This restaurant is below the museum of Leonardo Di Vinci. Prices are reasonable and food is excellent!

This is a decent place for just getting some grub in without frills, bells or song and dance. In general food is fine, but nothing special. Some of our group though did have very good pasta dishes. There was a very pleasant waitress serving us, as has been noted in other reviews. Decor is ok as well, a bit mish-mash... More

Ate here following a recommendation, it's tired and run down but we were told the food was good and it was busy. There was only one waitress and she was friendly but very in attentive (as so busy?!). Service was so slow, eventually ordered food and drink, first course came and was tasty. My second course eventually arrived, no offer... More

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.
