Good classical toscan food in this small eating place but very well served with smile and taste. Try the bistecca, the tagliata or the costoletta.... Large pieces of beef are cut here in front of the guests and end in your plate with taste and smell... For lunc, its preferred to reserve. Classical staff with large experience and very helpfull.
