“incredible roadside steaks”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

La sSperanza is just in the middle of nowhere, just opposite petrol station at the road junction without any inhabited areas around. Time has stopped there and Fellini might have filmed the place 50 years ago. Very few dishes on the menu and forget the other but the steaks... ne can see the old fashioned barbecue using the real thick wooden branches through the kitchen window, Steaks are close to perfection. You do not need to take fiorentina - just bistecca is large enough for decent size guy.Not to mention one of cheapest prices in Italy.. Highly recommended as a roadside stop.

“The best meat ever!”
Reviewed 13 December 2013

If you love meat, you should definitely eat here!
Whenever we visit the area, we always want to turn back here to eat meat. Deliciously cooked!
Fast service, great quality of the products, cozy and warm atmosphere. Not a romantic place, but rather a great choice for dinners with friends.
Highly recommended!

“Just average”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

This is interesting in that it is out in the country side and specializes is roasted meats. We were excited about going there because this is something that the Tuscans do well. It was a packed restaurant on the night we ate there and it was a Thursday !! We ordered and with the order came the disappointment. Wow...with all the hype we expected big things. It was just a very average ordinary meal. Not especially reasonably priced, but not expensive either. Simply put it was average. Not up to our "speranza" ( Italian for hope or expectations) Not worth another visit.

“A real treat for steak lovers!”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

This is a great restaurant to visit if you like steak. The place is largely frequented by locals, always a good sign, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We wanted to try the Bistecca Fiorentina and, as they are so big, asked for it to be shared between two of us, which they were quite happy to do - and it was fantastic! There are other steaks and meals available too, and you can see the wood-fired grill as you walk in.
