“A great meal at great price!!”
Reviewed 20 February 2013

Took some friends and we ate so much and so good for just 100 euros with four people. I have to say we followed the advise of our waiter. Franco the owner came by and really had a great talk with him. I had the best Pasta with fish ragu, and then some great Melanzane alla Parmigiana. They served me coffee with great small pastry!! The wine suggested from the staff was good without spending a fortune.
Just 20 min from the center takes you in some of the best scenery roads of the Chianti.
In the summer you get the nice terrace outside
Inside is a little 70's style so don't expect fancy interior..... just enjoy the good food!!

“Nice little restaurant”
Reviewed 27 October 2012 via mobile

We found this restaurant as recommended in tripadvisor and we can confirm everything people were saying.
The first dishes were excellent (homemade pasta). Chiant clasico they serve also very good. We ate beef stew and it was flawless - very tender meat spiced just right. The only small thing is a relatively limited choice of side dishes but that is something we found all over Toscany.

“The best of all restaurants we ate at over 2 weeks in Italy.”
Reviewed 11 August 2012

Fantastic food, great prices and we had a wonderful waiter. There is nothing more to say, except if you are in the area, this is the best place to eat.

“Best food in Italy!”
Reviewed 7 May 2012

This was the best restaurant we ate in, in Italy. The food and the atmosphere were fabulous. We had a great antipasto platter we shared and had fiorentina steak. The house wine was excellent too. Try the fiorentina steak because you'll never find such a delicious steak anywhere else! Dinner was 30 euros a head, which was a good surprise as well. Highly recommend this to everyone. The place is only a 20 minute drive from Florence city center, a car with a GPS is recommended - not sure how much a taxi would charge for the ride.

“Loverly restaurant in a beautiful area”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

Wow, what a great night with even better food! The wine is ofcourse the best, and the polpette are to die for.
I would recommend this restaurant to everyone that wants to eat great food and drink the best wine. The waiters was very funny too, offering us a lot of entertainment.
