“Art and Food: Some hits, some misses”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Alle Murate offers a unique opportunity to dine in a 14th century palace with original frescoes. Meals start with Prosecco and a brief historical overview of the site. The menu is modern Italian with unique, tasty dishes and a few duds. Our server suggested an excellent and reasonably priced red Tuscan wine. Mixed reviews within our party of four about the food with one strong complaint from my wife about cold pasta. The restaurant is expensive (300 Euros for four people). Go to see the palace and hope the chef and servers coordinate food delivery to the table. Clearly worthy of another chance.

Place with frescos and great food. Very friendly and discreet service. The food respects the food but with a modern twist. Highly recommended.

“Fantastic dinner, great atmosphere”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

We had dinner at this great restaurant across the street from our hotel the other night. It was recommended by our tour guide as a restaurant locals eat. We did the chef's menu, where the six courses were selected by the chef and we were not told in advance what they would be. The atmosphere and service were top-notch. Five out of the six courses were fantastic, while one of the six courses was just so-so (the fish course). Also, my wife had done a wine-pairing but she received no pairing for the meat course, which seemed odd. Otherwise, the food was truly fantastic, would recommend. Very pricey.

“Great”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

The food and Atmosphere here is special, especially on the first night, thanks to the very informative and helpful waitress Beata,
The second night was good also, albeit for the head waitress who was is an Italian lady with glasses, telling my Girlfriend Poppy a blatant lie about the Parmesan cheese already being on the plate under the pasta, which of course it wasn't....?!?!
Other than that, every other member of staff were just Great.
And the cheesecake pudding is quite simply the best.

“Good overpriced food”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

This is the high class fancy italian food. The service was PERFECT, and this is what you will pay for. Very expensive and the food was not better than other local restaurants we have tried. You will really pay for the high class service, but it is a must try at least once.
