Casalinga means "housewife," and this place has the nostalgic charm of a 1950s kitchen with Tuscan comfort food to match. If you eat ribollita anywhere in Florence, eat it here—it couldn't be more authentic. Mediocre paintings clutter the semipaneled walls, tables are set close together, and the place is usually jammed. The menu is long, portions are plentiful, and service is prompt and friendly. For dessert, the lemon sorbet perfectly caps off the meal.

I used to eat here daily while in college. It was a treat to come back years (decades???) later to find this place still vibrant and authentic. Just good, home-cooked meals with friendly, yet somewhat abrupt, service. Buon appetito!

Ate there twice on my last visit,once at lunch and once at night. The service is somewhat gruff they serve great food you might expect from someones grandmother. Basic fare but quite tasty!You will probably need a reservation.
