Had a nice meal here, very friendly staff and would recommend it from that perspective but they imposed a 3 euro cover charge AND a 12% service charge which together was an additional 20 euros for 4 of us. We have since realise that including service charge isn't the general custom and so we felt cheated and taken advantage of.... More

Look no further for a top level classic Italian dinner. Friends told us about this restaurant so we booked a reservation first thing. And are so happy we did! Delicious meal, excellent knowledgeable server and quaint location made for the perfect evening. The menu is extensive so we opted to go with the server recommendations and he made perfect suggestions.... More

The "owner?" was a hoot! He knew the difference between KCK and KCMO. But enough that of that..we had the fried artichokes, ravioli, Cappellacci and the tiramisu. Did I mention a bottle of pinot gris? Awesome meal and service!

Came here for a wonderful lunch with my family yesterday and will say the Florentine steak was absolutely delicious. The staff was very kind and attentive and sitting outside on a beautiful day in Florence is a must do.

The food here is top notch. I had a sliced steak with white truffle parmesan sauce and it was to die for. One of the best meals I had the week I was there. Franco is a top notch waiter!!

Food was way below par and arrived cold. The surroundings were less than inspiring and the cleanliness of the restaurant left a lot to be desired. The poor hygiene of the staff was obvious to all in the group. The head waiter was extremely difficult to deal with on what was clearly an overpriced and exorbitant bill. We were overcharged...

Dear customer, I'm sorry, but we have much difficulty in believing your review. First, thanks for honor us with your first review (it will be a real profile?). Leaving aside this, we never promised dishes offered to our customers then we did pay, you're saying that we're cheaters and this we consider it an insult. Then I want to know... More
