A small restaurant with a personal touch. Host is quick to interact and help with recommendations. Obviously, due to its size, there is a limited menu but very enjoyable nevertheless. Was a nice change to the many other restaurants serving the same old dishes.

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 9 April 2017

This is a very small, family-run place with a daily varying menu. The dishes are pure craftsmanship and because of the small size of the place, you feel like you have a personal chef cooking for you. We had a 3 course meal including wine for 75 EUR. Highly recommended!

My wife and I were looking for a bite quite late one night. We were staying at a local hotel and we popped in. It is a small place, but thankfully they had one table left. Although it was quite late, they were willing to work us in. A small, handwritten menu was waiting for us. Generally, this is a... More

We chose this restaurant after reading Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. We hadn't booked a table but were accommodated (possibly because we arrived early by Florence standards, at about 7.45pm - the restaurant was empty when we arrived but full by the time we left). The waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. We were given... More

Wow! This was the best meal we've had in Florence so far. The restaurant is only very small - five tables for two inside and a further three tables, also for two, outside but that does not distract from either the standard of the food or the quality of the service. Before the meal started we were given a small... More

We had dinner at Cuco on our first night in Florence after reading good reviews. The waiter spoke perfect English and was very friendly. The menu was handwritten and he explained the specials of the day with many patience. The food was lovely and was served quickly, but super fresh and very tasty! Great value for your money. Great local... More

My partner and I were in florence for our anniversary and someone at our hotel recommended this little hole in the wall. The food was amazing, the service was top. Especially since the waiter knew english. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to get away from the course and have a great meal.

As I told our waiter after we had finished, "The meal was not what I expected, but was more than I could have hoped for." This was not what I know as Italian cuisine. No pasta, No steak, No eggplant. (If you want Risotto, go to Sicily.) The food was different, but excellent. Tasty, well prepared and attractively presented. Don't... More
