All-round excellent experience, traditional style decor with great atmosphere and ambience. Strong wine list (we loved the 2012 brancaia) and menu, nicely laid out in Italian, English and French with plenty to choose from for each course. After 2 weeks in Tuscany we were a bit salumi and prosciutto'd out so went for pasta starters and meaty mains, which ended... More

It was delicious! We shared our dishes, and we liked everything we got. We especially liked the Truffle Platter. It was great. I would strongly suggest ordering it. It was a nice restaurant, with good service. They were closing their kitchen in 5 minutes, but they still let us eat there and were perfectly attentive.

We ate here at the recommendation of our hotel. Reservations are needed as this place fills up quickly every night. The wait staff were very friendly and provided excellent service. The menu is in Italian and English. The wine list is extensive. All the food was amazing - pappardelle al chinghale (wild boar sauce); braised beef al chianti, guinea hen;... More

We arrived just after 7 pm without reservations and we're seated right away. But by 8 pm people were waiting to be seated. Between the four of us we had wild boar, braised beef, filet of beef and lamb chops. No one was disappointed with their meal. I can see why this is highly recommended. At the same point we... More

Such a cozy litlle restaurant with good and typical tuscan food. Beef tenderloin was incredibly delicate, the antipasti platter huge and delicious and the pici very good, too. Truffle antipasti and caprese highly recommended, too. Prices are incredibly low regarding quality, we were positively surprised after each invoice. Be sure to make a reservation as it is always full there.... More

Luckily we were recommended to go to this restaurant from a local. Make sure you make a reservation, as it does fill up. We ordered the risotto, eggplant parmesan, gnocchi, and the eggplant truffle ravioli. Every dish was delicious, and made we fresh ingredients!! The eggplant parmesan and eggplant truffle ravioli were definitely one of the best things I've tasted... More
