Description: The restaurant the Tuscan and 'a land of balance, "happy medium", where strong traditions, climate and culture tell a gastronomic history ancient, simple and tasty but deliberately simple. On this principle was born the restaurant "the cricket moro", from recipes to melia grandmother, and aunt of nena brown , written on small exercise books faded and sometimes oil-stained days of threshing. Today our passion for cooking and 'became profession. Pici with dumplings and noodles made by hand, with show-cooking dishes such as "joke of Chianina filippo ", but most of the cricket moro "The ciccio bono". Our attention in the selection of meat, matured for 33 days in vertical on and off and in cooking, makes us one of the best places to eat in Florence in Tuscany. The rite of its cut, Ext "filleting" with love and precision, the hot plate at 140 degrees, the salt of Volterra, oil "dievole" and black pepper make the magic of this moment. See you Soon filippo and his staff

We ate here on our last night of a 2 week vacation in Tuscany. We have traveled extensively through the region and ate at many fine restaurants but this one was the best of all that we tried. Wonderful outdoor dining, extremely attentive and friendly service and a menu that was chocked full of local delicacies. Oh, and the wine list provided lots of options for local wines.

Can't wait to go back.

Visited recently with my cousin and her husband and took advantage of the Florentine steak 1.5 kg between 3 of us and what a meal ! Service was excellent as was the food and fully supported our decision to revisit after first visiting a couple of years ago. This is a family owned and run establishment with associated bed and breakfast accommodation which I suspect is just as impressive.

Very typical Italian dishes. The best bistecca fiorentina in the region. Nice to sit in the garden. You must make a reservation as a lot of local families go there for family diners and special family get togethers.
A treasure and a place we always visit again since years when we are on holidays in that area.

We were surprised, what a welcome, and the food is exactly where you come for, authentic italian grill / meat at a correct privé. Bravo Philippo and team. I was sorry the battuda was only available as starter ;-)
