tripe and local mushrooms (which I forgot the name) - one of the best meals of my life (note that this is a subjective opinion)! Terribly slow service but it was worth every minute of waiting :)

A bit more expensive than La Galera but also very good for pasta and fish. The restaurant was very busy for the few staff. May need to book in advance.

The staff were excellent and made an effort to be very friendly making conversation and suggesting local dishes and wine. The food however was just average with the saltiest spaghetti bong le I had ever tasted, almost in edible, other dishes were better. We were staying locally and this place was convenient, but there are better places to dine locally

The dining experience is a cozy family style where u and eat and relax after dinner theres no rush we were there for... More

The service is so welcoming and the food is so authentic you feel like eating at home with family! Try the monstrous 1Kg T-Bone steak if you are a man-eater or simply ask for a chef dish of the day to get a pleasant surprise.

My husband and I are staying near to Monteroni D'Arbia and this restaurant was recommended to us by the owners of our apartment. We didn't book a table but were lucky and got the last one available in the conservatory area of the restaurant (covered area looking out over the Tuscan hills.) The service was amazing. It couldn't be faulted.... More
