We went here because of the good reviews on tripadvisor. Well it was as good as they said! We had bruscetta for starter and then the ravioli and the pasta alla vongole and both were delicious. Really italian quality!

I spent several guilty hours, soaking up the stylish jazz-cool atmosphere, after overeating their outstanding, but authentic, Sienese food and wine. Don't forget to sample their delicious homemade Balsamic vinegar. Just lovely.

I went with my boyfriend. He had the steak and I had the swordfish. Both dishes were fantastic. Easily one of the best meals we had in Italy. Also, the tiramisu was one of the best we have ever had. Waitress was really friendly, nice decor and overall great experience.

Away from the main tourist drag we had this restaurant recommended to us by our hostess. Wonderful little find! Small intimate setting with both indoor and outdoor dining spaces and friendly staff who generously explained menu terms we were unfamiliar with. I had the squid ink seafood pasta (watch out for the black sauce as it stains!) and ricotta mouse... More

Two wonderful meals were eaten here -- so good we went back the following night! The service was outstanding we felt as if we had been eating here all our lives, nothing was too much. The menu was small and everything was freshly cooked for us, on our first night there we tasted wonderful swordfish that words can't describe. The... More

This was my second informal business dinner here. It did not disappoint. I got a wonderful warm welcome, Italian style, as did our party. They immediately made us feel welcomed and then escorted us to a private room so that we could be as loud or quiet as we wanted. We did not reserve a private room however asked if... More
