This is a really popular place for lunch, very near to the Medici church of San Lorenzo. As far as I know, booking is not an option. If you arrive and they're full then they take your name and you have to wait in the...More

Probably the best meal during our week in Italy. It's cramped, social, and wonderful.The pasta, veal, atmosphere, house wine, and staff were all great.
