We were 8 people between the ages 8-40, selebrating a big birthday. We enjoyed a 7 course meal that triggered all our senses, and you can tell there is a lot of love and imagination in the creation of the food. We had a great night and will remember it fondly!

This is why I came to Italy, the food. I ordered the 7 course Badalui Experience and it was absolutely fantastic. The server was knowledgeable of all the food and even gave me a glass of wine on the house. Food presentation was as interesting as the flavor combinations. I'll be sure to stop back here next time I'm in... More

The ambience is a little lacking , a small bright dining room but as soon as the food arrives you realise this is something special . The local hotel recommended it to myself and a colleague as somewhere traditional to try . It is traditional local Italian food with a modern twist . It was all cooked to perfection and... More

The way the food is presented on the plate is partially almost artwork. Yes its not the cheapest location and maybe not to go for with family with children, but if you enjoy having... More

Whilst location can be certainly improved upon, and so can the interior decor, indeed we were fully satisfied with the food selection. The restaurant is pricey, yet if you are familiar with the fare on offer in and around Follonica Badalui cannot help standing out and shining like the proverbial jewel in the crown. Albeit at time bordering on the... More
