This restaurant has gone downhill -very disappointing
We have visited this restaurant on our last two trips to Florence and it was quite good. However this trip we had dinner here and I have to say it was the worst dining experience of my 5 week trip.
The service was very brisk and cool (I can handle that) but the food was awful It was full of tourists and one table of Italian men.
I speak Italian quite well but even that didn't help me get any service.
I chose the Caprese salad as an entree, I was shocked to see it arrive as one very green tomato cut into quarters and 2 pieces of buffalo cheese that was very stringy and old. I then had to ask for oil so I could dress it. After 10 minutes of waiting for the oil I got up and walked over to the counter and retrieved the oil - no one even noticed. In the end the salad was inedible and when the waiter cleared my plate still 3/4 full he didn't blink an eyelid or ask if there was a problem.
My husband had a seafood salad that was very bland. For mains I had beef skewers which were overcooked and very dry. My husband had a tagliata which he rated as the toughest he had in our time in Tuscany.
With coffee and chianti the bill was 75 euros.
This place is now too busy and seem to treat tourists with contempt and has lost the rustic trattoria touch - don't bother going, there are too many other good restaurants in Florence
