Traditional Italian food for a very good price. Amazing pasta, meat and dessert. A great place for an easy evening out with friends or family. Make sure to call to get a reservation.

This was one of my most favorite meals in Italy for many reasons. The food is amazing, truly homemade Italian, and very typical of the Tuscan region. We arrived at dinner time after a horseback ride at La Fiaba, and were very ready to eat! Be sure to make a reservation - they are packed every night of the week... More

Went there twice during our week long stay. Great food and wine each time. Andrea is a very happy owner, even when the crowds meant that sometimes service was slow. Just relax and enjoy the great atmosphere. Recommend you make a reservation tho.

This restaurant was recommended by a local we know and we weren't disappointed. Although service is very slow and the waitresses aren't the happiest, the proprietor was very happy, attentive and whistled throughout the evening! The food was great and authentic. We highly recommend the Tagliatelle with wild boar sauce.
