Food was excellent as was the service, typical family style Italian restaurant, great menu choice, could eat here many times over and not run out of things to order. Wine selection is extensive and mainly local, staff very knowledgable.

times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can
reach the city center, the Florence that everybody
dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can

Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio

When talking about Tuscan cooking we talk about tradition told in many dishes ranging from Commune to Commune, from season to season and from the many varieties of products that our territory offers. Our intent has always been to follow the season, giving you the chance to taste the most regional specialties, changing the menu several times a year. We are nevertheless proud to be able to do this without GLUTINE and use most vegetables and vegetables at KM Zero.
