Great restaurant to eat after the concert. Great food and great service. A tourist area, but after all that is what we are.

This place was recommended by a local as the best in town. For starters I had the risotto with a red wine reduction. My companion had a salmon salad. Both were pretty good. I next had the roast lamb which was quite good but the tomato and bread soup was only warm which was a disappointment on a cool night.... More

This restaurant is just steps away from the Puccini Opera Recital. Formal atmosphere inside in a pretty, old fashioned setting.

Stopped by for lunch following trip advisors reviews. Wow! The food was stunning, nothing too fancy but every course had fabulous flavours. The antipasti of a pastry with creamed leeks and ricotta was a revelation, similar to an upside down quiche but with a much richer flavour. Next course (shared with the other half) was a Parmesan risotto with a... More

We had lunch here and received good service. I had the sea bass and it was done perfectly and was delicious. You will need reservations. Would be a nice prior to going to the Puccini concerts that are put on in the church nearby. They have a discount program with the concert so you might want to into that.

Expected a great deal from this restaurant as all the indications were for a very good evening with food that had been highly praised by many. The food we did have was very good, the steak was perfectly cooked ( for me) . It was the "welcome" that we did not enjoy. Maybe it is the Italian way to be... More

We booked well in advance for a Friday night sitting outside. The waiters were attentive, the wine list extensive and the food was simply delicious.

We were remiss in not booking so did not dine outside across from the Puccini Museum. The service and wines were good as were my veal cheeks. The truffled pasta had plenty of truffle (slices even) but muted flavour. Quality rather than quantity would be better.

It was our last dinner of the holiday. We sat outside. The dinner was really good. Service could have been better, owner/manager walking around asking people if they want bills to obviously turn tables. Thought it was unappropriate for a pricey dinner. The carrot/nut ice cream desert was very good!!!

Dear Girodot, Thank you for your comment. We are sorry to hear that you had the impression that the manager was trying to 'turn tables'. I can assure you that no one has ever asked anybody for the bill, you might have mistook this behaviour which, certainly, was just a way of making sure that everybody was satisfied with their...
