가이드분의 추천으로 가게되넜는제 진짜 피렌체에서 먹은 파스타 중에 제일 맛있었어요. 각 파스타에 알맞는 면으로 파스타를 만드는데 면의 다름(?)을 느껴보는 재미도 있구요. 저는 트러플 파스타먹었는데 진짜 인생파스타를 만났습니다. 알리오올리오도 풍부한 마늘향과 적당하게 알싸한 매운맛이 올라와서 느끼함에 지친 부모님들에게 제격일 것 같아요. 진짜 강추입니다!! Someone recommended to...More

Awful awful disgusting food! Not sure how it made the top list here. A scam at best and people certainly did not try real Tuscan food! Sent my Italian friends there as well, and they left half a way. It’s a joke

Inspired by the flavors of Florentine cuisine, as well as that of Tuscany, famous all over the world, Brandolino based his secret of simple and natural ingredients, even if we are poor, local products, which enhance easily the passion of the preparation. The recipes, which proposes, are mainly derived from the most popular dishes from the "Twelve greedy", scions of wealthy Florentines, who lived in the mid-thirteenth century. Cited by great authors such as Dante and Boccaccio, they had gathered in the "Brigade good living", whose sole purpose was to squander the family fortune in riotous living. Apparently they had drawn much of Association in which the poor, as the end goal of their money, and that once achieved, they broke up. The house in which they had headquarters was known as the "Consume". Inspired by this story we want to give everyone the chance to discover the pleasure of food and spend a fun evening. The atmosphere, the quality of food, the culinary skills of our staff will always surprise you for tradition combined with innovation. All this is to rediscover the true pleasures of life.
