We happened upon this place searching for another restaurant which apparently had closed. TripAdvisor ratings were pretty good, so we went in! The restaurant is a narrow one, but opens up significantly when you go back inside. The staff are very friendly and speak English well (or well enough). The atmosphere is bright, but a bit worn in a nice... More

This restaurant was virtually opposite our hotel (Berna). Recommended by the hotel Proprietor Nadia. Excellent food, massive quantities, very reasonable prices. House wine was also good and half the price of bottles. If you are in the area don't miss the opportunity for a meal here.

Meat was very tender. I ate a very tasty pork meat lacked with bbq home made sauce. Awesome. Finally, we will write some words for Anna, the nicest and smiliest... More

This is an amazing place. Not much of an entrance, but when you get inside it is fantastic. Friendly staff and service is great and quick. Pizza was huge and we had no problem eating the entire thing.

Tried a great steak, cheese plate, and a nice dessert. Friendly and prompt service. My friend ordered pizza and it was not only a tasty and great looking pie, it was huge.

We had 2 hours to wait for our shuttle bus and decided to walk and find a garden restaurant to chill and have lunch. The front window had T-bone steak in the window and a big sign showing GARDEN AT REAR. Best move we did! The special pizza and mixed salad to share was delicious. Eaten in the small garden... More

When we visited Florence in the summer, we were happy that there were a range of places in the vicinity to eat at. However, we ended up at this restaurant three times during our stay because we loved it that much! The food was amazing and the service was fantastic. Everyone was so friendly and remembered us from the time... More
