This was a restaurant we had wanted to try, as it is along the main street (via Novembre) of our little town in San Casciano in Val de Pesa where we were staying a month. They seemed happy to see us initially, yet when we inquired about the open table in the front outside along the street, he offered the... More

I went here with my family over the Christmas holiday as we were visiting San Casciano, which is nearby to our home. The location is warm and pleasantly decorated, which was fine. The menu was a bit limited in terms of variety. The quality of food was middle of the road for Tuscany in our opinion, and we live here.... More

If you want to taste real authentic Tuscany food served by local chefs then this is the place to be. Charming atmosphere, stunning food and friendly service. Be aware that the local cuisine here entails no fish dishes...

The restaurant is at the back of San Casciono's best butcher. We had small starters like goat cheese and artichoke in olive oil which was very good followed by the one and only bistecca fiorentina which was excellent. We sat in the back courtyard which is dog and smoking friendly. Excellent!

We enjoyed our meal here with a beautifully rich boar ragu pasta to start. The cod with leeks was tasty and beautifully seasoned. My one complaint was there was too much! My boyfriend wasnt wild about the pork ribs from the grill but enjoyed the sausage and the accompaniements we had. A freindly Maitre D' and pleasant staff.

My friend and I stopped by this ristorante as part of our day with 'Italy and Wine' tours. We were already pretty full after our first winery, since Italians don't drink wine without eating food, but we were up for the challenge. We had a table wine with lunch, which was fine, but the reason I would return as often... More
