Excellent surprise at the side of a road in a small hilltop Tuscan village with very friendly staff and excellent food served at a leisurely pace in a small garden with six tables, surrounded by tons of plants and flowers to the sounds of soft...jazz. Recommend to start with the grand meats and cheeses followed by the pici pasta with black pepper and cheese, of course with a carafe of red wine! A great nearby meal to the San Galgano abandoned abbey. Parking in the back. Highly recommended.More

We had a delicious and incredibly good value dinner here . The tagliatelle with porcini was sublime and the steak was very good . This is small family run restaurant and was recommended by our hotel . Service may be a little slow as only...one person serving but well worth having dinner here .More

Food is quite delicious. I think is family owned and run restaurant. The place is a gem especially the garden outside. They are a bit disorganized and people of the same table do not get to eat at same time. Expect to wait quite a...bit for your food. But definitely worth waiting for.More

Had a phenomenal lunch! The food is all sourced locally or out their garden. The menu is decently priced, and has a great selection. It's well worth a visit if you are passing by. The terrace is amazing!

Se went there gir Easter Day lunch. The place is small and very well managed. There are few table and the suggestion is to book in advance. The meals are prepared by the ladylord herself with passion and love. You can far the real tuscanian..."cucina". The price will be very reasanable. Great. Go there.More

When you think you are getting lost in the most remote hills of Tuscany - then you are getting close to Dai Galli. It´s in an historic house of Ciciano - magnificent flowers and herby have been planted by the grandmother. The daughter - Chef...and Lady of the House - prepares from the fresh, seasonal vegetables, fruits and spices legendary dishes - all rooted in Tuscany. Her English and German might help some guests in reflecting with her on the essence of Cooking. The friendliness of the people, the passion for what they do ... it´s a blessing for us living in Tuscany. Meet you there!More

We went there twice with our son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter 7 months. Firstly, the staff were extremely helpfull with organising a baby chair including a table for her to play on. Then on to the food. Excellent....Excellent....Excellent. We had several different dishes. The local pasta,...the local nuddle, I think it was called, tomato soup, green peper steak, rabbit etc. Do not miss the rabbit even though all the dishes were great and tasty. My wife and I will be back tomorrow for the third time!More

Very pretty little restaurant filled with flowers in the tiny village of Ciciano. The owner is a charming lady who speaks English, German, Italian, you name it! Our food was incredible - my highlight was the homemade pasta filled with gorgonzonla and parmesan in a...sage and walnut butter sauce- absolutely incredible. I wish I could have eaten here everyday :)More

Having arrived at our remote hill-top rental house only 40 minutes before a reasonable time for dinner, the only realistic option was the trattoria in the village at the bottom of the hill. And what a terrific find! Our hostess Dominique was charming, informative and...passionate about her food. Since we were on this occasion the only diners in the house, we had her uninterrupted personal attention and we are now experts on the amazing geo-thermal systems that generate electricity and provide communal heating to all the surrounding villages. But most importantly we enjoyed an evening filled with tasty, honest local dishes which were well prepared and attractively presented. Of special note was the wild boar ragout with ratatouille which would alone be worth returning for. Unfortunately that afternoon Dominique was catering for an event elsewhere so she was 'out of stock' of her signature meatballs which we look forward to enjoying later in the week.More

Simple restaurant with interesting Tuscan food Two of us had mushroom and Ceci soup and one had pici, home made spaghetti with tomato sauce. We all had the stewed chicken with a side dish of peppers. Good and very reasonably priced.
