Crowded, noisy and plagued by beggars selling roses every ten minutes. Main courses arrived with no fork and no serving spoons for the salad. I used to eat here years ago and the place was perfect - the new owners need to adopt a more friendly and intimate atmosphere, and forget trying to cater for huge numbers with mediocre service...

Lot of choices and diversified menu. Very professional and efficient staff. Nice homemade desserts Busy restaurant and does not accept bookings which speaks by itself. Went there more than 2 times and tried the taggliattas, beef carpaccio, bruschetta, cheesecake. Nice typical tuscany decoration and atmosphere.

Attractive restaurant with good food and atmosphere. Unluckily we found a bit of metal scourer in our food, but the patrons were very apologetic and did not charge us the service fee. Accidents happen but it's the great response that makes a wonderful restaurant. I had rabbit for the first time, which I thoroughly enjoyed, much to the chagrin of... More

Sadly we went there three times. The first two times were fabulous and so for our last dinner we decided to go back there as our final leaving italy dinner. What a disappointment! Clearly they has either lost a chef or it was his day off, as the food was awful! Several of us ordered the palenta and wild boar,... More

This restaurant was one on the first we tried when we moved here some years ago. It has never failed to deliver - excellent food which reflects the season, good service and good value too. Despite being popular on trip advisor it is more Italian than tourist.

One of the first restaurants we found when we moved here 10 years ago and it is as good now as then. I always have the ravioli - home made and just the best. Family-run, consistent quality and excellent value for money!

This restaurant has a great menu that has reasonable prices for authentic Italian food. They cater to families, and have a nice selection of pastas and sauces that you can mix-and-match, plus lots of other great options. Went there with friends and really enjoyed the wine selections and speedy service. Definitely a great dinner spot!
