    spent 3 nights in Florence and went to this restaurant 2 times . They served warm gf bread, and have a separate gf menu. The food was excellent and they have 5 or 6 gf deserts. I highly recommend the gf apple cake. If I ever return to Florence this will be the first restaurant I go to

    Had lunch here. I am celiac, my wife is not. They knew exactly what I was speaking about and immediately provided gluten free menu and gluten free bread. The chicken dish was amazing with a light lemon sauce and roasted potatoes. Paired it with an excellent wine. We will be coming back again.

    WONDERFUL. The gnocchi with gorgonzola and pear was to die for! Fair warning: don't freak out because on their gluten free menu it claims some of the products still have wheat. After talking to my waitress, I realized the wheat they're using is Buckwheat, it just doesn't translate well. They really understand gf here, would definitely recommend!

    So impressed by this place that I ate there two nights in a row. GF bread basket, GF gnocchi, GF squid ink ridotto, and GF biscotti, all for an extremely reasonable price. Tasty food, awesome atmosphere!

    While everything was delicious, they need to learn something about gluten free cooking. My wife, who has celiac disease, ordered from the gluten free menu. Almost as soon as we left the restaurant, she became very ill. Our guess is they cooked her gluten free pasta in the same water as regular pasta, or cross contaminated the gluten free bread products.

    This place is heaven for a celiac! Everything I ate was amazing! They have a dedicated fryer so I was finally able to have something fried. Before the meal started they brought out a complementary soup and gluten-free bread basket. The steak was amazing! I even got to have cheesecake with mixed berries. At the end of our meal they gave us gluten-free Biscotti. Even my family who are not gluten-free enjoyed their amazing menu. The prices were right and the service was fantastic!
