In terms of restaurant, i guess when someone use "touristic" this should not have the best meaning. The food is actually not bad, but I loved and traveled italy a lot, and pretend to have a "feeling" for their food The place is amazing, in the center of Vinci, landscape is just perfect.

Visited for lunch as a family group made up of 4 adults and 3 young children. Typical local Tuscan menu with plenty of choice for everyone, including the children. Run by a husband and wife team who were attentive without being fussy. The restaurant includes a small terrace with views over the neighbouring valley. It is right by the Leonardo... More

The steak was thin as a smoking sheet, overcooked, completely dry. I couldn't eat it, and asked the owner to remove it. She was kindly enough not to make me pay for it, but she felt insulted when I complained about something that shouldn't even make the table of a client... The fried vegetables were oversoaked in white vinegar, therefore... More

Nice little ristorante in the city centre of Vinci. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Prosciutto&melone and bruschetta from the antipasti are both delicious. Their pasta all'arrabiata is also very tasty! Would certainly recommend this place! Both for lunch and dinner it is perfect.

After a trip to the museum, come down to the street around the town and visit this little restaurant. Food, atmosphere and price are all great. Big portions and great taste.

We - five friends from Germany - went here three times during our stay in Vinci. We just loved the simple but excellent dishes, whatever we chose, every dish was extremely delicious - if you ever come to Vinci you shouldn't miss it!!!

Over the last few years we have visited this restaurant on many occasions and have always found the food to be superb and a great level of service considering there is only the chef and a waitress who is his wife!I'd definitely recommend the rissoles with the pink sauce every time even if you're not a vegetarian!
