Fodor's Review

Come early (or late) to grab a seat at this tiny spot frequented by Florentine university students and businesspeople. You can get a sandwich to go or sit and enjoy the day's primi (such as a terrific lasagne) and follow it with their polpettona (meat loaf) and tomato sauce. Though seats are cramped and the wine is no great shakes, the service is friendly and the food hits the spot. Groups of 15 or more can reserve in the evening for special meals.
