“Perfect view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012 via mobile

While staying in Panzano for two months, whenever friends would come visit us, this was the place for a lunch. The view is spectacular and the food delicious. On a sunny day you have a perfect view of the valley below Panzano with olive trees and grape vines as far as you can see. Nowhere better on a sunny day in Tuscany. The food is well prepared and as advertised, typical Tuscan fare. They did have spareribs and sausages as a secondi and it was great. Bring your camera!

“Terrace views and great hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Walked into this restaurant so we could eat outside in the late summer and had a great ribolita soup overlooking the valley. Went back for dinner inside and enjoyed marvelous Tuscan steaks with friends. The owner was very welcoming, the food was terrific and the daytime views from the terrace marvelous. Recommended with pleasure.

“A terrace lunch with a panoramic view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We had Sunday lunch here some years ago when the trellises over the terrace were dripping with wysteria in full bloom. The food was great, and we again have a lunch here with polenta and cingale ragout...and then split a Chianina steak. It was too much lunch...but it was flat out delicious. The steak is a once in a lifetime thing for me, but there were several families who told us they come once or every other week.

“Great Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

We dined here with a group of 10 people doing a tour of Tuscany.
The restaurant offered excellent food and wine and extemely good value.
The night we were there it was threatening rain and it was quite windy which was disappointing as the outside garden area looked great. Wisteria canopy of the whole outdoor area overlooking a Tuscan valley, I am sure it would be magnificent in the spring. Dine here and you will not be disappointed.

“Enjoyable meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We ate a meal one evening during our stay in the area and found the food and ambience to be great, unfortunately it was too late in the season to sit outside, but the inside area is delightful.
Definitely worth a visit.
