Lovely slow cooked main dishes with a true tuscan feel. Very small place and no one speaks english so be prepared! They only take cash too.

Nice tiny restaurant in the heart of the city! Thus not on the main square were you find many tourist fellows but just a few more steps in a narrow cozy path. Indications for Slow Food dishes and good value for money.

When you arrive in Massa Marittima you immediately go back in time as you walk into Piazza Garibaldi, described in the Rough Guide as an exquisite example of Tuscan town planning, with the thirteenth century duomo set on broad steps at a dramatically oblique angle to the square. While probably accurate such words do little to convey the timeless feeling... More

This is a great place where to appreciate amazing food made with local ingredients, the King of Slow Food. Cozy location, lovely service, try their I BANDI extra virgin olive oil on bread, amazing. If you can eat in the narrow outside alley where the entrance is, the temperature is great in a sunny day.

This place is just so cute we couldn't pass it up! The atmosphere was awesome, great food presentation, reasonable price, and most importantly great customer service (which can be difficult to find in Italy). Look forward to going back soon! Thanks again for an enjoyable lunch!

Four of us had lunch and we enjoyed it. The service was great; clearly the restaurant is owned and run by a proud family who care very much. I tried the pici noodles with wild boar sauce. It was enjoyable. The desserts were also a hit.

They call this a 'slow food' restaurant. That doesn't mean the service is slow- it's very efficient. The chef and the ladies who run it are devoted to excellence in cuisine. Everything is locally sourced and very carefully cooked with great attention to all the flavours and sauces, and that includes the vegetables. They provided a superb starter based on... More
