Beautiful !!

Recommended to come here from where we were staying at Il Conte del sole. Awesome food, fantastic chicken and veal from the wood fired oven. Simple and delicious with out pretence. Good wine list and very friendly and helpful staff. Definitely return, and a must visit when in the area.

The restaurant is almost in the middle of no where, and I remember asking my girlfriend who would drive all the way out here? I was about to find out. The restaurant has this wonderful vibe, that tells you that this place is good. The staff was very nice and very friendly. The menu was extremely tempting and the dishes... More

Came here on the suggestion of our B&B host at Il Conte del Sole, and came back a second night. Tuscan specialties were very good. Service a little slow - probably due to short-staffing. Very nice regional wines selections, by the bottle or glass. Unique gadget on the bottle that first pours a tasting portion. If you like it, the... More

A wonderful dining experience from all facets. Food, wine, view, service, ambiance. I highly recommend the veal filet. It was cooked perfectly, tender, juicy and flavorful. (I am very particular about my steak.)

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
