This place, facing the old food market, has a pleasant atmosphere and the service was efficient and friendly. I suspect that normally the food is as good. But on this occasion I have to say that the wild boar ragu with pasta was sub standard. The meat was tough and contained several inedible lumps of gristle. Two of our party ordered the same dish and had the same experience, so it wasn't a one off. Having said that, the ribolita was good, as was the penne al pomodoro.
Other reviews are probably more representative of the norm, however we are not overly fussy diners and it's hard to understand how lumps of gristle can end up being served to a paying customer in a well-run restaurant.
The wine also is expensive, as there did not appear to be any well-priced vino della casa.

We had the pleasure of a cooking class with Gennaro and Vivienne at this lovely restaurant. We had a great time cooking and then eating our meal! The restaurant itself is gorgeous and location across from the market is great. Gennaro's passion for Tuscan cooking is obvious. Here's hoping for great success for this new restaurant!
