We made the mistake of not making a booking, but lucked out and got the last table. We felt comfortable the moment we sat down and the waitresses took the time to laugh with us even though they were very, very busy. The starters set the tone. The pheasant ravioli in truffle sauce was one of the best appetizers of my life. And the spinach salad with shaved parmesan & truffled carpaccio was amazing as well. Our mains: boar stew with polenta, eggplant parmesan , and roast pork were all extraordinary. We enjoyed a bottle of Carmignano with dinner and some Vin Santo with our tiramisu. It was a fantastic meal and a memorable evening. Can't wait to go back.

We had eggplant parmigiana, it was fantastic. Then lamb with roasted potatoes, it was good but lamb quality may be better. By the way potatoes were excellent. For desert we have milehoja with chantilli cream, the best I ever had. Crispy in every every time you have a bite. House wine was excellent and good value.
Service was good and polite but in a hurry. Only two servers were taking care of the place.
In summary, good local restaurant .
Will repeat without a doubt.
Much better than many other places in the center.

We were told by friends who live in Florence to avoid restaurants around Duomo , and check out the ones around the Santa Croce church. Hence their recommendation of this place. The owner of the restaurant was warm and welcoming. We ordered an antipasto salad which was very generous and delicious. Ditto for the steak Florentine, a most fantastic artichoke salad, and the desserts. The only dish which was so-so was the pasta with clams. From reading the other reviews, it seems as though seafood or fish is not the restaurant's forte. Still, it's a very good restaurant, well worth a visit. We really enjoyed it and would visit it again.

Friendly, traditional trattoria. Food wasn't that great, but I got the feeling it was an off day. The service is quite friendly and prompt. Maybe it's worth another try.

My boyfriend and I travelled to Florence back in 2015 and from excellent reviews ate here. We returned 4 times during our stay in Florence and was amazed by the quality of food, wine and atmosphere this gem offered. Even now years later I still fantasize about how lovely our meals were here. Can't wait to return when we go back to Florence (hopefully sooner than later.)
