The restaurant doesn’t look great from the outside and also the interior decoration is not really fancy but the food was surprisingly delicious. The catch of the day and the fish platter was very tasty. Also try the dessert – yummy! And all reasonably priced. We would definitely recommend this... read more

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but we returned 4 times in the fortnight that we stayed in Montaione - and had Mille Feuille for dessert each time! I doubt if it could be bettered!! My husband loves fish so was spoilt for choice. He enjoyed the lobster one night and a mixed seafood grill another time. I'... More

We ate here per recommendation of the owner of the home we were renting in the area. Unfortunately, our experience was not a good one. The staff was not very attentive and food just average compared to other local restaurants that we have enjoyed during our vacation.

We ate here in the low season as a lot of other places were still closed. This one was open and filled with a happy crowd of Italians and tourists. We had awesome pasta, risotto and great grilled seafood! This place isn't about being fancy or chic - it is about great and honest Italian food! I wish I had... More

Reasonable, very good food and even creative, something rare in mid-priced restaurant in Italy. We went back twice.

Went here for dinner & was a pleasant evening. Was really looking forward to fish after reading the reviews. My partner had the fish ravioli truffle oil which was amazing. My vongole was nice but lacked the depth of flavour and the grilled seafood platter was fine, with 2 large king prawns, a loungistine & a small piece of swordfish... More

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
