We stumbled upon this restaurant after walking the streets looking for an Osteria we had seen the day before but could not find again. It was a very pleasant surprise. With most dinners opting to sit in the courtyard we had essentially a private dining...More

We ate dinner here twice as we loved the fried artichokes. Unfortunately they weren't available the second night. The pasta is good as was the sliced steak and roasted chicken.

This very small restaurant could easily be missed due to it's location on a small alley next to the Ponte Vecchio. Our friend Bob recommended it and our tour guide concurred that it was an excellent choice for lunch. The food was superb!

우연히 방문했는데 정말 맛있었음!! 이것이 여행의 묘미!! 일본인은 많이오더군요 한국인에게는 많이 알려지지 않은듯!! I was there by chance. Food was very good. Especially steak is very wonderful. I'll come by aoon before leaving Firenze!!

Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time
will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past
