This rustically elegant space, which has served many purposes over the past 600 years, offers some of the tastiest food in town at great prices. It's the perfect place to come if you aren't sure what you're hungry for, as they offer a little bit of everything: salad-lovers will have a hard time choosing from among the lengthy list (the Scozzese, with poached chicken, avocado, and bacon, is a winner); those with a yen for pasta will face agonizing choices (the ravioli with pecorino and pears is particularly good). A revolving list of piatti unici (single dishes that can be ordered on their own, usually served only at lunch) can also whet the whistle, as well as terrific cheese and cured meat plates. The well-culled wine list has lots of great wines by the glass, and even more by the bottle.

Not just a place to eat. The atmosphere was very welcoming and was very clean. Just a little side trip from the Duomo. Right down the street from a great gelaterie, Grom. We tried several dishes here because after our first night in Firenze and dining here we had to return a couple of nights later. We only had three nights there and we had to enjoy dining here two times. Personally, I am not a real fan of pasta/Italian food but this place changed
my mind for sure. The ravioli with pecorino cheese and pears (little pouches or bags of pasta with the cheese and pears inside) was the best pasta dish I have ever had. And I am hard to please. The service was fantastic and thorough. Now all I need is the recipe???
