Went there for dinner last night. The food, cooked by mama Elda, was beautiful: the grand antipasto platter to share followed by the Wild Boar for me and the Sea Bass for my wife. Chose the Tira Misu and Creme Brulee for dessert.

The service was excellent and unfaultable from the staff and papa Pier was the prefect 'mine host' to all his guests, serenading each and all of us and getting to know everyone personally.

The restaurant has bags of charm, the outside tables are located under the arches that form a covered viccolo (street), the inside tables are set in a lovely locally themed restaurant. If you manage to get a take near one of the windows then the view across the Tuscan hills is amazing!

We visited this restaurant for lunch after reading the great reviews. It seems that we didn't have quite the same experience as the other writers.
Having asked the day before if we could book a table for 2pm, we were told that was too late and could we come at 130pm instead. Happy to do so, we arrived promptly and then waited for half an hour before we were asked if we would like a drink. The set menu is great value and the food was good for the price - beware of the lack of prices for house wine. We were charged 6 euros for a really small glass of house which is on the hefty side for the area and 4 euros for a tiny can of sprite.
It is true that the owner is jolly and had our two girls mesmorised but the rest of the staff were surly and short tempered.
In short, it is obviously a good restaurant but we felt a little cheated when we left.

Stopped here on a wet afternoon and had a really nice long lunch. The food was great and reasonably priced and there was an excellent wine list with some good value local wines. Atmosphere was very good and the staff attentive and efficient.

Braised wild-boar stew with polenta and a few bottles of local red.
Bang-on in every way. Top-drawer food, great views off the town walls, subtle wine and a hilarious manager who kept us entertained all night.
I couldn't recommend it more
