We were staying at the Saturnia Tuscany Hotel for two nights when the hotel restaurant was closed. But it turned to great fun for us! We reached this restaurant by walking up 15 minutes the steep hill shining the flashlight. Madame of the restaurant welcomed us, a bit surprised knowing that we came by walk.

We came upon this restaurant purely by chance when we were exploring the tiny village of Poggio Murella. The chef Nani and his wife were very hospitable and we relied entirely on their recommendation of the dishes to order as the menu was entirely in Italian. Each dish was fabulous. At the end of the meal, after having our dessert,... More

The food was very good, fresh, and local. We had the gnocchi with red wine which were excellent and pick with tartufo, also excellent. The owners were extremely friendly and welcoming and even sang for us as entertainment. All in all, a great dinner, at an excellent price.

We are flattered by the wonderful comments expressed on our restaurant and on our work. The Michelin star is not our goal. With great honesty believe that we are very far from deserving it, but we appreciate that you've thought about it. Thank you, best regards, Sonia and Nanni. More

It's not busy at lunch so we had a chance to talk with the owners and hang out in the kitchen with the chef/owner for a while as he was stirring this sauce. When I heard they also entertain and he has sung his... More

I would recommend everyone who stays in this region to visit this excellent restaurant. the service is very friendly and helpful. The chef is a master of his trade! The food was excellent all was made from fresh and local ingredients. The small restaurant is lovely furnished. This is traditionally Tuscany food as it must taste!
