My wife and I arrived a few minutes early for dinner. A man, who turned out to be our water and who I believe is the owner, came out to welcome us and he showed us to a nice table outside where we enjoyed an aperitivo while we waited for the chef (his wife?) to get things ready in the kitchen. This was a pleasant change from, "We're closed now, come back later". It also gave us time to study the menu. Both of us had a difficult time making a choice, all of which looked good. The owner/waiter proved to be a very pleasant man, knowledgeable about his food, the local area, and particularly about the local olive oil. He served us some Tuscan bread with no less than eight bottles of olive oil, carefully arranged from the lightest to the most flavorful. It was fun and educational to sample them all and we bought two different varieties after we finished eating. But we didn't get a "hard sell" from him. On the contrary, it took a while for us to discover that we could purchase oil at the restaurant. That was a nice surprise too. Our meals were delicious, as we expected, but the entire dining experience including our conversation with the owner was what made it memorable. It was the best meal of our visit, by far. Highly recommended.
