Was great to go back after a few years and have another amazing dinner. I usually stay away from carbs but will always make an exception for their ‘linguine Magnifico’. The steak was excellent. We had a few bottles of Avvoltore at a decent price

Fresh Pasta with Shrimp and Saffron, bruschetta, and a wonderful tiramisu. Really fun family feeling...nice Rosso from Bolgheri at a reasonable price. I find a place like this with no pretension can provide a level of joy that stars from a tire company cannot match

This was a recommendation from AirBnB. Sadly the portions didn't match the price. The food was really good and looked appealing but I actually had better food with larger portions for a better value. I'm by no means cheap and I love good food. Also...More

Thanks for your review! I'm so sorry for the dog, dogs are welcome in our restaurant, but the proprietor should be able to keep silent.... I hope you come back soon!

come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
