My wife and I were recommended to go there from our B&B and it turned out to be a great experience. We liked it enough to go back there. The truffle pasta was amazing.

First of all, the restaurant is very week located in gaiole del chianti downtown and not on the hills (i love the hills but I prefer to park the car and avoid moving it for a couple of days. The guys are very warm and you feel at home. If the weather is good yoa can eat outside in a beautiful garden. The meat is aleays good. Try the cinta senese, a pork meat tipycal from the region, you cant miss it. Very honest price.

We wanted to eat near our B & B and had a nice dinner. The service was friendly and quick but to our tasting the pasta was too salty and the meal average, not on top of the list.

We were staying in a nice hotel nearby and drove past this place on the way in and out of town a few times. There was usually a decent crowd, so we assumed it was fairly good. Perhaps the crowd was down to it being one of only two places in town that are open past 7pm.

Although the food itself was half-decent, the service left a lot to be desired. Even allowing for the fact that we had gotten used to the "5 minutes more or less" attitude over the previous week, the lengthy delays between wait staff visits became quite annoying. It took a full twenty minutes after sitting down for someone to come over and take an order. After that it was a case of enduring ever-increasing time gaps. My wife and I debated dessert, but a full half hour after clearing our entree plates, nobody had come by to even ask if we were interested. It's a good thing we had a lot to talk about!

Don't waste your time! There are many other, better options in the area.

Good food and staff - my family and I were at a wedding the day before and this was ideal for the guests to get together over a table d'hote dinner - all 80 of us were impressed with the quality and presentation of the food and will certainly return.
