The service is excellent, as well as the food. I recommend the pasta cinghale! The wine selection is amazing, too. It is a little drive from Florence, but its worth the trip!

We came on Sunday lunch time. The restuarant was crowded which cause us to wait 45 minutes until we got the food we ordered. The food was cold . The tartufo pasta had very few pieces of tartufu .The steak (fillet steak ) was hard and rare instead of the medium we asked.

The location and ambience were picture perfect. Stefano and his wife (the chef) made us feel welcome and served a delicious meal that could only be done in Tuscany. Bravo! Stefano - you have created a jewel.

A true Italian restaurant with an Italian owner. Tucked away in the woods, it almost feels like a best kept secret. Very friendly staff that speaks mainly Italian but with some English words and finger pointing you will get what you want. The food is delicious and the wine menu and housemade cakes do the rest. One to put on... More

We discovered the place by chance as it is remote. Had a very good lunch on their terrace under trees. The tagliata ai porcini was very good as well as the pasta alla sorrentina .

Lovely Evening spent with family. Great, peaceful location and quality good. Reservations highly recommended. Homemade pasta just the right side of aldente. Soft meat and tasty vegetables. They also have a small, but nevertheless good, vegetarian menu. Would happily return.
