Fodor's Review

The food at this upscale trattoria is fantastic, from the creamy crostini di fegatini (a savory chicken-liver spread) to the melt-in-your-mouth desserts. Many Florentines hail this as the city's best restaurant, and justifiably so. Chef-owner Fabio Picchi knows Tuscan food better than anyone, and though there's not a pasta dish to be seen on the menu (he argues that Florence doesn't really have any native pasta dishes), his deep understanding of Tuscan food shines through. If you thought you'd never try tripe—let alone like it—this is the place to lay any doubts to rest: the trippa in insalata (cold tripe salad) with parsley and garlic is an epiphany. The food is impeccably served by a staff that's multilingual—which is a good thing, because there are no written menus.
