Italy that cost 40% more but were not as enjoyable.

We had lunch at La Cantinetta today. I had a caprese salad with some focaccia (salty, indont understand this tuscan tradition of unsalted bread...). The salad was very tasty, good products! The focaccia same thing, all very good. We didnt have ham or salami which was a shame because i think we would have enjoyed it! Next time definitely.
Service really nice too an prices reasonable.
The only negative point is the tiny terrasse which was uncomfortable.

Came here expecting an unforgettable experience. Not at all what I was expecting. It was empty at 7:30 on a Friday- which was concerning. Everything we ordered, barring the slightly better than average steak florentine, was highly undersalted/underseasoned/noticeably missing flavor. The bread was poor- tasted like sawdust. Clearly didn't contain a grain of salt. Even drowned in olive oil with mounds of salt and pepper in it, it was bland. If we were in the US, I'd be sad. But we're in Italy, and crap bread is fairly unforgivable here.

Great lunch with family. It has from cheap menus to more expensive dishes (like the Bisteca Fiorentina). The service was good and the overall price was ok, for a place in the center of the city.

We walked past this place a couple times and stopped here for the awesome wine before we decided to stop for dinner. The dinner and the wine list were exceptional. We had the steak with Gorgonzola cheese and it made our last night in Florence. Well worth the stop. Service was excellent. Highly recommended.
