When: 2012

Quietly charming atmosphere and good value.

Directions: Via Rosina is just off the square in front of the Mercato Centrale. The more famous Trattoria Mario is next door.

The restaurant was only a couple of minutes walk from our rental, so was convenient for our first night in Florence after an early start. We liked it so much it was our choice for our last night's meal as well. It is an airy, mid size room, with no outdoor area, but with a glassless window opening at the front which was a nice summer compromise! The waiting staff are charming and low key and there is gentle music playing.

A complimentary glass of prosecco is brought to the table - there is a long list of Chianti wines on one of the wall boards, but the house red was very acceptable. We had two courses on each of the visits - some antipasti and a main the first time (delicious chicken liver bruschetta) and pasta and desserts the next. The bill for three (two teenage girls not drinking, except for the prosecco !) came to around 55 euros each time which we thought was good value. Amongst the dishes we enjoyed were a wild boar ragu with pappardelle, spaghetti with clams, gorgonzola gnocchi, and meatballs.
