“Great Bar-B-Q Comming from a TEXAN !!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

We heard about this while staying at a resort near Vicchio, a couple of fellow Texans said we had to try it out. I went in there expecting it to be ok but when I left my opinion changed greatly. When we sat down they gave us Salsa---- this was nice because we had not had any for several days and we are from San Antonio- Its in our blood. Next we talked to the owner and he was nice and very excited to have a Texan try there food. We had the ribs and the Brisket --- both were better than i could have imagined and i would say better than most BBQ places here in Texas. We then met the Pit Master who is from California--- He was very humble and even asked our opinions on the taste--- I gave him my opinions on a couple of things and he was very receptive and took what i said to heart. In the short time we were here we made two great friends and hope that when they come to Texas again we can have them as our guest for a couple of days and take them to some of the best BBQ places in the world so that they can get some more ideas. I wish them the best and know that Dads bbq will take of in italy. It is a big risk introducing this food into the tuscan country side and they are doing justice to not only the Cooking of BBQ but the culture and atmosphere that it brings when eating it. I cant wait to make it back and they added a great story to our honeymoon. Thanks guys and we wish you the best.

Thanks N Gig'em from the two Texas Aggie honeymooners. !!!!!

“BBQ in Italy?!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2011

Wow, whod a'thunk? It was nice to find an "American" place to try while in Italy, and this place was it. The host is great and helpful and brave to undertake BBQ in a small Italian town. It was a nice mix of TX, SC BBQ (not quite what we were used to from the north east-we eat more saucey, usually) but it was good. the onion rings were authentic and the pie was nice!

“ideal american italian fusion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2011

We found the restaurant on our wine trip in Tuscany. We were looking for a pizza that night but found something much better: American barbecue in Italian style. Very friendly owners treating the business like a hobby and pleasant staff. Good wine from Chianti Rufino winery.
