“Wonderful dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Four of us ordered the tasting menu at $30 Euros pp and it was definitely worth the money. Four lovely courses of amazing food. We would all recommend this restaurant for a special occasion. This is a small restaurant in the heart of town and was a wonderful surprise. The chef is just excellent! If you prefer to order off the menu, we also did that on an earlier visit and each meal was prepared perfectly.

“GREAT FOOD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

The owners were a young couple and you could tell they enjoyed making our dining experience delightful. The menu was somewhat limited but excellent.. One of the owners spoke a little English and provided us with a menu in English. We ate there several times and really enjoyed it. We were there in early March.

“Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

We visited this restaurant and the lovely couple twice during our holiday in July 2012. Each time, the lady of the house was concerned about her guest and the husband, Tommaso, Chef, was cooking excellent dishes. The wine card is appropriate. Excellent restaurant in this little town!

“Our new favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

The bread is homemade and delicous. The pasta is homemade and delicous. The desserts are homemade and delicous.

This is a wonderful restaurant (albeit not traditional Tuscan) with wonderful food and to top it off the young couple who own this great restaurant are charming. Tommaso comes out from the kitchen to see if the food is to your taste and his wonderful wife Mayla is adorable. We have only been back for a week and we've had lunch there twice. Open for lunch and dinner every day but Sunday.

“Once again ... special!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Tommaso has yet again exceeded expectations ... new menu, softened ambiance and a more intimate dining experience. Great new glass-enclosed wine cellar and delightful Italian music enhance the dining experience. The food is perfect ... local, hand-made and creative while keeping to the traditions of an authentic Tuscan kitchen, allowing one to savor each flavor in a dish. I enjoyed the Soppressata which was served with a bit of homemade horseradish sauce, and then a tagliatelle with truffles and three month aged duck proscuitto. Heaven!!
