Excellent spot for a casual and cozy dinner. We enjoyed the bistecca and roasted potatoes. The waiter was knowledgeable and fun. If you're looking for good food in a casual spot, try this place!

As an Italian I am used to good Italian food, and this place was a disappointment. The service was bad, they didn't know anything about the dishes they were serving. We ordered simple steaks, thinking it would be easy, but it took more than 45 minute in an empty restaurant. The steak was well done and dry even though we... More

Dashed into this restaurant during a downpour. What a find! Good choices on menu and suggested wine gorgeous! Courteous staff and very helpful as none of us speak Italian very well. Very reasonably priced. We will definitely return and would recommend this place to all lovers of good food and great wine!

I could go on and on about the details but that everyone has covered so I'll stick to my... More

This small, cozy Italian restaurant really delivers. It is a quaint, authentic Italian eatery with wonderful food. The concierge at the Plaza Hotel Lucchesi recommended this restaurant and it did not disappoint. They have a very attentive staff to help with the menu selections and the home made pasta was delightful. The owner recommended a very nice red wine for... More

I have booked my anniversary dinner s at this restaurant for many years...what I really loved were the renaissance recipes of the experienced and talented cook Alessi, that made the place absolutely unique in Florence. The food was so delicious and each recipe had its explanation and history on the menu. Now the restaurant has turned into an average trattoria:... More

I went here with my Mom one night. When we arrived, they were booked and we'd have to wait 5 minutes. The host immediately poured each of us a huge glass of Prosecco and made friendly conversation. We felt immediately welcomed. The atmosphere is a bit no frills, but it's great if you're just looking for a good meal at... More

I had a dinner with a colleague here the other night: I chose this restaurant because I had gone here about five or six years ago, when the restaurant specialized in Renaissance cuisine. There menu has changed to more contemporary Tuscan fare, but the food — we ordered a bistecca — was delicious. In addition, the waiter lavished us with... More

We called in here at the last minute as it was close to our hotel and we were very happy with the service and cute little restaurant. My husband asked Saverio, our fantastic host, for the special which was Florentine Steak and we were advised that it was for two. When I asked if we should order sides or anything,... More
