What our customers say

About us

Excellent Tuscan country food- Had the huge T bone steak between 2. Beautifully seared and tender and rare. With rosemary roasted potatoes. Good house wine. The steak was one Kg for 2 with pleasant wine each, at 35 Euros for 2! Excellent value, country family atmosphere with friendly family service. Highly recommended.

Very good- We was walking with my wife from Hotel to the Centre and we looked pictures with "Bistecca per 2 con 2 bicchieri di vino". We ordered it and this was really good. Nice decoration and service. Reustarant since 1939. I recommend.

Great meal in the rain- We came here after Sudden rain forced us to seat down and were pleasantly surprised! The food was great - we had prosciutto with mozzarella, a HUGE 2 person steak and creme Catalan for dessert. Service was good and so was the price.

Great food and wonderful staff- My friend & I were walking about trying to find a place to eat at 9:30 pm on a Friday evening and everything was closed or closing. We poked are head in and they welcomed us in although it was close to closing and there were no other people in the restaurant...


Best Steak of My Life!!!!!- Our hostel recommended this restaurant and when we first arrived there was no one inside so we were skeptical at first but after our meal we were surprised it wasn't packed...

The restaurant in Florence- The best restaurant we found in this city. Florentine, salami, wine, bruscetta was everything amazing. Cheap and friendly service!

Trattoria Il Giardino-This trattoria was recommended to us by our hotel staff as an authentic Tuscany cuisine place. It's a small family run restaurant. The food was excellent. They serve pretty good bottled house wine...
