Respond to Review of 5 e Cinque
Review: A delightful eating experience. This is an intimate little place in the city centre (just over the Ponte Santa Trinita near to Santo Spirito). We're happy to report that there are now more than five tables, not counting the two outside. though be warned that when it fills up it's all very, well, cosy! Not having made a reservation we were pleased to get in on a Sunday evening and were immediately put at ease by the proprietor, who pulled up a chair and talked us in English through the menu. We had two very interesting and tasty breads as starters - one a delicious flat bread with a liquid cheese (a house special, apparently), the other a sweet one made from (we think) chick pea flour. My main was chickpea croquettes on a bed of warm, crispy vegetable salad - mouth watering. My wife had an asparagus risotto - she said it was the best of its kind she's ever had with a nice 'bite' to the rice. There was a lovely relaxed atmosphere and with many other tempting things on the menu we would certainly have returned had we been longer in the city. PS: It was interesting to see that the Italians on an adjacent table were savouring the delights of one of the guest beers - Sam Smith's organic ale, all the way from Yorkshire! Had we been allowed I'd have given 5 e Cinque five cows: We were assured that, although they sold meat products from the counter, the kitchen is exclusively vegetarian.
