A group of us staying in nearby Montaione dined here on two occasions. The local cuisine was excellent, especially the wild boar hors d'oevre. The whistling owner/waiter was very entertaining. A little bit off the beaten track but well worth seeking out.

We saw on tripadvisor that this place was a bit hyped with all the good reviews. Decided to try it out and were not disappointed. Tasty meals for a relatively low price. Staff very friendly and happy. We came af 7.30 and got a table without reservation but it seemed quite busy so probably a reservation is safer. Worth visiting!

We ate here twice during our 4 night stay in Tuscany. Great food, price and service. Although there were a number of tourists eating there it was clear that it was a favorite with the locals.

Lovely outdoor table with great view. Couldn't fault the food. Amazing wild boar main dish. Very slow service with the main courses brought out at different times. We were told the chicken main course would be about 30 minutes. Unfortunately it was about 1 hour 30 minutes. However, it was one of the best chicken dishes I have tasted. The... More

Been dreaming about this kind of restaurant! Everything was great, the veal melts in your mouth, the prices are amazing and the owner... well, he should have an entertainment career, his humour is even more delicious than the food! Thank you for the great time spent there!

A proper Italian restaurant with a varied and delicious menu to suit everyone. The service was first class and the waiter added a very friendly and welcoming touch to this restaurant. If we knew about this place sooner, we would have visited it every night!

Our Italian relatives took us to their favorite restaurant for lunch. This was a unique wonderful experience. The service was very warm and friendly with wonderful local food and wine. Highly recommended.

We called in here on our first night, not really knowing the area or what to expect. We've eaten at other places since and on reflection, this was the best food at the best price with the nicest atmosphere. Highly recommend the wild boar steaks and rabbit pappadella. We will be back 😀😀😀

If you want REAL Tuscan food set in a relaxed, cheerfully noisy, colorful kid-friendly atmosphere- this is the place. We loved it so much we went back our last night in Tuscany after 14 days! The food was fresh, delicious and very reasonably priced. Andreas (the owner) adds to the charm and is a fun part of the experience. Our... More
