“Top Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Great experience, Italian food but in a bit new way.
Not the standard dishes but some new things.
Super Location in the old part of Chianciano Terme
A must if you are in Chianciano !

“Great food in a charming environment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We are from Italy, but we have been living in the US for several years now. We had dinner in the small restaurant in the old Chianciano and had a great time. Owners are extremely friendly and knowledgeable, the place is rustic but charming, the food and wine is great and very reasonably priced. Without describing the menu, that changes accordingly to the season, I simply want to advice anybody in the area to give it a try: you will be rewarded !

“Excellent atmosphere, food, wine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Delightful place opened since April , we were given a warm welcome . We had a selection of shared antipasti - not cold meats and cheese but crostini, a chick pea starter ( lovely) and pappa al pomodorro. All tasty. The wine was lovely - nobile from Montepulciano . The hamburger ( not in a bun ) was delicious ( so my children said) . Those in our party who had pasta said it was very good. The meat was delicate and cooked well. Dessert again we had a selection all were good .
The food we found to be well cooked, simply presented but all with a great flavour. We later discovered that there is 1 chef in the kitchen - we guessed more. We were there on a busy evening so things were not speedy but we enjoyed the atmposhere and the wine! We would without a doubt return.
