“Good pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

We went here for a pizza at lunch time. The ingredients tasted fresh and it was the nicest pizza we've had so far in tuscany. Reasonable price and fairly quick service.

“Simple, honest, good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

This is a simple place, but the food is very well done. The portions are sizeable, the price is very decent. The stewed meat was excellent. I read some comments about the owner being a bit unwelcomig, and he is a bit. However once he takes care of you, he really takes care of you. I would go again.

“Goog home cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

We had dinner twice in this place.
It may seem that the restaurateur is a bit glum, but he knows his business - the dishes are very good. We really liked the restaurant and food.

“Eat here if you are in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

We had some of our best meals at this restaurant during our 2.5 week Italy vacation. The food was so good that we came back three more times. The caprese salad was outstanding. The buffalo mozzerella was fresh and delicious and about the size of a baseball. The tagliatelle with wild boar marinara was amazing. The house specialtly, called "drunken chicken" was absolutely delicious. It is marinated all day in a red wine sauce. The house wine was also excellent. In addition, the prices were very reasonable - a very filling 2 course dinner for two with a liter of wine was about 50 Euros.

I am not sure why some prior reviewers were unhappy with the service. The owner was very friendly, as was his daughter-in-law, who is also a server. At the end of our fourth night eating here, we had a great conversation with entire family that runs the restaurant and stayed until closing. The food and service here was one of the highlights of our trip.

“Great steak and big values pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Had a great sliced steak. Family has pizza and pasta. House wine was good value Nice out look on the balcony. They apply the Coperto service charge which I assume is the tip. Service fine. Owner seems to get flustered easily. Worth a visit
