Exquisite views matched by good hearty food.

Such a wonderful stop during a Tuscany day trip. We had 3 excellent Chianti's that I sure wish I could have brought home in my suitcase. The pasta was heavenly--perfectly made. Crostini, salad, meats--we had a 5 course meal and every bite was wonderful.

We loved our dinners here. The pasta with truffles and sausage was so delicious. We loved their Bruschetta......so fresh! We ate here 3 times. The waitstaff was professional and lots of fun.

It was he second time we had a dinner there, and we were a bit afraid that the second time won't be so perfect as the first was some 5 years ago. It was, or even better. Waiters were accommodating, the food was perfect, (among others the best

Assuming you like truffle, consider the Burratina al Tartufo fresco to start with and the Tagliatelle (or Mezzalune) al Tartufo fresco to continue. Accompany with Brunello Di Montalcino (Casanova Di Neri) and finish with the home-made Tiramisu: an absolute treat!

Worth to visit if your needs for views prevail over needs for great food, taking in mind the location out of the way. Came specially for Fiorentina steak, didn't take anything else, except of wine. Here was the first problem - the wine was spoiled ( probably heat damaged or oxidized). It could happen everywhere, not the problem of particular... More

This place is certainly out of the way (take your GPS with you) but worth the drive. We arrived about 7 pm, and as the staff was just sitting down to their dinner we were each given a complimentary glass of prosecco and some antipasti on the patio, overlooking a typically beautiful Tuscan valley. We went in for dinner in... More

One of the best restaurants in the area. Amazing views, great food (must try the bistecca fiorentina), a wide selection of amazing local wines, and warm service. Definitely worth a visit!
