Pistoia is not a tourist town and this small trattoria caters mostly to locals - no menu in English and the young waitress and other staff did not speak English either so it helps to at least have a food/menu understanding of Italian. We had a wonderful antipasti that was a "timble" - custard-like consistency that appeared to be similar to pesto but was actually pureed zucchini with small shrimp. The two fish courses were good but not memorable. A bottle of white wine and still (read tap) water brought the tab with coperto to €64 - a bit steep for the location and food in my opinion.

The food was okey, but we missed the passion you'll find in many other trattorias in Tuscany. Uninspired service, although the location and atmosphere are good. We didn't regret our visit, but won't come back.

Maybe we were not lucky with the service, but we were disappointed in this area. The food is good and the house-wine fine. There were no extra charmes as you might like on a holiday destination.

We took a chance on this place after discovering that the highly rated Il Pollo doesn't open at lunchtimes and were not disappointed. We had spaghetti alla pomodore, chicken with truffles and olives, pork with pecorino sauce and a desert, together with half a litre of very decent house wine and a couple of coffees for less than 60 euros. All the food was tasty and well presented. My only criticism is that the service was a little disorganised.

Really good authentic Italian restaurant, we had a fantastic lunch. Cheese & pear ravioli followed by caramel panna cotta, the owner came by when we were having dessert and gave us both a complimentary dessert wine which was a nice touch - recommended.
