For our last night in Italy, after 10 days in Tuscany, we couldn't have picked a better restaurant.
Quiet location on a back street, the restaurant is beautiful inside with a great atmosphere.
The service was wonderful, the woman who served us (?owner) is the sister of the chef and told us the olive oil and much of the produce is from their grandfather, so very much a family concern. She told us the specials and brought out a platter with the fish of the day, all bright eyed and very fresh looking.
The bread is all home baked and we tried 4 different types all of which were the best tasting we had all trip. Much Italian bread tends to be made with little salt and has poor flavor. This bread was delicious, and the home made bread sticks too.
We started with a mussel soup which had great flavor and very fresh tasting mussels. I had squash flowers stuffed with a light cheese and wrapped in a very thin slice of bacon To die for!
Our primi were a guinea hen ravioli and spaghetti a la carbonara, both of which were superb.
We shared a flat fish (like sole, can't remember the name) which was perfectly cooked. It had wafer thin slices of potato roasted over it which had a perfect mix of crispiness and softness.
We enthused so much about the meal the waitress brought her brother, the chef, out to meet us. Very friendly and personal service.
