We visited last night after reading strong reviews, and were not disappointed. We received a very warm welcome from the owner and enjoyed a number of excellent dishes, accompanied by a very good Chianti. I was even given updates on the Juventus match :). A charming family-run restaurant, well worth a visit!

We dined at this restaurant on the 1st May and had a totally different experience to that reported by the USA citizens referred to below on the same evening. We returned to eat again this evening and once again thoroughly enjoyed the good food and hospitality of Britta. We hope to return again some day and will recommend the restaurant... More

Excellent menu. I couldn't go past the steak with truffle and it didn't disappoint! Osso bucco was just as delicious! Desert was tirimusu with a twist. Amazing, delicious food which is reasonably priced.

Simply delicious food and wine, excellent and honest recommendations. What makes this place so special its simple but very authentic Italian Toskany design. On the top of it - lovely hosts!! So charming, spontaneous lady, easy to talk with in any language you want (Italian, German, English.... and maybe some more :) ) The great value of money!

I visited from London with a friend in April 2017 upon recommendations from a previous trip. We all had the antipasti followed by wild boar ragu, of which this was one of the best I have ever had. Traditional Tuscan food at its best. The wine selection is extremely comprehensive, much helped by Britta and her recommendations. It was a... More

Unbelievable. Our B&B recommended this spot. We tried all week to eat here and it was either not open by 7 pm or actually closed on a Thursday night. We finally found it open on our last night. When we arrived at 8:00 pm Britta was​ so rude, telling us we had to be gone by 9:30 pm because we... More

Based on a recommendation from the owners of the hotel we were staying in we visited this restaurant in Siena. They were very busy but Britta gave us a table in the front room.

Great Pappardelle with the Boar. The service is nice and friendly, welcoming to Americans. The atmosphere is intimate but still relaxed.

First of all, the service was great. Britta, the owner was really friendly and helpful with suggestions from the menu. For the food, I chose the truffles to start. They were delicious.
