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 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

Came here for lunch. We selected dishes from their lunch menu. All were very well prepared, typical Tuscan dishes. Prices are very friendly as well!! The service was accurate and very friendly. A new favourite!

Lovely restaurant in a beautiful setting. Waited 40 minutes just to order. After an hour and a half we had to check to be sure they didn't lose our second course. We asked for our check when it was served because we thought we would never talk to anyone again. Wish we could have walked out earlier. Food was mediocre... More
