Had dinner here on the terrace with a group of friends (10 people in all) - friendly waitress and all dishes were excellent, pasta as well as meat dishes (tagliata di manzo). Nice wine selection with a strong emphasis on local wines. Did not have dessert but everyone who did was very enthusiastic about the tiramisu. Would eat here again... More

We were 10 people with 6 teenagers and went to the restaurant without booking in advance. The waiter (and owner?) were in control but a little frustrated over our kids...happens for us as well. On the other hand the food were well prepared, great local specialities and food wise a great experience close to 5 stars. In total there were... More

Lovely food and friendly staff. Just be warned when ordering the steak that it comes less cooked than in England (so a Medium steak is more like rare!).

Never have I disagreed so thoroughly with the general level of Tripadvisor reports...this place must be deteriorating fast. We ( a group of four friends) called in to look at it several days ago with a view to reserving later in the week. Our initial impression was not favourable (empty, inhospitable, very tacky menu in a worn plastic cover by... More

The food was simple, but delicious. The kitchen overlooks dining which was nice and modern. The waitress was stiff with little personality. Owner, Stefan was more hands-on and involved than the sour server.

The service is excellent, as well as the food. I recommend the pasta cinghale! The wine selection is amazing, too. It is a little drive from Florence, but its worth the trip!

We came on Sunday lunch time. The restuarant was crowded which cause us to wait 45 minutes until we got the food we ordered. The food was cold . The tartufo pasta had very few pieces of tartufu .The steak (fillet steak ) was hard and rare instead of the medium we asked.

The location and ambience were picture perfect. Stefano and his wife (the chef) made us feel welcome and served a delicious meal that could only be done in Tuscany. Bravo! Stefano - you have created a jewel.

A true Italian restaurant with an Italian owner. Tucked away in the woods, it almost feels like a best kept secret. Very friendly staff that speaks mainly Italian but with some English words and finger pointing you will get what you want. The food is delicious and the wine menu and housemade cakes do the rest. One to put on... More
