This restaurant is located across the Ponte Vecchio in the Piazza della Passera. We arrived around 8:00pm with no reservations but there were seats still available. Our waiter lacked a bit customer service… It definitely did not compare to Giovanni’s treatment the previous night! However, the food, the dessert and wine was excellent!!!
Starter: Bruschetta all’olio. I’m never going back to breads with butter! This is how bread should be eaten…soaked in olive oil and sea salt.
My dish: Fiocchetti di pera. I need to get this recipe and try it out at home! I left nothing on my plate…and I still wanted more!! I never would have thought of putting pears in a pasta dish.
My +1’s dish: This was the restaurant daily dish since the Risotto ai cachiori wasn’t available. But it did not disappoint, very good and spicy! I ended up eating his dish as well. :)
Dessert: Cenci e vin santo. It was simple and light. A nice ending for our meal.

The desserts deserved their post all on its own.
First dessert: Picnic in a Basket. :) The cuteness. What’s not to love.
The wild berries were both sweet and tart.
Oh, the vanilla bean custard. Not too sweet, so smooth and creamy.
The waffle was a mille feuille pastry. We assembled the ingredients all together and separately. Either way was delicious.
Second dessert: Fine crepe filled with chantilly and orange zest.
