This restaurant is located directly behind Palazzo Pubblico, on piazza del Mercato. In warm weather, you can sit outside and enjoy the wonderful Tuscan dishes they serve. The food is excellent -- I went there for dinner and for lunch two days in a row -- and the prices are very reasonable. Highly recommended!

Went here on the advice of our hotel and had a great meal. We liked our server, who offered excellent suggestions for wine and food. Entrees were good as were the wine and dessert.

Service is a little erratic and at times a little cocky, but the food was excellent. Local specialities and good quality. Service was in no way bad enough to detract from the dining experience -- just wasn't sincere.
