“Overpriced”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

Generally poor service and they got both of our orders wrong! I had a burger (perhaps a mistake I Italy but I was craving some variety!) it wasn't that great and supremely overpriced at €20! The restaurant itself is in a nice but touristy area. Having said that, my husband did enjoy his calzone and the complimentary appetisers were tasty!

“Good Pizza in a nice tourist spot”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

Thats a surprise. Its a very good pizza in a very touristic place. The pizzas with buffalo mussarela are great, the genovese one is wonderful. Great hint from our hotel.

“Badly pretended classiness”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

We went there hoping for a good Italian coffee. Even though there were three waiters and barely any guests, we waited 15 minutes, then another 10 for the receipt. Coffee was average an overpriced. I was not allowed to use credit card and waitress didn't speak English well enough to explain why.
In short, a terrible experience.

“Great location, average food, high prices”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

It's in Piazza della Signoria, one of the loveliest city squares in the world. You can see famous buildings and statues, even a copy of Michelangelo's David. To be honest, it's not in the best part of the Piazza, and from the restaurant you only really get a view of Cosimo's horse's tail and Neptune's back. But, of course, it's still going to be expensive. But my cod was fine, decent glass of wine, proper espresso. Service was a bit slow but friendly. No doubt there were far better and better value places around the corner, but I had only just arrived in Florence and didn't have access to wifi to check tripadvisor first.
