Acquacotta was recommended to us by our Airbnb hosts. We stopped in on a Tuesday evening around 8 pm. We didn't have reservations but we were seated immediately. We started with the Wild Boar pasta and had we stopped there we would have been happy but we continued on the the Florentine Steak and were amazed! It's a little pricey... More

I have visited this restaurant three times within four months - twice it was 5 stars once it was three so what do you do? We figured it out after last week - fish is not the real thing at this place. But when we kept to vegetable and meat it was awesome, great cooking, renewing the Tuscan kitchen with... More

Great family run place, typical Tuscan style restaurant, with a huge amount of choices at reasonable prices. Went with family of 4, two young kids, and everyone loved it. The staff were super friendly and attentive, going out of their way to offer food that was not even on the menu to ensure our children were happy and well fed.... More

Had delightful pasta for lunch with a bit of wine, followed by dessert. The service was exceptional and friendly, and the food was incredible and and not too expensive. We would definitely recommend them to anyone.

The pasta was uncooked, there was sand in the salad , the rabbit tasted very bad and it was full of bones. The worst restaurant ever! I'm Italian and feel very bad when I found this kind of quality in my country.

After reading rather glowing TA reviews perhaps we were expecting more. I want to give it excellent mainly because of the very friendly welcome and service but it should be because of the food and the food was just average. Expecting cosy but walked in to a quite brightly lit and decidedly chilly room. We started with octopus salad and... More

We didn't have reservations, but lucked out finding this place on a Sunday evening precisely when it opened around 6 pm. We were met by a very nice woman who said as long as we could be out by 8 pm we could eat. And eat we did. We had a a wonderful meal. We started out with a octopus... More
