Leonardo must have created this place himself because it is PERFECT! We ate here twice in the 3 days we were in the area and each time it was WONDERFUL! Mariella treated us like family and the food was outstanding. If you don't eat here you've missed out on the best food in Vinci!

Do not be put off by the exterior....this is a lovely place with great service and great food. Try and book a balcony table in advance for the view. The menu is good value for money.

This restaurant is very cosy and feels like home. We didn't expect this atmosphere by looking at it from outside. Inside, you go downstairs to a small room with a small, but very cosy, terrace with a nice view and sunset! A friendly couple runs the place. She was very kind and spoke English. It's obvious that they work with... More

Enter from the street go down 2 floors go to the back and sit on the mini terrace (3 tables only0 plenty more inside. Surprising location and nice food served in a warm and friendly way as if you are in the owner's home! Good pasta & antipasti, overall good but not special

This Restaurant is really a hidden jewel. When entering the front door one wouldn't expect such a charming Restaurant, as this is hidden downstairs. There is only a small room filled with tables and a small terrace with 3 tables. However, the athmosphere is great and one gets the feeling to have left the touristic flair or the city outside....

Having stayed in Vinci now on 3 separate occasions totalling more than a month, I can say hand on heart this little unassuming Restaurant is the best in town! From the front it is a small shop, and on entering you will wonder if you're actually in the right place! However halfway down the left hand wall a staircase takes... More

We absolutely LOVED this restaurant and everything about it. Mariela was so unbelievably kind and the food was fantastic. It was perfect. We would have gone every night if we were not out visiting Pisa and Firenze. The food was tasty, reasonably priced and we walked out stuffed and happy each night. If you are in Vinci or anywhere nearby,... More

We have been visiting this restaurants for the past 14 years. The service, food and value has always been 100% Mariela, Maurizio and Simone have a wonderful authentic tuscan restaurant. They are so hospitable and also delighted to see us when we stay in an agriturismo nearby. We can recommend everything on the menu especially the vitello al limone, tiramisu... More
