Wonderful Dinner

This lovely, tiny restaurant serves excellent (slow) food, with emphasis on local ingredients. The kind of places where you are just feeling great. Lovely service & good value for money too.

We picked this place purely based on the location and its charm. Very inventive and delicious slow-food; highly recommended! We sat at one of the tiny tables outside, located in a tiny but beautiful alley - felt like a scene from a movie. Locals strolled by - even one guy (hunter) with his rifle, hound dog and a pheasant stuffed... More

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!
