" Tasty and well prepared dishes "

Excellent find. Tasty and well prepared dishes made with the freshest ingredients. Particularly good for vegetarians. The €40 tasting menu is recommended.

" Beautiful food and friendly service "

This is a great little restaurant focused on fresh local ingredients. The service was excellent and friendly. There are two degustation menus for vegetarian and meat dishes, at €40 for 3 courses plus dessert, matched with 3 wines and coffee. We really enjoyed the food and had a lovely evening.

" Great lunch in very center of Florence "

We were so pleased with the food and service, that we had to repeat! And if we stayed more in Florence, we would stick to this place definitely. It’s all about high quality ecologic products, from the farm owned by restaurant owner, everything extremely tasty, and healthy at the same time! Don’t loose a chance to taste the best lasagna ever, although any plate you order will suprise you!
