We were so glad to be recommended to this restaurant. We sought it out because we were looking for a seafood restaurant - it's a large restaurant with an extensive menu which is about 50% seafood. The food was excellent, and plenty of it - particularly recommended, the Seafood Mixed Grill (Grillata Mista di Pesce?).

But it was the atmosphere and character of the restaurant that made it stand out. Poggibonsi is on the edge of Chianti, but it's not a tourist town - on our two visits, almost all the other customers were locals, mostly in family groups. And a resto that depends on local trade has to be good so people keep returning! No English menu - some of the staff speak some English, but Restaurant Italian is definitely useful.

We went for Sunday Lunch - we were surrounded by five huge family parties, some there for "First Communion" celebrations. A very happy and enjoyable occasion - it was great to see so many people having a good time. And despite the numbers to be served, our service was excellent.

Oh - and don't wait to be brought the bill, everyone goes to the "Cassa" to pay. It's how they do it.

It's probably not the place for a quiet romantic meal for two - but if you want to eat (particularly seafood) well, at a reasonable price, in a vibrant atmosphere, you can't do better!

We're on holiday and through the zones of the Val D'Elsa, we found by chance in a place where there were many cars. Curious about the excessive amount of machines we decided to stop. I got out of the car we met people and asked what it was. People have said it was a delicious seafood restaurant. In the end we decided to go in and ask the staff very friendly invited us to sit down. We decided the dishes and they arrived very quickly and were delicious. Excellent quality, professionalism and excellent!
low price over quality! I love this restaurant!
If you already back in Italy I will know where to go for sure. Recommend it to all my friends and acquaintances if they decide to take a vacation.
