“Nice food, pleasant restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2009

We chose this restaurant because of its vacinity to our hotel, the Grand Baglioni, and also because it offered a selection of traditional tuscan fare.

The food was of a very good standard, however I had ordered wild boar and when my plate arrived it looked suspiciously like beef with fresh Porcini. The waitress swore blind it was Boar; and the meal was delicious, however the I overheard a person behind me complain that his beef tasted like pork and he couldn't find any Porcini in his sauce!
Even with this obvious mistake I will visit this restaurant again.

“Delicious, friendly, and great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2009

The fixed price menu was delicious and interesting, well worth the reasonable (for Florence) price. It included not only a first and a second, but drinks and dessert.

The service was excellent, with the typically friendly Italian staff.

The location is an easy walk from the train station, just north of Piazza S. Maria Novella. It's on a busy street, so we chose to eat inside the attractive, air conditioned restaurant.

“Worth looking for.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2009

Stayed in the Grand Hotel Baglioni and went looking for a nearby restaurant. Wandered in there and ended up going back two more times during the week. The food is tasty and well-prepared. The decor is charming and not overtly "touristy." We were served by different people at each visit. The first younger man was quite pleasant, the younger woman the second time seemed to ignore us, and the older waiter the last time seem pleased to allow us to try our fractured Italian. The wine list seemed to be more than sufficient, and the vino chianti alla casa is a really good value.
