Amazing, just amazing...

Definitely a great restaurant! I've been eating here a couple of times and both I've been really satisfied of the quality of the food - my colleagues also appreciated. The waiter has been kind and helpful for translating all the menu to the foreigners and to explain recipes and preparation of the various dishes. Portions have been quite abundant, therefore...

Very good quality food and wine at a very reasonable price. The menu changes often and the owner will explain it to you. They have a large selection of food and they are very flexible to meet your request. This is definitely my favorite restaurant in Piombino. It has been for years and has never disappointed me.

We did not let that deter us and just decided to let the waiter recommend things and surprise us. The communication went well with the help of... More

Very informal in a back street of the historic centre. Chosen by the locals for a delicious selection of food & wine and the cool service. It's a perfect choice to get away from the crowd to enjoy a succulent meal at convenient prices.
