“Fantastic Tuscan cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

A very cosy small restaurant on the hills behind bolgheri/san vincenzo area, family owned and run. Menu changes depending on the season and what good is available. Have Cristiano suggest what is good that day and what wine to combine, and you will not be disappointed.
I strongly suggest to visit out of season, during the winter when the menu contains more hunting game food.

“Tuscany in Style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Small but very good place in the middle of nowhere in Tuscany's outback.
You would not expect such excellent service, great food, exquisite wine selection and lovely family atmosphere in this tiny village.
Always worth a visit, when around - but remember to book a table!

“Tuscan home cooking at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012 via mobile

Sunday lunch here today was a highlight of our holiday - the food was faultless and the atmosphere truly Italian. Nadia and Christiano were great hosts. We recommend any pasta (we had with rabbit and with sage and butter) and bistecca alla Fiorentina. Enjoy!
If you want a great place to stay nearby, try agritourismo Villetta do Monterufoli - wonderful.

“SIMPLY THE BEST”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

An absolute gem, situated in one of those pretty little Tuscan towns, off the beaten track this restaurant is one of the finest Tuscany has to offer. Absolutely flawless. Top quality food, wine and service! Truly the best, perhaps that's why we keep on going there again and again and again. We just can't decide whether we like it better in Summer, al fresco, with all those wonderful Summer flavours or in Winter, chomping away on comfort food in front of the log fire! Cristiano we love you and the rest of the family of course!
