“Simply outstanding”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

We have a home in the area and have been coming to the region for 30 years. This is a restaurant that we know well. This is the best chianina fiorentina (Tuscan beef T-bone) that I know. The wine selection is top rate, and prices reasonable.

It is a special place.

“WOW”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

Although we stayed in a village 12km away from Montefollonico, we had dinner here twice and lunch as well.
The food was just delicious and prepared with so much love and the freshest local ingredients only. The cook is open for special wishes and adaptations of the menu. Don't forget to check out the daily specials, as they might contain fresh tagliatelle with truffle sauce!
The terrace is very cozy and located on a small piazza in the center of the beautiful village, but also the dining room inside is nice and authentic with terra-cotta aches and tons of wines to chose from.
Don't forget to make reservations!

“A disappointing meal in a restaurant we have come to trust & to which we have often taken guests as we did on this occasion.”
Reviewed 14 August 2013 via mobile

We were deeply disappointed with this dinner. None of the food chosen from the August menu lived up to expectations but the stuffed melanzane was particularly disappointing. Worst of all was the cavalier attitude of the cook who came to our table offering a replacement melanzane & saying "We could be here all evening but it won't be better cooked". Actually the melanzane had not cooked at all & sat cold & hard under its stuffing. The savoury cheesecake replacement for the second unsuccessful attempt at the melanzane was bland.
Had the padrone enquired about our meal we would have told him all of this. So, more in sorrow than in anger we have to give a negative review to what has been for quite a few years a favourite of ours.

“Nice little wine bar”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

Good choice of lunchtime dishes - chicken livers were especially good.

Pleased that they had a good selection of Italian beers - at a price
