We wanted good pasta, and indeed had excellent pasta! We had the tortellini, parpadelle pasta with wild boar sauce, and tagliatelle with asparagus and prosciutto and it was absolutely the best pasta I’ve had in Italy! Would have loved to try the steak.

This was a really great dining experience that left us puzzled. Huge steaks were being cooked beautifully. Our lamb chop was excellent. Sides were delicious. We had egg plant which was perfect. Risotto perfect again. Everything, but no Florentines. Hmmm. Kind of like Disneyland then....More

Not happy at all with this experience. Was our first dinner in Florence and we were looking forward to the Florentine steak. Steak was not cooked well and had many chew portions, not as tender as expected (but others may enjoy). We also ordered pasta...More

This is not a local restaurant. Only the staff spoke Italian amongst themselves! But it is very good. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Lovely staff. Good suggestions. They make you feel at home.

A friend recommended this restaurant to try bistecca. It’s not cheap but it really wasn’t to be missed. The service is top notch and the food matched up to the hype. The steak was cooked perfectly and the accompanying potatoes and spinach balanced nicely. They...More

Wonderful ambiance and a great buzz about this spot. Waiting staff knowing the dishes always helps and they know their food here. The roast potatoes were gorgeous while the chicken was tender and melt in the mouth. The Cream of Mascarpone dessert was absolutely fantastic.
