After traveling in the Cinque Terre and eating incredibly well in rural Tuscany we arrived in Florence expecting big city prices and touristy food. We were very pleasantly surprised by this Trattoria just off the beaten path. Their fresh pasta was absolutely excellent including lobster spaghetti, pesto lasagna and house made spinach ricotta ravioli with gorgonzola sauce. We had a fillet of beef and green peppercorn and whiskey sauce which was absolutely outstanding and perfectly cooked to medium rare, and a pork chop with mushroom, tomato and cream sauce also extremely tender and cooked to perfection.

I have no idea where the negative reviews came from because we had a flawless experience from the service to the food, fantastic handmade craft desserts down to reasonable prices. Would definitely return and recommend any foodie tourists like ourselves to visit this excellent establishment.

Ok first let’s start by saying something about the reviews..... the people reviewing need to consider this is a tiny local spot with 2 opinions on the menu! 1 is a Florentine steak the other is a 2 part choice menu, and there are 5 choices for the the 1st and 5 for the second. The service is sincere, cordial and professional. The food is very good quality and very well priced.
We had lunch and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Ps I live in Florence (I’m American)

It is in a street very pacefully, so you won't have any problem with the noises. It Will be a very relaxed lunch/dinner.
So we reccomend lasagna al pesto and salmon al grill. The cooker is really good and the waiters are very friendly.

Beppi and Daniella are super fixtures/wait staff at this Florentine landmark. Admittedly our favorite trattoria in Florence. We've been here many times.

Food is excellent--had onion soup, risotto and pasta. In past visits, the steaks have been excellent too.

Fairly priced food served lovingly. Don't miss this gem.

Make reservations if possible.

Food was okay - nothing special. The staff were extremely rude and not at all welcoming. I would not recommend this restaurent at all.
