“Good Food, Interesting setting and friendly staff”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

This probably would have been better without 3 children in tow but the staff were very child friendly and although the kids thought it smelled funny (which it did, we were in a cave and it smelled like it!), they enjoyed the food but more importantly making shadow puppets on the walls by our table.

The food was really good, my son has a risotto with zuccini and pecorino cheese which was yummy. Our two girls had a special request of spaghetti bolognese which not on the menu but offered anyway and we had the full works plus and amazing bottle of chianti. It cost us €157 including tax.

At the end of our meal the owner ordered us a taxi.

Although it is not a place really for children as there is nowhere for them to stretch their legs or have a run around. It is more romantic or for friends/business. That said they made us feel welcome, accommodated well and we really enjoyed it.

“EXCELLENT FOOD”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

The food is well prepared and presented without being pretentious. When booking make sure you do not get a table on the lowest floor as this is a cellar which is cold and a bit damp.

“Could do better”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

Went here on a recommendation from the hotel. The starters were excellent. The mains were not. The truffle steak had not been left to rest for long enough. The lamb was too small. Desert was good. The wine selection has excellent.

“Excellent Tuscan food”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

The restaurant don't look impressive from outside, but is actually made in the rock and goes down inside with several levels. Nice authentic look and feel. Waiter was good and we got 3 courses, wine and coffee. Absolutely good food that was presented very well on the plates and looked good. The taste was ekstraordinary and the raw ingredients was good. All in all our best recommendations.
