We had an incredible dinner at this simple trattoria after a long hike on a recent Friday afternoon. What a delight. The steak Florentine was cooked rare (be sure to specify). The waitress expertly deboned and served it. We shared a pasta dish that I will never forget-hot pasta tossed with a
Olive oil, garlic, and peppers-simple but perfect. An unlabeled bottle of the house wine was placed on our table, so that we may serve ourselves. Our waitress was helpful and charming.

This wonderful place was recommended by GIROSOLE, our hiking guides. We had the most amazing pasta with olive oil, garlic and hot peppers, followed by an incredible steak florentine. The large tbone came sizzling to the table with four different kinds of salt, olive oil and pepper so we could spice it as we wished. The meat was so good it did not need much! The waitress was very kind and helpful. The house wine was excellent. I am still thinking of this meal two weeks later!

We are two vegetarians who arrived here on a rainy Sunday night desperate for a dinner---and found a surprisingly delicious home-cooked meal, one of our best in Tuscany. (We had been planning to go the town dinner that night, but the menu was rabbit, boar, pigs' cheeks, guinea hen, organ meats, etc., not for us!) Thankfully Mario (one of the few ristorantes open that night) took us in without a reservation. The family running it are wonderful---the younger members speak English well so ordering is easy, and the older ones are charming and appreciate it if you try to speak some Italian. Great bruschetta, homemade pasta with funghi in season, and incredible panna cotta with berries for dessert! Good house wines. Thanks Mario!

Was surprised to find little "garden" at back of restaurant. Lovely unpretentious setting. Great pasta. Would definitely go back.
