“Perfect in evey way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

With charming views from a Tuscan hillside, a simple menu cooked fabulously well and incredibly friendly staff this is an ideal evening out whilst on holiday with one's family or a deux.
The restaurant is small and well off the beaten track and it is tough to get a table on the terrace as it is usually booked well ahead by locals (always a very good sign).
Somewhat charmingly, it closes for what should be two if its busiest weeks of thje year in late August. Good for them - it's not all about the money!
Go if you possibly can.
