Fodor's Review

Down the street from the church of Santa Maria Novella, this gaily decorated spot, festooned with ropes of garlic and other vegetables, has an ever-changing menu and stellar service led by the irrepressible Giacinto who, after a brief sabbatical, has returned to oversee tasty-again food emerging from the kitchen. The menu offers Tuscan standards, but shakes things up with alternatives such as sedani con bacon, verza, e uova (thick noodles sauced with bacon, cabbage, and egg); when avocados are ripe, they're on the menu, too (either with cold boiled shrimp or expertly grilled chicken breast). If you want to eat alfresco, request a table outside when booking–-and remember to save room for dessert.
