A bit chaotic but food was amazing, and a beautiful setting. Beef with rosemary was one of my top 10 beef dishes of all time. Just don't ask for Pizza, as the table next to us did :-)

Especially for those who have already been in "God's Country" (at least one of them), superlatives are hard to come by.

The osteria is located in the small and beautiful borgo Marciano della Chiana, right in the center, spotting an unobtrusive entrance which then... More

The meat and pasta dishes are excellent, they are prepared according to traditional recipes to a high standard for what appears to be a simple local trattoria. The local red wine... More

We went with our Italian amici who raved about this place and is from a family full of great cooks and values traditional food. He said the pasta al forno "was better than my mother makes", and the family all loved it. Given it was the season an off the menu order of "e porcini grigliati" was readily accepted and... More

Previously I had heard it was a bit expensive for what was on offer, but under the new owners/ chef that is far from the case. It is very well located just off the Piazza Grande and has two reasonably sized rooms. The quality of the food and service were higher than anything else I experienced in more than a... More
