Visited this restaurant several times the last few years. Chiara and her husband brings very good food on the table. All from the region and the season! Good quality products, with slow cooking. Last time I ate the Tagiliatella and Caniglio: so pure in taste....More

The food was excellent. The family shared a 'fiorentina' BBQ'd streak which is simply the best steak we have had in years. The service was very friendly and attentive. Atmosphere is very informal and laid back... booking advisable.
