This restaurant is about 6km outside of Greve on the road to Valdarno, but it is worth the trip. The owner, Stefano, waits tables and runs the restaurant while his wife, Patrizia, presides over the kitchen. The food here is very good and priced appropriately. The wine list is pretty extensive and is also reasonably priced. I highly recommend the... More

Located on the ridge between Figline and Greve we, luckily, happened upon the wonderful place. Stefano is a most gracious host and his wife, Patricia, is an amazing chef. The menu has most everything you want on an Italian menu and is first rate. Stefano has a good wine list but his house red is probably the best buy in... More

Top-notch dining experience in this amazing Tuscan restaurant! Food was awesome and the hospitality shown by the owner, Stefano and his wife was icing on the cake! I can't wait to go back for another visit! It is well worth the drive to this remote place.

My in-laws ate here a year and raved about this place every time they had the chance. So we took them up on their offer to go back and have lunch together and it turned out to be one of the best meals in a while. We had 2 Fiorentina steaks, grilled and fried porcini (the most delicious thing I've... More

Had dinner here on the terrace with a group of friends (10 people in all) - friendly waitress and all dishes were excellent, pasta as well as meat dishes (tagliata di manzo). Nice wine selection with a strong emphasis on local wines. Did not have dessert but everyone who did was very enthusiastic about the tiramisu. Would eat here again... More

We were 10 people with 6 teenagers and went to the restaurant without booking in advance. The waiter (and owner?) were in control but a little frustrated over our kids...happens for us as well. On the other hand the food were well prepared, great local specialities and food wise a great experience close to 5 stars. In total there were... More

Lovely food and friendly staff. Just be warned when ordering the steak that it comes less cooked than in England (so a Medium steak is more like rare!).

Never have I disagreed so thoroughly with the general level of Tripadvisor reports...this place must be deteriorating fast. We ( a group of four friends) called in to look at it several days ago with a view to reserving later in the week. Our initial impression was not favourable (empty, inhospitable, very tacky menu in a worn plastic cover by... More
