Best dinner!

This place has the soul of the part of Italy where it is. It is in an Italian borgo and the place mirrors it. Very nice atmosphere. The food is amazing. We took antipasti misti and they were delicious, then we shared a fiorentina, the best meat I tasted! Highly recommended!

How wonderfull can a good meal be. We had typical tuscan appetizers. Just pure delight. Then meat with a beautifull red wine. Very good service. Minor point was that it get's hot inside when full. This was number 2 in massa marittima when rated..wondering how it is possible to find anything better then this....

We ate here as a group of friends before a wedding. What a feast!! The starters just kept coming and they were all so tasty!! The wine was fantastic and amazing value. The setting was lovely tucked Aqua in a little cellar. We strongly recommend!

best steak of my life. Great atmosphere if you like eating in a cozy cave cellar (I do!). We can't wait to go back this summer! Order the bisteca florentina.

Amazing experience...the food was super fresh (a local farmer actually delivered the mushrooms as we got to the restaurant). We mostly trusted the owner with his recommendations and were not disappointed (warm and cold appetizer plate to share, T bone steak, mushroom pasta). Menus are only available in Italian, so bring a dictionary :)

Here we got a 5 dish menu. This was very good. I even liked the Tuscan pig. But the waiter was a problem. He was constantly chatting the couple next table. So we had a constant view of this waiter's back. The female waiter was also unpolite, mumbling the contains of the dishes so fast, we had no chance to... More

We used to frequent this place years ago during visits to Toscana, but hadn't been in perhaps 5 years or so, making this visit a "hope it hasn't changed" kind of moment. No surprises - in a good way as the food is still great, with the boss watching over your fiorentina steak like it was his baby as it... More

We were a big group (15), so some confusion about meny and amount of food. Lack of English as quite usual in Tuscany. Some of us speak french, spanish and a some words of italian, but the special meny with prices pr. kilo confused us. Quality of food and drink was excellent. Morisfarms wines ( especially Vermentino) are our favourite... More
