Description: The bistro of my dreams is the little tiny restaurant; it’s the cute shop where you can go for a coffee or a glass of wine. It’s a place where you can eat the traditional Italian dish, sip a good wine and meet your people. It’s a place where you can chat while eating spaghetti, while learning secrets, sipping a “brunello”, or a grappa while listening to music or reading a book. Where love gets done and undone. And coffee. Where you’re early and it gets late. Here you are in my home. You are my guests and friends among friends. Here is my piano and my guitar, my books, my music; here’s the best recipe my mom gave me, and some biscotti and my grandpa’s Vinsanto wine.

This restaurant is tucked away in a lovely square bustling with locals at night. The restaurant looked nice inside but eating outside was a great experience. In the evening the restaurant offers aperitivo (free snacks) with your drinks which is a good way to start your meal. We opted for pasta as our main meal because the range of pasta... More

Everything was just superb. We got great advisory about wines from the waitress. As well as about the choice of meals. Freindly and direct people working there. You can at once feel welcome like by very good friends.

My husband and I had dinner at this restaurant, after reading tripadvisor reviews. We could say it's a good bistro! The food is good and so is the wine. My husband had papardele with meat sauce and it was delicious. I hada spaghetti with pitu (seafood) and it was just fine (a little tasteless). The service was really slow. But,... More

We were travelling in Italy for 10 days and this was by far the best meal we had. The cacio e pepe (made with an exquisite pici and pear undertones) was heavenly, honestly the best pasta we had in Italy. and we had a lot. Mozzarella starter was also very high quality bufala stuff.

Went for diner there on a late summer evening. The food was delitious and the service friendly, but we kept getting hit on by street bums offering all kinds of stuff at least five times during the dinner.

Off the tourist areas, was nice to be surrounded by Italians enjoying good food and drink. I had the pasta with pear( I know, shouldn't work ) but tasted amazing!! The mozzarella and tomato starter was best I have had, and probably best food I had in my Tuscany trip!!
