It's a pity the quality of food is not at the level.., too pretentious. Concentrated on the originality of the ingredients instead of the taste... I am very sorry because the place is amazing but we did not like the food... please change the chef

I was in Florence in June for a short business trip, and I met my client here. Wonderful service, excellent wine selection and set menus. Definitely the place to go both with important clients or with your loved one. Coming back soon!

Organising our group was like herding cats and I had to change booking time and number on 4 occasions. The staff took this in the most polite and professional way and served up a tasting menu which had the group universally complimenting both the presentation,...More

Some of the dishes were outstanding and spot-on. Others, complete failure. What stands out is the focaccia bread - wow; the Papa al Pomodoro dish was exquisite; the dessert was alright, but the gold pop-rocks - well, there's something there in that one! It's a...More

We went to this restaurant on a recommendation, and learned too late that it was overpriced with little selection. The menu offered just three full-course selections for 120 Euro each, but as we observed, the portions were tiny. Not surprisingly the wine, while good, was...More

Beautiful location. Lovely staff. But not good enough to make up for an uneven overpriced meal. There were bright spots but almost half the dishes were less than mediocre and even the gnocchi were bad. The chef is creative but not that tasty. There was...More
