“So good we went twice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2013

Believe the reviews - this place is brilliant. The service is excellent and Camella (the owner) took the time to explain the menu to us. They are obviously very passionate about the food and seasonality. We were given a free glass of Prossec on arrival, which was a really nice touch. All the food was delicious and on our second visit they changed one of the dishes to vegetarian, as I don't eat meat. The service, food and setting was excellent and great value. The coffee mousse dessert was divine and I don't even like coffee desserts!

“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2012

Wandered into here while walking through Grosseto and was pleasantly surprised. The owner explained the entire menu to us and let us mix and match the dishes. Food was excellently prepared and perfectly balanced. Was served complimentary prosecco before the meal and was then recommended a great white wine with our anti pasta then a local red wine that was a great match to our main courses.

Overall a great experience and really felt like part of the family eating here. Will certainly return here when back in the area.

“Yes! Finally!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2012

Finalamente ... there is a superb, creative restaurant in Grosseto!

La Maremma [the region of coastal plain and hills around Grosseto] is charming,
and the food is good, ...
if you like lots of olive oil ....
but the restaurants all have basically the same menu.
[and how much tortelli with butter and sage can one eat?]
(actually also look for spaghetti vongole [clams] and papardelle cinghiale [wild boar],
they are usually quite good)

Which makes this lovely place so welcome:
great design, excellent regional wines,
and cooking that is based on local ingredients,
but taken way beyond the normal fare.

A lot of care was taken to create this place,
and the attentive, warm service is a delight.

The stinco di maiale [pork shank / ham hock] is really tasty,
and the mixed seafood ... I would call it an aquarium ... baked in a glass bowl was exquisite.

Check it out.

What a wonderful place with honest fresh and delicious Italian food in a delightful little restaurant in the old town of Grosetto. Great and attentive service in a great atmosphere. Great recommendation for a perfect dinner.
