Terrible, horibble people how serve in the restaurant, good but very expensive food ( average 220€ for 4 adults+ 2 children ) dinner with 1 bootle of wine, stay away, they did not open the terrace door because the air is humid after the rain (they said)...

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

We've eaten in this restaurant a couple of times during our last stay in Tuscany. Our hosts recommended it to us, and it was a good recommendation as we would never visit this place otherwise: the restaurant is inside a not-so-nice building, at the crossroads...

But once you're inside - you'll be delighted to find great pizzas, one of the greatest I've eaten in my life, fantastic pastas, and last but not least - a decent selection of wine. And this place is pretty cheap, an average dinner for us (2+2) was around 50-60 EUR. Including wine.

The only problem with the place is that the staff sometimes needs too much time to get your orders. Last time we waited over 20 minutes for the server to come... Once you're through the ordering process - everything is perferct.

“Typical Tuscan Trattoria”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

We have enjoyed several meals at this trattoria, the food and local wine have always been to our liking and would recommeend the pasta and the bistecca fiorentina, one can also find pizza baked in a wood fired oven. In summer the terrace is a welcoming feature as it is quite large and airy. The location of this restaurant is ideal for thos who are holidaying close to Arezzo and Siena.

“Fantastic Trattoria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

This is a great informal trattoria, we have eaten here many times over the years, as a couple, with friends and as a great big family group. Service is friendly, and the house wine (red) is delicious and yet so cheap - happy days. There is a great selection of pizzas, lovely antipasti (especially the vegetable antipasti, makes a good sharing starter) and they serve a reasonably priced but delicious looking Florentine steak. My husband was so wowed by the steak that other tables were ordering we returned on our last night of holiday for him to attempt it...and the restaurant is closed on Wednesdays! Never mind, we'll defo be back in the area and will visit here again.

“Good Food for a reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

We enjoyed a nice dinner with a remarkable house wine for a reasonable price. The grilled funghi porcine were delicious as well as the grilled mixed meat. The service was very kind and efficient. If you are in the area don't miss it!
