“Local Food and Hospitality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2010

Il Corso is a local and simple restaurant serving delicious home made food. The owners tell you what their dishes of the day are (in Italian). Homemade pasta, wild boar ragu and mouthwatering veal are on the menu (as non Italian speakers we had to guess most of the time but were never disappointed).

“Italian food when it is best !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2009

Super Italian Tratoria, where mamma and pappa are makeing 100% Italian homemade dishes. There are no ala carte menu. Mamma or Pappa come to the table telling in Italian what is on todays menu. It is no problem, just say si-si to everything - You will for sure like it.

The house red wine is good and at the same time cheaper than softdrinks.

Italian food when it is best.

“An REAL Tuscan trattoria!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2009

This is the kind of place I am looking for: where local citizens go out for meals,not where tourists go!
The place is small and comfortable, owned and managed by a couple of retired farmers, Vincenzo and Alma. They serve excellent home made "tortelli" pasta, plus a great variety of vegetables coming directly from their garden.
Vincenzo and Alma are very sweet - they do not speak a word of English (their daughter does) .
I was suggested this place by Emy from Pieve di Caminino: in my 7 day stay, I came back 5 times!
The externaal tables offer a view of the antique town castle. Bring a sweather: it was July and the breeze was pleasantly fresh.
