We loved this place so much that we went back three times. While the menus are all in Italian, the waiters were great about translating for us.The specials on the board were wonderful. The fish dish we had was just superb. The chocolate orange cheese...More

My wife had potato stuffed tortelli, a little greasy for her taste but that could be the reason. Wine and service was good, forgot her 2nd glass of wine but probably a shift change thing. I ordered Spaghetti allo Scorpio and it was very good....More

我們覺得服務很差,他們沒有主動提麵包,最後確還是收1.5的餐桌費,上菜的速度也很慢,一度想離開不吃了,我們觀察其他亞洲旅客也遇到類似情況,有種族歧視的感覺。 We were treated with racism. The menu is mentioned that "pane e coperto €1.5" but they charged this fee without didn't any bread. Also, the service attitude was bad. Had a bad experience here and don't want to come back again.

The food is pretty nice but not amazingly good. It is worth a try if you are around the area. But it is very popular and gets quite busy so it is a good idea to book in advance. We did see people queueing.

Piazzale Michelangelo
Just outside the ancient walls of Florence, Viale
Michelangiolo starts. It is a winding road rimmed by
wonderful poplars and holm oaks. The long ascent opens
up to the most beautiful and famous panoramic
viewpoint of Florence: Piazzale Michelangelo, where an
elevated terrace offers visitors an incomparable and
breathtaking view of the entire city from above.
During good weather, Piazzale Michelangelo provides
