This small, family-run restaurant is just outside of the hill town on Montaoine in Tuscany. The service and atmophere are suberb, with many local dishes such as parpardelle with boar ragu, fettucene with cheese and mushroon, and grilled rabbit available. The house wine by the pitcher is wonderful -- don't waste your money on a bottle. Make a reservation, as it fills up quickly. Yes, it caters to tourists but is wonderful. Get a seat in the open air tented area with a view of valley below.

Well frequented by locals however meals were loosely described "stuffed"...was with a hard boiled egg...bad luck if allergic to egg. Vegatables over "baked" but were pan fried.House wine "cheap" Rate 5 out of 10

We tried Il Caminetto for dinner on recommendation from our hosts at the Santa Maria residencies. Overall the food and service was very good. We were shown to a table on the left hand side of the dining room and this proved to be very warm, but this was resolved by opening one of the windows. We both chose steaks from the menu and they were wonderful. We shared the chef's chocolate cake and it was also good. The service was very friendly and was reasonably quick too, certainly by Italian standards. I'd put Il Caminetto behind the Casa Masi.
