The primi was excessively salty, the secondi uninspiring. It was poor value for money. The ambieince was quite pleasant. But rick Steeves let us down this occasion. Would not return.
We always, and it is unplanned, end up here for lunch every trip to Florence. The location is right behind the Medici Chapels, so super good location to take in one of the best buildings in Florence. Good solid food, usually for lunch, a shared anti-pasti, and another shared dish and half liter of house wine is the perfect lunch... More
Everything was really done "without soul", as the guys were in a hurry... whatever... the eggs with truffles are very weird and even the eggs are looks like not roasted enough, the meat is so-so cooked, and the wine could be better. I enjoyed the mostly parmeggiano cheese and the vegetables from the salad. the only plus is nice interior.... More
We enjoyed this little restaurant very much. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was open at 6pm which is early by Italian standards but suited us. At this early time we were the only patrons but before we left the restaurant was crowded . The first night we ordered a delicious antipasto misto, bolognese pasta and riboletta, house wine... More

We had our only disappointing dinner on a five day trip through Tuscany here. The food was mediocre for the price and the atmosphere strongly resembled a tourist restaurant. There are better options in Florence and only so many dinners on a trip...
A good place to eat local food respecting local traditions in Florence. It offers the possibility to eat inside or outside (most places in Florence just have one option). Good food and really friendly and efficient staff.
Elegant and friendly Trattoria. Good quality food and wine. Slightly more expensive than other local rivals near San Lorenzo but worth the small premium. House wine good value. Stand out item the fried Zucchini flowers. Or possibly, the Liver pate :)
They displayed their Rick Steves guidebook. And all the guests had their Rick Steves guidebooks. So yes, there were tourists. However, the cooking was still regional. And the prices reasonable.
