I am surprised by the low rating for this restaurant. We went on the recommendation of a very highly respected culinary friend. We made a reservation. We dressed for dinner. It was for a evening meal, specifically for the famous Bistecca alla Fiorentina (not for ice cream for the kids). A taxi ride into the hills outside Florence made for a romantic start to a perfect dining experience. The staff was cordial, gracious and attentive. The massive, perfectly grilled, aromatically- perfumed specialty of the region was so good - the garlic rubbed into bone before grilling, the use of salt and excellent olive oil to finish the steak, the presentation were all excellent. Accompanied by superb Tuscan wines, it made for a flawless experience. Yes, we had delicious appetizers and tasty side dishes, all subordinate to the steak. If you are a meat-and-potatoes person, forget the spuds and take your significant other by taxi, on a starlight night, above Florence for a true taste of Tuscany.
