Description: 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.

This location was recommended to me and during my trip to Florence and I decided to visit it. I ate here the best carpaccio and beef ever !
The nice romantic atmosphere and the charm of staff made me love more Italian cuisine and food...
It s very close to the center and I fully recommend it!

I went for dinner last night given the celiac certification of the restaurant and I’ve been sick the whole night!The food was not great. The serious issue, however, is that as a celiac I did not feel reassured from the first minute I sat at the table. I informed the staff that I’m celiac and that the other guest I was with isn’t. The staff brought bread on the table that wasn’t gluten free without advising so. When they later got the gluten-free bread basket on the table I noted it was not protected to avoid contamination. In sum, a very bad experience. I almost had to call the doctor last night. Nothing worse and more misleading than a certified gluten free restaurant ( where the celiac customer relaxes and for once should not worry about what gets served) that does not take celiac guests seriously and professionally enough. I travel all the time and have managed to coexist well with my disease. I had not been so sick in months!! And the food was really not great by any standards(I’m Italian and know what crostini toppings should really taste!). I will also inform the associazione celiaci accordingly.

Salve ,come già ho ribadito di persona non capisco il motivo della sua notte da inferno visto che lei ha mangiato tutto senza glutine.Seconda di poi il pane senza glutine viene fatto da noi e non c'è nessun motivo per il quale dobbiamo servirlo coperto visto che è ben distante dal pane tradizionale conservato in appositi contenitori.Concludo dicendo solo che il glutine non vola e da noi la contaminazione è pari a ZERO! Saluti

We had lunch here on a damp, deary day. It was a great break from the chill. The pasta and service were both great.
