Lovely setting, friendly service but did not like the laminated menus and the unremarkable food. All main course dishes were meat based which caused a problem for me as a non meat eater and meant that I had very little choice.
We were looked after very well but would not return.

We discovered this exceptional place as we were just walking around the village. I have to say that the food is just divine, most of the ingredients are fresh from the garden, evrything is just so tasty, don't forget to try the olive oil, it was so good that we also bought a couple of bottles to bring home. The view from the terrace is fantastic. They also have a very good wine selection. Very good and friendly service, we will go back soon.

Really enjoyed the setting, sitting outside on a sunny day was magic.

The food however was average. My wild boar pasta was lacklustre compared to the wonderful pasta's we've had elsewhere in Tuscany. My steak was chewy, over cooked. The grilled chicken had been burnt and had a bitter taste. Food wasn't terrible just should have been better.

Service is slow but that wasn't a problem on such a nice day.

Wine list is great, and the cook/waiter gave has a great recommendation of Il Fonti Chianti (so much so we are planning a trip to the winery).

Overall food disappointing and quite expense. Better places to eat but worth a trip on a beautiful sunny day.

We came here on the strength of recommendations of our hosts and were not disappointed! We had a leisurely dining experience, made even more memorable by the gracious staff, each of whom treated us like family. The food was typical Tuscan cuisine, very fresh, elegantly prepared, and presented with care. Paola recommended a wonderful local chianti and could not have been more helpful. The setting is beautiful, with fantastic views over the hills where we saw the sun go down. We left more than happy, and hoping that we will have a chance to return. An excellent value, and a special place worth taking the time to find.
