Restaurant Recommendation - Florence

We just ate at an incredible restaurant in Florence. It's called L'osteria di Giovanni, and it's on via del Moro, number 22. Has anyone else tried this place? We were hesitant because we saw the menu posted and the prices were quite a bit higher than the average in Florence. But it looked nice inside, and it was our last night in Italy.

We didn' t make reservations but went around 9, and there were a few tables left. Had the mixed antipasto: Prosciutto, Salame, Finocchiona, Sheep Ricotta, Crostini with Chicken Livers, Crostini with Colonnata Lard - tons of food, but I had to eat it all it was so amazing. Especially the ricotta cheese and prosciutto. It was enough to share, but I was glad to have it all for myself!! The Caprese appetizer was also delicious. Pasta course spaghetti with cherry tomatoes was delicious - more interesting than it sounds - and the 'Rabbit Braised in white wine with Grapes and Green Olives' was also delicious. Chocolate cake was the best I've ever had.

We HIGHLY recommend this restaurant for a more upscale dinner in Florence...and would be interested to know if anyone else has been here or read about it in a guidebook.
