“Great value for money buffet lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

We were walking back down from Piazzale Michalangelo when we chanced upon this restaurant on the corner...it is actually much bigger inside with a rooftop eating area(be sure to reserve a seat by the railings if you want a better view)
Good value for money - $10 Euro lunch for adult, $7 for a child.

“Poor service and expensive food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

This was our last night in Florence and we decided to eat here after taking in the views at Piazzale Michael Angelo. Right from arrival the Chinese lady serving us made us feel she was doing us a huge favour by serving us. She was rude and plonked the food on the table with not a word. I am very disappointed after spending 90 euros for 2 persons - my advice would be don't eat here. Poor service and poor expensive food.

“Watch how much they charge you... very annoying...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013

Just for being turists they think they can charge you double than stated in the menu.
Would not recommend!

By just 10?(during week and saturday) or 15?(at sundays) you can eat whatever you want with a big variety of food, water and coffee(witch can be a cappuccino) included in a big terrace where you can relax, and have a good time!

“The best aperitivo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2013 via mobile

Young and trendy crowd, quieter in the garden. Excellent aperitivo with lots of choice that changes as dishes are used up. Arrive early, about 7pm, to get a table, especially at the weekend, because it is very popular. Good for a walk up to Piazzale Michael Angelo for sunset afterwards.
