“not a good experience”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

This was a restaurant we had wanted to try, as it is along the main street (via Novembre) of our little town in San Casciano in Val de Pesa where we were staying a month. They seemed happy to see us initially, yet when we inquired about the open table in the front outside along the street, he offered the garden in the back. It was essentially empty but a table of 4 Americans. It was buggy and undesirable. It seemed that being American and (possibly) having our middle-school aged sons may have had something to do with our placement. Feeling displaced and unwelcomed, we decided to leave before ordering. As we left, they offered the table out front - which we kindly declined.

“Extraordinary service”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

We went to this restaurant after getting a very bad treat from another restaurant.Joseph met us with a very nice smile in his face and arranged a big table for 12 people even at their off time.He first brought their wine list and then gave a brief explanation about the local food and what they had on that day.Every dish he brought was very delicious and his eagerness to help the people was unbelievable.I recommend this restaurant to everybody without any hesitation.

“Average”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

I went here with my family over the Christmas holiday as we were visiting San Casciano, which is nearby to our home. The location is warm and pleasantly decorated, which was fine. The menu was a bit limited in terms of variety. The quality of food was middle of the road for Tuscany in our opinion, and we live here. A bit expensive comparatively. The service was fine. Very friendly to our 2 children. I doubt if we would ever come back. We had a fine experience, but just middle of the road to be honest. So, there are probably better options out there, I regret to say.

“Best choice for tasting the local cuisine”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

If you want to taste real authentic Tuscany food served by local chefs then this is the place to be. Charming atmosphere, stunning food and friendly service. Be aware that the local cuisine here entails no fish dishes...
