this was quite a surprise-- its right on the main public square and recommended in one of the guidebooks so i was skeptical at best-- no more! the food is fresh, grown on thier own farm and just simply as good as it gets... a perfect lunch spot

A pretty little restaurant on the Piazza Grande at the top of the town. Nice outdoor and indoor dining. Somewhat unassuming, but the food here is not only super fresh but very tasty as well. An unexpected delight in many ways. Fast, efficient and friendly service, good prices, and excellent fresh pasta. We ate here for lunch, having the ravioli... More

Best T bone steak we had in tuscany. The millefeuille dessert is amazing. The vegetarian parmeggiana was great too Lucky that one other restaurant was full.

Delicious local cuisine. Just a few steps from our accommodation. Wine not too bad either! Friendly, and happy staff.

Family run and friendly, dinner outside, right on the Piazza Grande, at this place was tremendous. The food was simple, exceptionally flavoursome and nicely presented. The staff couldn't have been more efficient and were competent at explaining - in at least four languages from what I could hear - each dish. I'd wholeheartedly recommend this place.

Superb. Our family has been traveling throughout southern Europe for several weeks now and of all the restaurants we've visited thus far - everyone enjoyed this food most. The wait staff was kind and the location was great. Sitting outside, even on a hot summer day is enjoyable because there is shade from the buildings & umbrellas and plenty of... More

Delicious! Cozy! Pretty! Thanks. I recommended to visit and lunch try the gnocchi pesto! Whe you sit outside under the umbrella you feel the air of the town, a hundred history! Magical

Visited for lunch (without a reservation) with family (7 of us). Got a lovely table outside overlooking the Piazza. The service was attentive, courteous, friendly and helpful (we speak no Italiano!). The food was so good, small portion sizes but filling all the same and absolutely delicious - this must be the organic local produce they use! We only had... More

The food is outstanding -- amazing fresh from their garden with great flavors. Dessert is wonderful! Our waitress was great fun, helped with wine selections and (easily) convinced us to try their delicious desserts. Great location in the market square too! Swing by and make a reservation for the evening so you don't miss out!
