We had confirmed reservations via email but host seemed to not know about them. We were seated in their small dining room in any case by host. My husband and mother-in-law had eggplant parmisan which tasted good but was still cold in center. I had chingiale ragu which was fine. Had bottle of red wine recommended by host that was... More

Had dinner at this restaurant on the Friday of Ferragosto. Arrived without reservations and was seated immediately, despite all the warnings from the "experts" that reservations are absoluely needed in Montalcino during the Holiday week-end. Other diners also arrived and were seated without reservations. What was most striking was the ease and relaxed manner of the owner/host, Antonnio. Unlike other... More

This restaurant has one of the finest chefs in the area. The food is local Tuscan with a creative touch. Favorite is the rabbit salad. A reservation is essential for dinner, but sometimes not for lunch.

One of our best dinner in Italy with absolutely wonderful steak and tiramisu. The restaurant is family-run by Antonio and Roberta who are in charge of wine and food respectively. Therefore, we had a very good sense of a cozy environment. Really recommended!

We found this restaurant on our last night, and it was worth the wait! The recommended tasting menu with the tasting wines was absolutely delicious. Antonio was a welcoming host, who very kindly let us sample some grappa, which we had wanted to do during our trip, but never got round to. Highly recommend this place.

Suggestion from the hotel, this is a nice little restaurant. We had the fiorentina steak which was delicious and had a great Brunello wine. The owner comes to your table and explain the menu and what wine is good with your meal.

We were recommended by a local to go here and we were happy we went. The service was very good and friendly and the overall meal was good but it had its short comings. The cost for water was pricey, the dolce was lacking on style and flavor. The wine was tasty and fair priced. I thought the menu was... More

The meal was good but not the best we had on our trip and the decor was a bit off-putting (christmas decorations?!) but the staff were excellent. More of a family friendly restaurant as opposed to a romantic/scenic one, I think next time we'd go somewhere to take advantage of the views, but we'd perhaps return if in a bigger... More

Antonio and Roberta are amazing and both greeted us for lunch . We had a few glasses of local Rosso Tuscano wines, Bruchetta, and pasta with boar ragu. All of it was spectacular and a great lunch. While this place doesn't have the view like some other places , they make up for it with great food and service.

Found this restaurant in Rick Steves' book. It was wonderful. The service was excellent and the food devine. My husband and I tried the fixed price menu that included antipasto, pasta, beef and dessert. We also had the wine pairing with it. Wow, a delicious meal. The dessert was the best! Would definitely visit again when we are in the... More
