We sat inside as it was a bit cold on the terrace. But had a look at the terrace and it looked great. Food was great at the restaurant all the starters were really nice especially the seafood platter and the parma ham and melon. Price was really reasonable especially for everything we had, we also had a bottle of... More

The food was good, but the view from the terrace was amazing! Pay the extra two euros and sit outside on the terrace. I had the Boar Bolognese and the veal scallopini with mushrooms, both were excellent. The house red wine (Chianti) was not exceptional, but I am an oenophile.. .

We really loved our meal at la Vecchie Mura! We were lucky to have a table as we arrived early, because normally you always have to reserve in advance as this is a really popular spot at sunset (and I understant why!). We tried the wild boar, and woah that was a really good discovery. Otherwise, I would say that... More

We hadn't made a reservation and had to wait for a table inside. It was getting a bit chilly so we didn't mind missing the view. Even so we had a fabulous meal, served efficiently. Nice to see the open kitchen.

This was a return trip to this restaurant for us. We had fond memories of eating here on our last trip to Italy, and we were not disappointed. We had made a reservation in advance (which you should do...and ask to be seated outside). We had a lovely table on the balcony overlooking the beautiful tuscan countryside. The food and... More

Try to claim a front row seat on the terrazzo looking out over the lush farmlands as the sun is setting. The outdoor seating gets chilly later in the fall after sunset but still a memorable dinner evening. The indoor room is cozy and open-air kitchen. All food choices are perfect. We had several over our week long stay. We... More

The views from the terrace make for a spectacular evening - but make sure you book a rail table and make sure it is earlier enough in the evening to get the full benefit before the sun goes down. It is hard to see how anyone would be disappointed by the location. The menu has a mix of tempting dishes... More

Obviously I expected to much from this restaurant, everything what we ordered (rabbit meat,deer meat, tagliata,lamb roast, and bye the way everything was recommended by the staff)everything was poor quality, we back 75% of the food but they charge us everything. Sad but true

Making a reservation is recommended especially when you want to experience the view during dinner, but walk ins are excepted as well when possible. When you have dinner on the terrace an extra fee is charged, not much, but it is charged. Blankets are available if needed so you don't have to get cold when enjoying dinner at the terrace.... More
