We booked Il Capriccio on the recommendation of a shopkeeper in Saturnia. Local knowledge is the best, so we bumped along a little country road to arrive. There were 8 local female villagers sitting outside chatting across the road, enjoying the summer evening, so it had a beautiful feel on arrival. The food was great, service not as good, because...

Had dinner here on a recent trip to Saturnia. Idyllic village and this restaurant is perfectly situated. Knowing embarrassingly little Italian our waiter kindly translated every dish on the menu. We had fantastic gnocchi and ravioli and the beef main was in a delicious sauce with a great bottle of local wine to top it off! Very reasonably priced and... More

This is a fantastic little restaurant in a gorgeous traditional village. The food is truly delicious and it is very competitively priced. I would definitely recommend making the trip up up the mountain ;)

Last fall my husband and I stayed at Poggio Murella near Il Capriccio. One Sunday after mass (church across from restaurant) we had lunch at Il Capriccio. It felt like we were at grandma and mom's home for Sunday lunch. The food was fresh and cooked well. It seemed like most of the diners and restaurant staff/owner knew each other.... More

A wonderful dining experience hosted by a couple whose true passion comes through in making this a place not to miss. The food was great, especially the zuppa. The homemade walnut digestif was delicioso! Dinner was topped off with the couple's fantastic singing voices making for a very fun evening.

We were staying at the Saturnia Tuscany Hotel for two nights when the hotel restaurant was closed. But it turned to great fun for us! We reached this restaurant by walking up 15 minutes the steep hill shining the flashlight. Madame of the restaurant welcomed us, a bit surprised knowing that we came by walk. The menu was written only... More
