Very good Tuscan recipes served by courteous staff. The starters were amazing as the stoccafisso - that I ordered as the main course - was. Desserts were delicious. Service was fast and attentive.

A memorable New Years Day lunch for our party of 18. Clean, authentic Tuscan cuisine. Superb wine list and excellent artisan desserts. Professional and discreet wait staff. Worth the time and the cost. Memorable.

I highly suggest for those looking for an real traditional food experience! The service was amazing and it is surely the best restaurant we have tried in the city centre. The owners are incredibly kind and the service was super!

Went for dinner and everyone loved their meal. The pasta is handmade in the morning. If they have the Chestnut gelato on the menu for dessert, be sure to try it!
