Description: We are located in the historic center of Florence, between Piazza del Duomo and San Marco and we offer a simple and tasty cuisine, made with the freshest ingredients of the highest quality. We owned a small farm in Reggello that provides us vegetables, fruit and extra virgin olive oil certified organic by ICEA. For this reason our menu is seasonal and changes every three months according to the production of the garden. The focus is on offer vegetarian dishes and great attention is paid to the Gluten Free offer, almost everything on the menu is suitable for people with celiac disease! Limited offer of meat, but always available in most traditional recipes:)

Fabulous and inventive menu. Prides itself on organic, and zero miles food. The bit that really matters is that it is all totally delicious, beautifully presented and accompanied by great organic wines. Highly recommended if you are in central Florence.

We had the mixed vegetarian platter and artichoke crepes at this largely vegetarian restaurant. Both were very good. Service was friendly after a slow start as we turned up for a very early dinner around 17.30. For the meals, mineral water, two coffees and a glass of chianti, all up 37 euros.

The food was great and fresh, and staff was very friendly. Prices were also reasonable as well as the location, which was right around the corner from the Galleria dell'Accademia.

Went with a friend for our first meal in Florence. Made a very good first impression! We had the broccoli flan, lasagna and crepes for the autumn menu.

We went a family of five. Place small, very nice and quiet. Food really good but only few options for veggies&gluten free. There are better options in Florence for this type of food. Service very good except for the deserts, that we had to wait a little more than normal because new people came in. It was worth because desserts were really good (chocolate and cheese cakes) We recomend it, althought a little expensive.
