“A Tuscan feast of the highest quality”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

One of the best ways to describe this Osteria is it simply ticks the boxes of everything you would expect from the romantic ideologies of eating in Tuscany. The Osteria is typically rustic, the staff are typically warm and engaging and the surrounding views are typically stunning. The food itself was exceptional with course after course of mouth watering delights to go perfectly with the recommended wine (Tuscany is much more than Chianti). One point to note is the meat will come to you rare as that's how it's meant to be served so if you're someone who prefers to ruin their meat I suggest you make this clear from the beginning! The place is small so be sure to book in high season but this is an experience that's so worthwhile you'll not mind that little inconvenience.

“The best for Tuscany Food”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

This is the best restaurant for Tuscany food. Everything is good from the Home made pasta ( try the Ravioli with meat out of the word ) The other tuscany speciality are incredible from the wild boar, to the fresh vegetables eveything is coming from the market. The Chef Sandra in the kicthen and Nadia at the grill they make the best. The meat is really good. As waiter Cristiano, that as soon he knows that you are american he start story that has been in US, and is missing that. I don't know if really travel. But anyway is caracter the restaurant could be nothing without him. During Holiday make reservation.

“Can't wait to go back!!!”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

We were lucky enough to find this wonderful family run restaurant in early June 2013. We visited other restaurants while we were in this area of Tuscany with our family but this one was by far the best. From the local wine from a vineyard just outside the village to the melt in the mouth homemade pasta and great service the whole experience was wonderful. We went on two nights and both times we sat outside on the covered terrace as the restaurant was full this only added to the experience as we were able to watch the setting sun over the Tuscan hills and smell the the BBQ where some of the food is cooked. Being from the catering industry ourselves we were eager to try everything antipasti, pasta, tripe( which my 7 and 11 year old loved) ravioli, Barbequed chicken and pigeon on the bone, wild boar, amazing fresh vegetables and roasted potatoes. For dessert pannacotta, milefuille and a chocolate log that my children have spoken about ever since. On the last visit my 7 year old cried as we left he thought he would never go back to that restaurant again. We have just booked to go back to the same area of Tuscany again in May one of the main reasons is this wonderful restaurant.

“Fantastic experience!”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 via mobile

Reserved in advance, and it was totally worth it! Honnest and fresh food prepared with love by a passionate family. Not only the meat was fab, the pasta and even the tomatos from their own garden tasted divine.
although we had the meal last year, I still remember how lovely it was.
Best Italian diner i've ever had!!!
