A lovely setting downstairs. The service was good but did not meet the expectations of previous reviewers. The food was nice. The wild boar was the highlight. The beef stew too fatty; the gnocchi not the best we've eaten in Italy and the Tuscan pesto...More

This restaurant was very close to our Airbnb apartment in Florence. We had our first and last dinners in Florence there, and were very happy both times. The service was excellent and the food very good. I couldn't have been happier.

Had to wait 10 minutes for reservation and they gave us all a glass of prosecco - so nice!!! Very attentive and friendly service. Menu had a good selection and food was yummy. The service was incredible, though!

Our hotel recommended this restaurant, which we otherwise would not have found. It is located in an alley near the Palazzo Vecchio. A great restaurant and great value. The food is wonderful Tuscan cuisine. Delicious and reasonably priced.

Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time
will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past
times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can
reach the city center, the Florence that everybody
dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can
experience the rare beauty of the capital of the
Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio
and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the
