Waiter distracted by smart phone did not make much of an effort. For example, Little follow up between dishes and no recommendations or personality. This was more of a cafe with a dinner menu. Food was less than spectacular.

After reading the reviews on this restaurant we were excited to try it since it was just around the corner from our Air B&B. We were very disappointed. The food was mediocre and the service was distracted and unfriendly. On our walk we encountered several restaurants that looked more promising that we will try during our short stay in Florence.

If you are looking for a remarkable chef who is willing to take you beyond the typical Florentine menu, CuCo is the place for you. This hidden treasure is a culinary jewel box. It is intimate and serene, but not precious or formal. The food brakes the mold on the finest of Tuscan cuisine, offering a creative, contemporary spin. Even... More

Lovely place near the train satiation and perfect for a special dinner. The food was beautiful and the wine menu was amazing. Organic wine is better than I could imagine. Very good experience indeed.

Cuco implies something small and cosy, nest-like. This restaurant delivers that. Different feel and food from the typical, five or six tables in total and creative and tasty fare. The soup was marvellous, as was the twice-cooked beef dish (copious portion as well). Only relative down side was the potato "lasagna": though the dish itself was good, it could hardly... More

We had a meal here a couple of nights ago. It was really excellent. The restaurant is tiny but the perfectly balanced menu was a delight to choose from. We had smoked goose which was just lovely and rabbit with figs and pears - again a really beautiful meal. The restaurant is a great mix of simplicity and a love... More

Had a wonderful Saturday night dinner here. Sat upstairs where there are only 2 tables. Nice staff. Had the smoked goose carpaccio, salmon stuffed gnocchi, tomato,bread and fish porridge, stuffed chicken breast, pork loin and rabbit stuffed with pear and figs. Everything was inventive and delicious. The tomato, bread and fish porridge tasted a bit like a puttanesca. The pork... More
