We absolutely loved this restaurant and ate here twice. First time we order Bistecca all Fiorentina. We basically got a huge 2kg steak on the table, medium-rare to rare and it was probably the best steak I've ever had! All other dishes we've ordered were...More

This restaurant is known for their steaks all around Tuscany. We drove for miles just to eat here and only because wherever we went people kept bringing it up. So we had high expectations as you can imagine and to be honest it exceeded them....More

The restaurant the Tuscan and 'a land of balance, "happy medium", where strong traditions, climate and culture tell a gastronomic history ancient, simple and tasty but deliberately simple. On this principle was born the restaurant "the cricket moro", from recipes to melia grandmother, and aunt of nena brown , written on small exercise books faded and sometimes oil-stained days of threshing. Today our passion for cooking and 'became profession. Pici with dumplings and noodles made by hand, with show-cooking dishes such as "joke of Chianina filippo ", but most of the cricket moro "The ciccio bono". Our attention in the selection of meat, matured for 33 days in vertical on and off and in cooking, makes us one of the best places to eat in Florence in Tuscany. The rite of its cut, Ext "filleting" with love and precision, the hot plate at 140 degrees, the salt of Volterra, oil "dievole" and black pepper make the magic of this moment. Our smile, friendly and welcoming atmosphere in a nostrale of modern times with old values, you expect in our house. Soon filippo and his staff
