“Simply superb food in a pleasant environment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

This place is special with excellent good and reasonable prices.

My father lived near Torrita for over 20 years and this was his favourite - we even came here with 50 people after his recent funeral! The restaurant attracts a range of locals and tourists and the food is truly exceptional - in all honesty hard to beat in a 20 mile radius.

Luigi used to work in the north of England and he will happily use his English with you if you do not speak Italian.

Their pici are tremendous, their meat is tender and delicious and if Luigi has truffles in then have them over some egg pasta - what more can I say. You will not be disappointed if you go. Get someone else to drive then you can have some grappa at the end of the meal!

“Typico food in Quazinno”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Close to Sinalunga and recommended by hotel. Luigi the owner and his wife the cook do a fine job of providing excellent typical Tuscan food at a reasonable price. And when we were done, they kept provided additional food/drink gratis.

“The best Biscotti ever!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

The owner Luigi speaks English and Italian so you're good to go here. I had the truffle pasta and his wife is the chef - she makes the food and bakes the best Bisoctti ever!!!

“Exceptional Meal and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We had a terrific experience here. The service was excellent and the fresh pasta was delicious. We sat down on a quiet evening in September and enjoyed a leisurely three hour dinner while the sun was setting. The owner is very friendly and catered to our vegetarian diet. Excellent food. I highly recommend!

“Delicious meal and delightful hosts Luigi and chef Daniela!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

We were recommended to this lovely restaurant by our hosts at our amazing accommodation at nearby Siena House, who also made the booking for us. From the moment we arrived to the minute we left we were treated with such personal care and attention. The chef, Luigi's wife Daniela even came out to us on several occasions to talk to us about our food and on leaving she made up a parcel for us of her Delicious home made style of biscotti - the best I have ever tasted! Our meal was very tasty and the flavours delicate. Thankyou Luigi and Daniela for a lovely and memorable dining experience! Anna and Mark (Australia)
