The food is not bad but what really stands out is the friendly service. The people really went out of their way to provide us with more vegetarian alternatives.

We just happened upon this restaurant on our last night in Florence. What a find! Welcoming and extremely clean. An aperitif, some liquor, was served. The beginning of a great meal. Lamb and salmon were delicious. Lemon sorbet to complete. Fabulous biscotti as well. Too...More
