We had a most delicious meal at this small but quaint ristorante in Vinci, Italy. The restaurant is quaint & was full of the locals. We ate the tastiest pasta ever. We were a party of just 4 but all the dishes we chose we delicious. The price too was good & would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Very disappointing , most other establishments were closed on this evening but this place was not doing a roaring trade! The owner/chef spent most of the evening reading the paper and watching 1970s pop videos on the TV in the restaurant which hardly contributed to the ambience of this very dated and shabby restaurant. Pity-the location is good. Only real... More

Just finished touring 'Il Museo Leonardiano di vinci' and we were famished. Just a stone's throw from the museum, we came across this lovely restaurant. Clean and well maintained. Great wine list and menu. Enjoyed a lunch of pizza and wine. Meal was hot and ingredients fresh. Great food and reasonably priced.

This restaurant was recommended to us - best to book as it gets pretty full. Delicious Italian cuisine, simple, tasty, well presented. Pleasant surroundings and atmosphere. We chose squid with papardelli and an amazing tortellini dish containing pear (superb!). The chef proprietor cooks your food and then serves you too. Good value for money - highly recommended.

we had pizza, nothing to die for, but ok. Place has caracteristic interior decor, but was not very clean, not dirty, but needed to be tighten up. There was a slice of bread under our table. Service not attentive. Tv on with loud volume. Would not recommend it.

Had the crostini misto and the grilled spare ribs. Even with coffee, 1/4 liter of wine, and mineral water the bill was just 16 euro. Food was well prepared, some of the best ribs I've had. Excellent food and excellent value.

I really must admit that this is the place where I've tried the best pizza in my live! My best option was Marinara with Tuscan salami (also artichoke can be included). Very nice and stylish place. The prices are normal.

After visiting few restaurants recommended by triadvisor users, I directed in Vinci to this restaurant. My disappointment was quite strong. Interier seemed to be rather unsorted, I do not want to say dirty, but the feeling was was very near to it. Run TV during lunch was unpleasant addition to interier. Young waiter was born and not very friendly. Pasta... More

Standard pizzeria, really nothing to write home about. Service was friendly its just that the pizzas were average and nothing stellar. They were a great value as not expensive at all. Maybe I am a bit too much of a foodie but it just wasn't mind blowing food.
