We enjoyed typical Tuscan fare here. Communication was a bit tough in my English and very limited Italian, but the service was friendly and efficient. We had one vegetarian option (the vegetarian option is a couple pasta dishes and some side dishes for the secondi) and one wild boar pasta followed by steak with truffles. The prices were fair and...

It was simply the most beautiful setting for lunch! Food was great! Looks like driving in to the forest for lunch but it was magical. Highly recommend. We sat outside. It looked like a scene from a movie.

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!

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
