...this place. It's small, magical even in mid summer. Owner's son took care of us, and the tasting menu of appetizers and first dishes improvised by our host was so good, that we couldn't make it to the seconds. The menu is original, well thought and really well prepared and balanced. The selection of wines was good. On top of... More

It is so fantastic. The service is very nice and the food is very-very tasty. We tried the risotto and duck were both very satisfied.

Had a delightful lunch here. Wine with the restaurant's label was a perfect light white summer wine. Three courses offered for lunch. Bruschetta was fine. Spaghetti carbonara needed another 30 seconds to be al dente. The chocolate mousse was the best I've tasted.

This restraint is suitable for haute cuisine-lovers. They serve very interesting and uncommon dishes, as a harmonious addition to the meal there is a wine list with fine Italian wines. Mention may be made of desserts because they are a very original, served on mirrored plates, plus they are insanely delicious, if you have a sweet tooth, you will appreciate... More

Went there a few times, always had excellent food and wine! It's not a restaurant to go everyday as it is slightly expensive, but not overpriced at all (in my opinion). I would definitely recommend it! The only thing that might be considered negative is the location, as you definitely need a car to get there! On the other hand... More

We went at lunchtime to discover this hidden gem of a wonderful countryside restaurant located at Coltano near Pisa. The owner, Robert was a very gracious host and insisted that our Labrador dog had to come too since he has a Spaniel dog of his own. He was very courteous, polite and informative about the food ingredients. He even offered... More

What an incredible little restaurant. Hidden deep in the Italian countryside is this family run eatery that offers simply prepared, local ingredients and more than enough intrigue to tempt you into wanting to try everything. We were lucky enough to go for lunch on a Tuesday lunch and basically had the place to ourselves and were able to enjoy 4... More

Absolutely amazing restaurant far away from all the turists in Pisa but only a 10 minute drive by car. The food was some of the best (maybe the best) we had in the two and a half weeks in Italy and the place is very charming. Very small restaurant with outdoor serving in the small garden. The place was filled... More

I have been here twice: the first one to try and the second one to celebrate my graduation party! The place is beautiful, far from the noise of the city and nestled in the countryside! The way to arrive is a bit rough, but it's worth it. Robert is a great host, despite of his young age, and he makes... More
