We had dinner there twice. The servers and owner were very nice to us. The food and wine were amazing. The pici pasta the best I had in the area.

The food overall was pretty good but the service was moody, unattentive and basically threw everything on the table. The salad, soup, contornis and main entree arrived all at once. Is this Italy or a diner in Georgia? Not the kind of meal I sat down for or expected.

This highly recommended restaurant failed to deliver on all counts. The service was bizarre with mains arriving with starters and the food barely average.

Great little Osteria. Try the perfect Pici with tomato and garlic souce. The grilled veggies are very tasteful. It is so good, we went twice for lunch. The location is in the beautiful historical center, parking is near. Very authentic.

We stopped in for something to eat before a day of wine tasting and view the country side and we were not disappointed. We arrived just ahead of the local lunch crowd. The service was good and the food, very good. The only regret is we did not make it back to try other dishes such and the pot roast,... More

We didn’t have any expectations when we walked into this Osteria for lunch. It was 7 of us, place was almost empty when we walked in and we even had some doubts about the place, but it got packed very quickly with both locals and tourists. Menu looked very interesting to us, a lot of Tuscan dishes. Prices were reasonable.... More

There is not a bad meal to be had in Italy but there is bad service. This is the only place in all of Italy where we felt totally disregarded and ignored. Too bad. A completely charming place but horrible service.

The place is charming, and the food was very good. It is typical Tuscan restaurant. We were there with our family (total of nine peple) and it was a very good experience.
