Fodor's Review

Mozzarella takes center stage at this sleek eatery on Florence's swankiest street. The cheese, along with its culinary cousin burrata (a fresh cheese filled with cream), arrives daily from southern Italy to become the centerpiece for various salads and pastas. Four different kinds of rotoli (rolled, stuffed mozzarella) are available; the one with smoked salmon and arugula is particularly tasty. You can pair your cheese with a number of accompaniments, including caponata (a Sicilian eggplant mélange) and mortadella from nearby Prato. Efficient service (in a 16th-century palazzo courtyard when the weather's nice) and a well-priced wine list add to the pleasure of a meal here. Nightly happy hour, with an extensive selection of snacks, is fun and a bargain.
