San Lorenzo: Il Grillo Parlante

Via Guelfa, 90r , Phone: 055.475291

Closing day: Sunday

Reviewed by: loimln from IL, review #1102

When: 2004

Family run trattoria with a cozy, inviting atmosphere and delicious food.

Directions: Corner of Via Guelfa and Via San Zanobi

We always felt very welcome at this family-run restaurant. On most nights, you will find the owners sitting at the front table waiting to welcome guests as they come in. The owner's daughter-in-law is Australian and has some wonderful stories to share. We were offered the family's homemade meloncello (a version of limoncello) on each visit at no charge.

The gnocchi, risotto, ravioli and florentine steak were all outstanding and reasonably priced. Tiramisu and flan for dessert were great.
