Living the Tuscan dream

Called a steak house but we actually all had fish. Lovely restaurant with great service. The food was very nice and the setting beautiful, very good value for money with primarily locals as patrons.

It's advertised as a steak house but they don't have any sauce accompaniments. Pepper, truffle,cheese Etc. When we asked they said they have ketchup or mayonnaise.? We found that strange? That said, the steak was cooked amazing and its not just steak, they have a full menu of beautiful pasta dishes. And the house wine is lovely and excellent value... More

Second visit, so first experience ensured a return. Not just steak, but full menu of pasta, seconds, and antipasti. Good local sfuso wine, and great selection of bottles from the revered Bolgheri region. Outdoor dining just off the road, but not obnixiously loud. Vineyards and hills beyond. Friendly local service with a smile. Excelent pasta with a wild boar ragu,... More

I was there with my family for an August lunch. The place is very nice, close to the main road and with a very nice outside patio. We had a great Bistecca Fiorentina with a friendly service.

A nice location, just forget about the cars passing by, great service and nice dishes. We took the "Gran Misto di Mare Caldo", a perfect sea fruit starter for two people and we decided... More

We ate with a family of 5 and chose thuna slices. The fish was good. The service was slow. The order was taken after 15 minutes waiting. Then 30 minutes waiting for the food to arrive. Then again I had to ask 3 times for the bill and wait for 5 minutes to pay. I almost could have left without... More
