Modern outlook

This is great, a magnificent view, one of the best I have ever seen, an amazing wine list and a great atmosphere. This is Tuscan modern, meaning, still set in a beautiful building with masses of old features, but with a younger outlook on things. I love it here, try the Franciacorta, it's stunning

We loved this place at the top of town. We ate inside where the atmosphere is friendly and cosy. Lounge seating and tables and lots of creative use of wine boxes. It's a wine bar with a simple, limited but excellent menu. Crostini, prosciutto, soup, pasta etc. just what wanted after an unexpected hailstorm!

This small wine bar offers a limited but tasty menu and an excellent assortment of wine. The background music is moody and allows for conversation. We were looking for a less formal eatery as a change from the many wonderful restaurants that we were eating at but we still wanted a delicious meal. E Lucevan le Stella was a perfect... More

Friendly staff, knowledgeable about wine, made this a lovely lunch stop. After a light meal we tasted several Italian wines. The restaurant is attractive inside. The owners did a remodel to reveal an ancient archway built into one wall. The warm welcome, lovely surrounding inside and outside made this a very fun way to spend a leisurely afternoon.

Awesome selection of Italian wines, mostly from Tuscany but other regions as well. Staff are highly knowledgable about wines. You can tell it is a passion of theirs. Staff also very professional, friendly without being intrusive. Limited selection of food compared to restaurants but what they offer everyone states is excellent. You get olives, nuts and chips with a glass... More

Apperitivo with a view!!! Visiting the city and was told by many locals to check out this spot. At 6pm this spot has a beautiful view with amazing wine and aperitif. Best olives we have ever had. Live music on Fridays.
