The service was slow but friendly. The food was excellent and the Tournedos tender and tasteful. The whole family was very happy, except mr T who was forgotten with his salad.

A few people told us it was expensive. Not so. It was a fabulous value. Great food and wine and the owner was delightful. Wonderful views.

We visited in mid September and it was very quiet. The food was excellent. The service a little stand-of fish but still good. It was nice to be greeted by the complimentary prosecco and crisps in English. Our son had the pizza, which was excellent. Hubby and I had the crepes and pasta with cream sauce to start and both...

Great view of the valley in Montaione. Friendly staff. Wonderful food and great hospitality. We stopped in the afternoon and the restaurant was not yet open for dinner, but the staff took great care of us! Wonderful stop. Parking lot adjacent to the restaurant which was so convenient!

We ate in this restaurant twice during our stay in Tuscany. Beautifully & tastefully decorated with great table settings and good views. Not a huge menu but enough to offer a choice of beautiful meals - the steak with porcini mushrooms, the orata fillet & beef with balsamic vinegar are amazing. Attentive service & great food well worth the price... More

The food here was very tasty and our starters came quite quickly. Unfortunately we then had to wait about an hour and a half for our main course. Although this was tasty it was not worth the wait. After waiting so long we decided not to order dessert.

Had a fantastic plate of spaghetti with mussels. My entree of dory filet topped with porcini mushrooms could have been great, with a little lemon (my passion). Our house wine worked well. Wished we had gotten some complimentary limoncello at the end, but the prosecco before the meal was nice. The room itself got very warm and we were so... More

This restaurant is just a bit of a walk from the city center, but worth it for a change of pace. There are limited options in this little town, but this is one of the best. The food was excellent. The service was OK, but not great. It might be a little pricey for the locals, who were not there... More

Booked for 8 people on a Sunday night and after reading Trip Advisor was a little apprehensive. How wrong were we, no sooner were we sat down then a glass of Prosecco arrived along with Canapés. We all found something we liked on the menu, service was prompt and the wine flowed! House wines were lovely and we sampled many... More

Very tasteful food and good service. Spaghetti with mussels and sweet tomatoes was very good. Tiramisu was also very good. We got a free limoncello after desert.
