Ended up at the place by luck during a holiday visit. Love the tiramisu and panacotta. Friendly staff. Must go.

This sweet older couple has been running this restaurant for years with the wife in the kitchen and the husband serving her wonderful home cooked meals. It is a relaxed family establishment with honest food which will fill you up and not leave your wallet empty. And after all the meals I've had in Italy I can honestly say that... More

We absolutely loved it. Three different dishes 'tris di pasta' (starter for minimum 2) shared among our group were delicious. Tagliatelle with tartufo (truffle) was fantastic! The owner was our waiter for the evening and although the place was very busy, he was extremely attentive making sure we were enjoying ourselves. We were rather loud laughing and joking but we...

Simple ingredients, homemade food, great wine, perfect atmosphere. Good prices. My wife and I came here on the recommendation of the inn keepers where we were staying in Greve in Chianti. I had Risotto with Gorgonzola and Pear and my wife had the Spinach Ravioli with spicy red sauce. the meal was OFF THE HOOK!

We had a fantastic lunch, the owner was very helpful. The food was great and it was local produce which is fantastic to see it getting used in restaurants. The wines were great as well. I would go back for sure.

We stopped at this picturesque place for afternoon snacks. Altho the service was excellent and the food very good, the prices were higher tha typical for the region. I would recommend continuing on to Greve or Figline Valderno for a meal.

We plan to return here when we next visit the area in summer 2014, it was spring when we last had the opportunity and we dined here 3 times in a week at lunchtime, to make the most of the location. Sunday lunch is marvellous - lots if Italian kids sat at a table separate to their parents all very... More

We ate here during a recent trip to Tuscany. We loved the food. Its hard not to in Tuscany. It is situated outside of the town in an older home. The owners husband and wife do a great job and were very personable. I had a fried rabbit and chicken dinner which was very good. Would definitely recommend it.

If you travel to the Greve area, do yourself a favor and drive the 8 kilometers into the countryside to visit this restaurant. We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. Stephano and Patrizia make sure that all their customers are highly satisfied. Try the risotto with pear and cheese for a wonderful mouthful of taste.
