“Not so good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013

I had looking forward to eating here, based on the reviews of the restaurant on here, and I have to say, I'm pretty nonplussed as to why this restaurant is so well reviewed, this is an average restaurant. I went there with a group of friends for Motogp 2013. Our entrees were very bland, my pasta was way overlooked, which is unfortunate for an Italian restaurant. The best thing was the wine. It's good food, but not great and I don't feel the need to go back there again, in Scarperia there are much better places.

Three months after the day of Mugello Gp? I think you don't remember where you have eaten and sincerely I don't think the reality is this. It's impossible that our dishes were so bad...but we are so sad for this and if you are here again I hope you will say hallo! Thanks and take care and remeber we are a very good Florentine restaurant.

“Amazing! Even better than expected!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2013 via mobile

We went because of all the great reviews on Tripadvisor, so our expectations were already high. The food was still well above our expectations. We were there for lunch, but the place would be perfect for a romantic dinner. We had papardelle with wild boar and gnocchi with rabbit. Delicious! Impressive! One of the best meals we had ever.
The only thing I would regret is that we had to drive more and did not have any wine. The food was asking for it!
Thank you very much!

“Unexpectedly Excellent Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2013

Family run restaurant. Warm and cozy with friendly staff. We had lunch there after visiting some of the cutlery factory stores. Food very rich and unusual pairings. A nice contrast to the normal menu options. An elegant setting with very fresh ingredients. We enjoyed it very much.

“Excellent food in a beautiful village!”

Friendly, family run restaurant. Food is fantastic, traditional Tuscan cooking but with a twist. The Florentine steak is excellent! Certainly worth a trip to Scarperia.
