This is a tiny little osteria, with excellent food, very earthy and local. They specialise in cooking with local truffles; you need to go in the autumn to have white truffles; we went in May, when only black is available, but still it was still great. The main menu is very red meat orientated, liver pate, wild boar etc, though... More

We had a meal on the last day, and which was the best we had. It is a local Tuscan 'trattoria' run by Roberto with such passion! After the excellent meal, he offered us the traditional Vino Santo, and the local 'crustini' after the meal. Also a liqueur to round off the meal. I would recommend a meal there, anytime.

This was by far the best food we have had in Italy during an 18 day trip to Cinque Terre and Tuscany. We are staying in an agriturismo farmhouse nearby and walked into San Miniato (do not miss this town - awesome, birthplace of Napolean, on the via Francigena hiking trail). The father (chef) and son running this lovely little... More

And what a plesant surprise!! We had a wonderful meal. Two of us had wild boar, really recomendable! the rest of us had different pasta- dishes,... More

Just had a lovely lunch at this little restaurant. Simple menu, good prices (especially having just been in the heart of Chianti region), tasty food. Excellent bottle of wine and friendly welcoming service. We shall return!

Referred here from San Miniato hotel. Small restaurant with lovely simple Tuscan food especially meat dishes. May need to book ahead if busy.
