Local osteria with a sophisticated twist. Very warm welcome from the “boss”, good sense of humor and great taste in wines. All at a reasonable price. Best dinner in Montisi and around!

Destination quality food and wine without pretense. Family-owned, beautiful setting for lunch or dinner. Simple with complimentary flavors and textures in a traditional Tuscan food theme. Great selection of wines, olive oils, pastas, grilled meats, vegetables, deserts. Reasonably-priced. Don't miss eating here.
