“Great taste, great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

We came on the recommedation of out hotelier, who advised us that restaurants with hand written, limited menus and without people attempting to drum up business or photos of the food are the places to go, which confirmed my previous experiences of trattoria/osteria style eating. A friendly waiter showed us to out seats in a small but pleasantly rustic room. Service was well timed and surprisingly attentive considering there was one waiter and one chef for a restaurant with about 30 guests. The 26oz T Bone steak was certainly the highlight - perfectly cooked, perfectly seasoned, and reasonably priced at €28. And considering half a litre of good wine, some sparkling water, a cheese plate for two to share, a potato side (which I didnt need), and my fiancée's very tasty goat's cheese pasta dish only took the bill up to €51, it was very well priced. No 'coperta', 'servizi' or bread charge, with our digestif of Amaro gratis, was a refreshing change.

“Just ok.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

This meal was disappointing. The spaghetti all'amatriciana was a bit watery and bland. The ravioli with osso buco ragu was slightly better. The waiter was friendly and the clientele boisterous. Overall it was very fairly priced, just not that tasty across the board.

“Super good value, super good Tuscan food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Great little unassuming trattoria with really hearty authentic Tuscan food. Had typical Tuscan antopasto with mixed salumi and cheeses, lasagna, and cantucci+vin santo for desert. Service was good. Very small place with small tables, but clearly a place where locals go. Not for those looking for a fancy experience but rather a nice home cooked meal.

“Great Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Most people equate expensive to mean good and inexpensive to be fair. This was just the reverse... The food was exceptional and the server was entertaining. Listen to the server when ordering, he did not steer you wrong. Great food great price.

“Best Meal in Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

This place is amazing! My husband and I were treated like family by the staff, who answered all of our menu questions and ensured that we knew what we ordered. The food was phenomenal (my husband had rabbit and I had a pasta dish) but the cannoli was the best I've ever tasted! We didn't have reservations, so we got there at opening and were seated immediately. While there, I heard no less than 3 other English speaking parties compliment the food among themselves and to the waiter. The prices were very reasonable and we finished our meal with a shot of grappa (also recommended!!!). After trying to think of something we didn't like, we couldn't. We would absolutely return to this awesome trattoria!
