“Five dinners - all good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We ate well every time. Differently every time. Wide selection, with local specialities and using locally sourced ingredients.
Waiters very informative and helpful

“Good service, decent food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Had a four course dinner as part of a spa package. Was better than I expected. Service was good, food was tasty and presented well, wine selection was good. The meal lasted three hours which was eating fast by Italian standards. You are supposed to relax, take time to chew and enjoy the food. People who complain service was slow don't understand dining in Europe. They finished off dinner with a shot of Limoncello courtesy of the house. Dined in the outdoor section which was furnished appropriately. The trattoria was full but the noise level was low. I would dine here again if in the area.

“Best restaurant we've been in Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

Very friendly employees, great food, amazing wine, authentic Italian atmosphere. If we'll ever be close to San Quirico, we'll come back here.

Be aware of the desserts,they are SO GOOD.

“Food could be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

The restaurant has a lovely outdoor setting, the staff is very attentive however the food lacked deep Italian flavours that we found in other places. My beef ragu pasta was very plain with three tinny pieces of beef, I can honestly say that my home made ragu has more flavour. What a shame.
