Very kind personnel. Strong smell of smoke from the fireplace but pleasant otherwise. Deserts were exceptionally good, far better than many dedicated pattiseries in the town.

We called to reserve a table for two, but the restaurant was closed. They decided to open for us anyway. We had the chance to eat alone the best food I have ever tasted. Everything was tasty and home made. They (the owners) were extremely friendly and we had the chance to talk with them about basically everything. They made... More

Fabulous food served here, staff did not speak much English but with help if Google translate all was well. Typical tuscan restaurant serving amazing food and fine wines. Open fire where the steaks are cooked to perfection. A little of the tourist trail but if you want to taste the real foods of the area you must visit.

We've spent a wonderful evening here in November. The waiters were very kind and helpful. The dishes were absolutely delicious, so was the wine. Definitely worth a visit!

Rolando was such a friendly host, especially for a ourselves, who speak quite limited Italian. He really made an effort to welcome us. The interior was very warm and homely and had a family feel to it. The food was excellent. We both had the vegetable set menu, which for €20 was the best priced food we had in Italy,... More

They offer 3 course meals for 20 euros. We both chose the meat version. (you can choose seafood or vegetarian as well) The meal was really amazing. It was so good that we had to try a dessert as well. We had crème brûlée and it was great!
