Good genuine Italian food

Don't let a fairly functional room put you off- it may lack some atmosphere, but the view is great and you can sample some well cooked local food. Pasta is of course excellent. Seemingly untouched by tourism, you can enjoy good food and select some great local wines from a comprehensive list. And... read more

We came 10 minutes before the restaurant opens and the guy was very annoyed with us even though we were just studying the menu outside. He was just rolling his eyes on us. Shame, the view looked fantastic and I am sure the food is good. Left without trying.

As per subject, this is definitely the BEST restaurant in this area for the TRADITIONAL food. Everything is fresh and hand made and wines are great and with good price.

We were a party of 9 people roving Tuscany with a foodie agenda. Having found Da Ugo in the Slow Food guide, and cross checked with tripadvisor and yelp, we reserved for 7pm (early) and were one of the first ones there. I am pretty sure early reservations are likely to be easy to snag. With reservations in hand, we... More

A fabulous restaurant with magnificent views, attentive service, fine wine & the food was divine. We visited twice on our holiday - both times without reservation for a table of five. I would highly recommend anyone wanting a taste of true Tuscany to visit.

We loved this place, not only because one could fritter away the afternoon gazing at the lovely vineyards below and the strunning Mediterranean Sea beyond, but also because the food was classic rustic Tuscan, a genre that is unfortunately disappearing. The woodchuck sauce on the pappardelle was sublime, as was the risotto with squid ink. The sorbetto di limone was... More

We had a delicious dinner here. We'd been told there was no need to reserve since the season was over and so we turned up at 8 on a Friday night and luckily snagged the only available table in the place! Recommend booking on weekends to be sure you'll get a table. Shared the polenta with ragu for antipasto, took... More

The staff and ambience were not what we had hoped for. The main course of jugged boar was excellent but otherwise the food was average

Although it is still a very good restaurant and I would highly recommend it but at least on my last visit, my rabbit was not tender enough. My friend loved the chingale pasta with mushrooms. I practically tried all the dishes in 2006 and loved it but this year I was a bit disappointed.
