Tucked away down a small dirt road (but well worth the drive) this is a lovely restaurant in a stunning location. The antipasto platter was amazing - a wonderful selection of local produce. The osso buco was the best I have ever tasted! Good value as well.

Pictures don't do it justice! Very picturesque and more rustic elegant yet very welcoming atmosphere. You overlook the vineyards, the stars at night are amazing. Food was very good, reasonably priced, and the local wine is a must!

A trully unique restaurant in.... the middle of nowhere!!!! it is hard to find, the road is not good but all these things worth for everyone to try them because the final result is excellent! the view of a piece of Tuscany forest-valley is breathless, the food is tasty, the wines (especially the local 'rosato') are in a top level,...

it takes some narrow curves and a bumpy road (but you get to see Montefioralle or Badia a Passignano on the way). and then it's just breathtaking. the view is fantastic, the waiters super nice and the food is exactly how it should be. the house wine, from their own vineyards, is great. we were offered prossecco in the beginning...

The food was delicious and wow they give you a lot of it! We went at night, I would recommend going maybe in the afternoon or when the sun is setting because I'm sure the view is amazing, it was just so dark when we went it was hard to see the view. This place feels like its in the... More

We ate here on two occasions and everything we tried was perfection. The steak, the pastas, the charcuterie and wine were the best.The restaurant, the grounds, views and service will not dissapoint.

Italian friend recommended to visit this place while travelling in Tuscany. And it definitely make sense to have a meal here! It's fantastic! Lanscape, food, overall atmosphere. Love this place. You smell food a hundred meters away when you come to this place ;)) Will definitely come back one day.

Firstly, the journey there is along seriously rough roads but good fun and makes it more special in many ways. Our little Fiat made it though so nothing to be too concerned about. The view is spectacular in the evening light. The wine is delicious and the waiters know what they're talking about (we ordered two glasses of house white... More

The owner of our villa said that this is her "favourite restaurant in the world" - I can see how. Off the beaten track but easy if you have a GPS. If your car is very low you might scrape on the dirt road occasionally. Well worth the trek - the most amazing outlook of any restaurant we visited in... More

Away from the main route, but worth the detour. Sensational location with perfectly cooked traditional tuscan specials. Fettucine with truffles was creamy and the best of the region, but don't miss the Tomino with porcini... what was that?? Good and inexpensive house wine is a good call......
