“Will come back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

This restaurant was suggested by the staff of the hotel we were staying at.
It is in a very nice village, and the restaurant itself is quite nice, surely not elegant, but simple and clean.
The food was tipycal tuscany dishes, very tasteful, and we also had a very good local wine.
The prices were average for that area of Italy.
We will return to this nice restaurant, and I would definitely reccomend it to anyone visiting the area.

“real Tuscany”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

On the beautiful hill of Bolgheri there is a nice restaurants: Osteria Magona.
Amazing wines, very good meat and standard Tuscan food.
Anyway, I can suggest you to taste it in a relaxed way.
The service is not the best; very very slow service due to the fact that the owner probably prefers save money than spend on waiter competence.

“definitely to go back to”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

This restaurant was recommended by a local who managed to get us in despite it being a very busy Sunday night. Lucky for us. The beef on skewers with rosemary was a great starter and the stuffed courgette flowers just melted in your mouth. The main dishes were tasty and just a little bit different. Great meal and friendly staff despite the rush - good wine and all for a very reasonable price. It's especially nice to have a good meal in a tourist centre where the risks of being ripped off are always high.

“Paradise for meat lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012 via mobile

Our experience in this restaurant was so good, that we immediately made a second booking when checking out. The food was so delicious that we could not wait to get back - and we had regretted that we did not order their specialty - man-sized steak - the first time.

The dishes are beautifully arranged and very tasty. Meat is a major ingredient in many of them, but the menu is varied.

The specialty is large steaks. Very large (1kg) is considered "small". The two of us shared one, and it was more than enough. "I would like mine medium cooked". Not possible! Not with steaks of this size. Prepare for a very rare piece of meat that is incredibly tasty and so tender that it melts on your tongue. A must try! Thanks to Omar in the kitchen.

Good wine list with many of the great local wines from the bolgheri area as well as a nice selection of other Italian wines.

The staff is very friendly and flexible, creating a good atmosphere. Prices are in the upper end of Tuscany but they are very reasonable.

Don't miss out on this example of food-art!
