This is where the locals go. Superb and lovely friendly owners. Try the pizza with porcini mushrooms and also the fried porcini mushrooms as well as the fillet steak done in balsamic vinegar. Delicious!!

This restaurant was recommended to us by one of the waiting staff at a local cafe/bar and it certainly did not disappoint. On our first visit we ate the Florentine steak with grilled vegetables and roast potatoes which were delicious. As well as the home made bread we were given a small bowl of couscous and after our main course... More

My husband and I enjoyed a delightful dinner at il Gatto Bianco last night. We were treated to the Tuscan tomato soup, which was outstanding. Then we shared excellent Tuscan style mixed crostini. But the showstopper was the wonderfully prepared and presented T-bone steak Florentine style with roast potatoes and grilled vegetables. Accompanying all this glory was a great Chianti... More

My husband and I visited this based off the reviews and it was not a disappointment! The staff was friendly and gave us complimentary pumpkin soup which was awesome! I had the spaghetti carbonara and my husband had the ravioli, both of which were out of this world! Would come here again, any day!!

This isn't a fine dining place (but it's pleasant). There was a big screen TV with music videos playing a bit too loudly. We only ordered wine and pizza, but by the time we left had also eaten delicious pumpkin soup, freshly made biscotti with sweet wine, and limoncello. These extras were all "on the house." We had a wonderful... More

Although this restaurant was recommended to us as a pizzeria, we did not eat pizza here. The carpaccio, black mussels, and Italian meat dish were truly delicious! Very nice and attentive staff. They even told us not to order too much, because the dishes are abundant. And so they were! The recommended wine was good too, although I forgot the... More

Both the pizza oven and the kitchen are open till the small hours. That' s a better alternative to Street food joints ; you can sit down and choose from a menu and be served . My group had pizzas, from a nice and wide choice ; but I also saw fish plates at our neighbours ' tables. Pizza +... More
