Great Tuscan food

Very nice restaurant with very good Tuscan food. Went for lunch, quite busy but good service and very friendly. The kids wanted pizza but we were told that is in the evening only. They very kindly made a special pasta dish up for my daughter with lots of mozzarella cheese which was very good. The... read more

Genuine Italian food with white cloths even at lunchtime and local workers sitting next to you and also enjoying a 100 minute lunch. Everything is tasty but settle for 1,5 course instead of the normal 3-4, if you want to be able to have dinner. The complimentary bottle of limoncello finishes of the meal.

average service, noisy banging door and hurried service. Right on a road, which is fine, but the passing (frequent) motorbikes are quite intrusive. Constantly barking dog in house opposite. OK, but wouldn’t return.

Authentic Italian food served with a smile. A delightful, small and cozy restaurant in Lama.....a truly quaint little town.

This is the second time we've been in two years and the quality and quantity are still as good. Place.is full of locals. The food is amazing and the portions are generous, even as first plates. And the prices are also great. We had a Fesa (beef cuts medium rare), Capelle Michelangelo (melted cheese withe truffle and porcini shavings), spaghetti... More

Had the best steak ever here. Cooked perfectly and so tender. Only problem is that there was actually too much food so we took it home in a doggy bag and had steak baguettes for lunch the next day. Restaurant unassuming in appearance but service with a smule and wonderful food.

We usually visit this wonderful restaurant for evening meals and to celebrate special occasions however we were fortunate enough to sample a lunch menu the other day and it was fantastic and extremely economical. The food is superb and always served with a smile.

This was a great restaurant, near our accommodation, which was a no frills, great food and wine experience. As always we chose to test the house wine - a fine local red served in ceramic jugs. They had english menus, which really helped us non-locals, but on Saturday night we really got the feeling that people from the villages all... More
