Not sure how others rated this so highly maybe we made bad menu choices. In particular both starters average both lacking taste/ flavour. Mains clams linguini (not) oily 50 clam shells 10 with clams in. Other main was red snapper with thin sliced potato (gratin) half not cooked enough and hard, dish was lacking in taste/flavour and over salted. Very... More

Unfortunately you didn't enjoy our food. As we wrote elsewhere most people love it, but it's impossible to be loved by everyone. Thank you and best regards. MV More

We arrived without reservations at about 8:00, a bit early for dinner in Italy. They had no room for us, but said if we were willing to leave by 9:30, they had a table for us. As it turned out, we would have liked to stay longer, because it was an outstanding experience. We both had seafood entrees and they... More

We ate here twice in one week partly because we wanted to vary the meat heavy diet characteristic of the area and partly because the food was good enough enough to tempt us back. The restaurant is in the centre of the old part of the down in a quaint narrow street and has a corresponding ambiance. The staff were... More

Hard to judge here as ate with kids who were hungry and it's not that sort of place. But seemed a little bit disorganised and not really sure of what they were about. Food was alright but I've had much better seafood pasta all over Italy. Atmosphere bit quiet and not enjoyable.

We've been to Montaione on holiday for the last couple of years and have eaten here on a number of occasions. The repeat visits are an indication of the experience! The food is excellent and whilst I think the seafood is the best, my family have also enjoyed selections away from seafood. If you like moules marinière, then I recommend... More

The flavours the execution of the cooking and the staff were fabulous....our one regret we did not go back on our last night to eat there.....good luck to them being open every night throughout the summer months.

Disappointment. Fish of the day was slightly overdone, and relatively expensive. Service was friendly but missed some professionalism. Tip for the cook: you should not walk in the restaurant greeting friends with such a dirty apron, and your trousers hanging so low... It really did not improve my appetite.

My husband and I ate here 3 times on our recent trip to the area. The food is fantastic particularly the wild bore and the mussels. The only downfall for us were the desserts. They were nothing special and we felt let the restaurant down. This is a small friendly local restaurant. The local wines are very reasonable and the... More

We found this place on the recommendation of our villa owner. It was not too far away so we decided to try it. Don't be fooled by its appearance. Despite literally being a hole in the wall and with a cramped interior, our family of 8 agreed that this was the best seafood we had in Tuscany! I had one... More
