My husband and I stopped by without a reservation and were able to get seated right away. We started with the bruschetta which was average, but the entrées definitely made up for it. I got a half-size portion of the cheesy gnocchi with truffle oil and it was the best preparation of gnocchi I've ever had in my life. The... More

We went with a big group of people and the service was great! We sat upstairs which was nice as the first floor was a little warm from the proximity to the kitchen. The gnocchi is a must try, tastes like super fancy mac and cheese. Our waitress was very nice, and the full size portions were more than enough... More

My girlfriend and I came here on the recommendation of a friend. We made a reservation for 5:30 pm about 2 hours in advanced because it gets busy (it filled out about 10 minutes after we arrived). They serve complementary bread and olive paste, which was SOOOO good. I ordered the gnocchi which was amazing, and my girlfriend ordered the... More

I have called this osteria twice for INSiDE reservations and both times we were denied inside seating and both times the hostess was rude, nonchalant and unprofessional! She could care less and offered no apologies. Needless to say we will never patronize this ristorante again.

Was recommended to eat here by my host and the food was delicious. Was given a truffle spread for the bread which was amazing. I ordered the cheesy gnocchi and it was to die for. My favorite meal in Italy. Unfortunately the staff was rude. We noticed they were unkind to anyone who showed up for lunch without a reservation... More

We really enjoyed our meal here - the food was delicious, the staff were friendly and the atmosphere was lively and fun with a mostly young clientele. It's on the corner of Piazza Santo Spirito which is quite a studenty area so the whole area around it was fun and lively.

It was recommended by a local - The Gnocchi was awesome! It's always busy, so make a reservation before you go.

We were seated in the outside patio area. Service was warm and attentive. We enjoyed a cask of the house red, a rich Tuscan soup and shared two huge pasta dishes. The four cheese gnocchi was out of this world - pillow like gnocchi in a rich, creamy sauce. It was a simple, lovely meal and I think was 60... More

A picturesque Osteria in Florence, in Piazza Santo Spirito (close to Pitti Palace and Ponte Vecchio), a very crowded place, but not in a disturbing way. A true Italian Osteria - good food at affordable prices. Gnocchi are really delicious. I recommend small portion (6.50 euro) cause it's big enough for a normal hunger. Besides, it's quite a "heavy" meal,... More

I dreamed with this osteria for months, planning my trip to Firenze. We were a group of 3: me, my husband and our little daughter. We arrived around 5pm. The waitress asked if we had booked in advance, we said no. She then gave us a table right next to the toilet, althought the room was empty. Nevermind. We had... More
