“Fantastic Find in Tuscany”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

I agree completely with the last reviewer. This was our best meal in Italy, including first-rate restaurants in Rome. We were probably the only non-– locals dining on a busy Saturday night. Everyone was dining on the large patio overlooking the Tuscan countryside. Every dish we had was outstanding, and the prices were ridiculously low. The house jug wine was as good as any Brunello (and, come to think of it, probably was a Brunello). Everything on the antipasto platter was perfect. We had the pici scottiglia, thick spaghetti with a sort of meat stew sauce, and the boiled beef with mixed vegetables; both were excellent. For dessert, we had Ricotta with fresh fruit and honey – I'm not sure what the name of it was, but it was delicious. The staff could not have been nicer, despite a slight language barrier. We were made to feel totally welcome. If you are in the Montalcino area, you would do well to dine here.

“Beautiful and Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2012

The only other English review of this restaurant is completely WRONG! Either this person never really ate here or they have no taste. Our hotel recommended this place for dinner and everything was sublime from the antipasto to the tasting menu. Very nice wine selections, excellent service and beautiful atmosphere outside in the courtyard. Not to mention the adorable little town palazzo it is located in. A must visit if you are in the area.

“Beautiful view, average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2012 via mobile

The setting for this restaurant is breathtaking, however the food is very average. They were out of our first three choices for wine and the food was simply not outstanding. I wish that the review could be better, but after driving quite a distance, this was not a recommendation I would make.
