The real La Mama kitchen

Ate here almost every evening of our vacation. Very simple seating, but great food, best to reserve, in the evenings often full. The owner, Andrea, is your singing waiter. Superb wild boar and suckling pig. Good that I do not live nearby, would eat there every evening.

We're a family of 4 adults and we stopped in as were staying close by at Belmonte Vacanze and based on TA recommendations. Wow! Such outstanding food for such a great price, and wonderful service! The owner is a happy guy who loves to chat with English-speakers. We LOVED the mushroom soup and the lasagna, also th Tuscan stew with... More

Rather off the beaten track, this restaurant was close enough to our holiday residence that we wanted to give it a try, especially in light of the many positive reviews. We were not disappointed. The food is delicious, especially the mushroom soup and the grilled lamb, and the service is very good, not least because the proprietor seems to love... More

Small, bustling, local flavor. Delightful meal. We ate here with 2 other couples and had an excellent meal. My husband's lasagna was the BEST. Also my onion soup starter was excellent. I had the house pasta with was good and spicy. The others in our party all seemed to enjoy the meal. They serve bread and olive oil also. We... More

Great food..... great atmosphere...... funny owner :) Unfortunately, we find it's kinda in a secluded area to get to (had to pass through a tiny road in the woods, kinda creepy). However, we still recommend this place.... it's worth the drive!

very good service and very nice food in reasonable prices. For main course we ordered 4 meat dishes. The cooking was fantastic and so was the salad we shared. The only thing that needs improvement is the desserts. We tried 3 different ones but neither of them was good enough to remember of.

While we were searching for a restaurant we found this Osteria in San Vivaldo. While not expecting to much we were positively surprised. The food was very good but what was really amazing was the friendliness of the staff. If you have kids and are in the area of Montaione have lunch or dinner at this Osteria. Your drawing might...

We enjoyed a lovely meal here. The food was tremendous, the staff were welcoming and friendly and we fully intend to return before heading home. Menu has absolutely something for everyone. Staff were tremendous with our grandchildren I would recommend any family looking for somewhere to eat out near Montaione look no further than Osterria Ristorante San Vivaldo .

Quirky little place with a vast menu of Tuscan delights and a one man entertainment show which is the owner. We all tried different things and all came away more than satisfied with our meals. The owner cracked us up with his whistling and he kept the kids very entertained throughout the meal. The restaurant itself is like dining in... More
