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

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.

The annual truffle festival is on in San Miniato, so things are busy! We called when we arrived, around 11, and got at 12:30 reservation. It has been a rainy, windy, chilly day, so the warm atmosphere was welcome. It's a tiny restaurant, simple and rather rustic, very pleasant. We ordered three dishes to share - an antipasto of carpaccio... More

We happened in here during truffle festival. Just wanted a simple pasta for lunch. We ordered pasta with white truffles which was amazing, and Pappardelle ala chingale. Both were really perfectly cooked and wonderful. Great house wine!! When we were ready for dessert, a table of six walked in and sat down next to us for lunch. It was non... More

Came here while walking the Via Francigena, so needed to just chill out and enjoy a nice meal, and I enjoyed this. Warm and welcoming, the food was good!

Don't be fooled by the small size and simple table lay out.This is seriously good food,all freshly made.The chef and owner has his car and motor bike racing photos round the restaurant that make good reading while he makes everything fresh for you,including the pasta . There are other restaurants around boasting glitzy surroundings etc., but I've learned through years... More

Small place with a big flavour. Rustic and homely. We had primi and secondi + wine. Make sure you pick a dish with truffles :)
