An Italian food critic recommended this restaurant to us a couple of years ago and we have eaten there several times. The view is breathtaking and we always enjoy the food. We went recently with some Italian friends and we enjoyed the risotto with courgette flowers and the peposo which is typical Tuscan meat dish. They have a good selection of locally produced wines. The staff were attentive and helpful and we enjoyed the evening overall.

I ate at this restaurant three times during a recent visit. The food was outstanding. View is beautiful and the staff was always very friendly. Standouts include...the burrata, gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce and the eggplant "Violetta". I would highly recommend!

We had a lovely evening here, the most amazing views & sunset. Everything we ate was excellent, & were looked after very well. But the desserts were incredible, we had two selection plates with a sample of all of their desserts, truly the best ever!

Great find in the Tuscan countryside. Dined with a group that just wanted to sample all the hors-d’oeuvres along with the local wines. Enjoyed great service as we sat outside taking in a great view along with great food and service. Just perfect!

As always, the light interior and splendid view welcomed us to C'era una volta. One will already now that the experience will be fabulous when they are surrounded by such beauty. The typical antipasto to order will be the 'misto fritto' which is a heavy but mouth watering choice. The combinations are typically Tuscan, such as fried zucchini flowers and stuffed artichoke (delicious).There is no wrong choice with choosing from this menu, everything is delicious and truly Tuscan. The atmosphere is warm and friendly, i would say that the combination of food, people and also the house wine, leave the customer with a definite happy feeling.
