“Great food and excellent service”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

We visited this lovely, family-owned restaurant for lunch. They couldn't have been more accommodating - on arrival extra seat cushions were provided for our 20 month old twins so they could sit at the table with us. We opted for the Tuscan tasting menu and every course was excellent. The children shared a huge homemade ravioli and then helped us polish off our Tiramisu! We enjoyed a long relaxing lunch which is not usually that easy with two small children!

“Is it possible that the inside would be better than the outside?”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

We sat on the upstairs terrace on a very mild night in Colle Di Val D'Elsa. Normally that would insure a relaxed evening, but the restaurant was literally staffed by one gentleman, either the maître d or owner, in a tuxedo, who deftly managed 5 or 6 tables tables. Apparently two staffers were out with health issues. I think he did not want other patrons, and a few folks came up and either left or were dissuaded, so the place was a bit empty. We were nervous but he did keep us moving along. I personally found the food to be very good but others in my group felt it was merely good. The asparagus flan was savory and complemented by a quail egg. The duck carpaccio was devoured along with a berry gelatin in the center. The sliced steak was done truly medium rare, which is hard to find in Tuscany. My mother in law requested pigeon, in chocolate sauce, but they had run out, so she was offered steak with the chocolate sauce (think mole sauce). One steak ordered medium, for a child, was presented rare, and the server brought back a completely new filet cooked properly. The desserts were a customary chocolate tart and a sweet mille foglia. The restaurant has a very interesting and historical interior and it would almost be better to eat inside, in my opinion. The terrace has a view of a desultory Italian street that is not inspiring despite the summer breeze. It is a very large restaurant and the lower levels are quite cool due to the running stream, would be very comfortable for an historic atmosphere, dinner party. All menus in English, better than average wine list, very clean restroom.

“Wonderful food and very pleasant service”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

This is a great restaurant not far from Monteriggiano. We had a steak with beans and roast potatoes and it was excellent. The desert was a hazelnut mouse that was semifreddo and it too was excellent. The service was both professional and friendly. We will return. Be sure and check out the mill downstairs.

“Great place at the end of the day to relax and enjoy some good food”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

Great place. Good service and atmosphere to enjoy some quality Tuscan food. The lamb cutlets were superb and the local wine ended the day nicely. Would visit it again if we ever came back

“An amazing restaurant”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

Spending our holidays in Tuscany in a romantic farm not far, we walked in for mother day
Absolute charming old mill restaurant. The waiter is part of the furniture, very nice. The meal, perfect. They have the best gelatos I ever ate. You think you eat a mousse of chocolat, but it is a chocolate ice. The price is not cheap, but you have best Tuscany kitchen with excellent wines !
Travelling all over the world and quite a fine gourmet, you can trust my opinion !
