I will start off by saying the food was good. That is the only saving grace. But my focus is the service. If you would like to be talked about rudely in Italian and mocked by the staff of this restaurant the entire time you're...More

We had a wonderful dinner with great food. Typical tuscan food and we felt like grandma made dinner for us. We can recommend this place, however, reservations are needed.

The food was not bad, but the service was one of the worst I have ever had. We asked if we could have dinner and they said that it was ok, that they were opened. Since we ordered until they brought the bill (without asking...More

Lovely, small, family restaurant - easy walk from the Duomo. Starters phenomenal (try the fantastico!) and the gnocchi in 'special sauce' live up to their reputation. Slightly confusing wine list - but no need to bother really as the 'house wine' is a very decent...More

We chose the famous gnocchi which was very good. Roasted veal was OK, but nothing special. Wanted to try the veal steak at 3 euro per 100 gms but minimum order size was 1 kilo (2.2 lbs), which is way beyond what the two of...More

Best meal in Italy! A family restaurant run with love. Make sure to make a reservation. We saw several people turned away Sunday night. Nona's grand daughter waited on us and deciphered the hand written menu. The antipast de Nona consisted of eggplant, pickled onions,...More

This is a very casual venue with an authentic feel. I liked their busy décor and the hand written menus. We tried the fusilli and their famous ‘gnocchi alla lella’ (cheese filled gnocchi). While the fusilli was very nice, the gnocchi was absolutely delicious! In...More
