I had to over indulge at this spot because of how fine the food was. From the outside the stone frontage made it feel as though it would be a very quaint place. Inside felt as though i was transported back 100 years. It felt warm and inviting and we were greeted immediately at the door by the host. He... More

This was one of the best restaurants we visited while traveling around Toscana. I highly recommend this genuine Italian restaurant with its delicious meals and wine. This restaurant is a must! Make sure to make reservation if you want to be assured an amazing dinner.

The meal was wonderful - we had country artichokes, truffle pasta and beef with truffles. The chef's daughter Asia was a wonderful host who was friendly and patient. She even brought the fresh black truffles out to show us and they were so fragrant! I never knew beef and truffles could pair so well. The decor of the restaurant was... More

We stumbled onto this restaurant when out exploring Greve in Chianti. We ate outside in what appeared to us to be a gazebo-like enclosure that formerly was parallel parking for about 4 cars--overlooking the Tuscan vineyard valley below. Food was great; service was super; experience overall was amazing.

We were staying in a villa just behind this great restaurant. We visited twice, and our hosts probably 5 times! This is a family-run place and the service and food are just like you are family. Very traditional Tuscan fare, very hearty, very tasty. Such a great treat to be in this place! Thanks so much for your warm hospitality.

My experience here was far more than just food and service. The place looks out over a beautiful valley and soaking in the view, the peace, the mood of a village proud of its roots, was magnificent.

Call ahead, and make a reservation. Would recommend asking to dine outside in their covered "terrace." Delicious food, especially the flourless chocolate torte and the burrata with sliced truffles. It was one of our favorite meals in Italy. Warning - if you're driving and your GPS/directions take you a hill to a dead end (and it looks like someone's home)... More

We were lucky to be there during a warm autumn afternoon, so we sat in the outside terrace facing a stunning view of the sunny Tuscan hills. The interior part of the restaurant itself is quite small, and the terrace is across the street from it: for us it was not an issue, as there was hardly any traffic on... More

We had dinner here one rainy night in Tuscany. It was so quaint and had wonderful authentic food and great wine! We'll definitely return when we are in Tuscany again.
