This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we weren't disappointed. As seems to be the case with most restaurants in Italy, if it's off the beaten track it's probably really good! Down a little lane away from the main square, we were treated to a couple of fantastic pasta dishes and some Brunello for half the price of our... More

I waited several years to be able to visit this restaurant and eat here. I sampled three different appetizers. VERY GOOD. I can't wait to return.

We were here 3 years ago and it was a highlight of our dining back then. We came back and were not disappointed - wonderful! Highly recommended - including the Orecchietti and the Gnocchi. Wine list is fabulous and a great selection. Staff will help choose the best option price-quality.

Cute restaurant but the food was very disappointing. The tomato bruschetta had too much (overpowering) garlic while my pasta was with acid truffel oil and mushrooms from a jar tasting heavily of vinegar. Wine too was poured to the exact millimetre seemingly discouraging any further drinking. Staff too was distant and slightly arrogant. Not impressed.

I ordered the Toscana sausages and beans which at first didn't look like much but they turned out to be the best sausages I have ever had. The owner Luciano knows a great deal about wine and can also sell good quality eine from his cellar. I recommend this for dinner or lunch any time

Very sympathetic staff and lovely food! Very nice view over montalcino just from the entry of the restaurant. Try the beef cheek in brunello sauce

We were very fortunate to be able to find a table for our group consisting of 10 adults and 1 child without a reservation. The food is delicious and the wine list is extensive. As in many places in Italy, the service could have been quicker but it was worth it by the time the food arrived on the table.... More

This has inevitably became a tourist attraction but the food is great and it's definitely worth a visit. Service can be slow, reservation is highly advisable. Superb choice of fine wines.

My wife and I had a nice dinner here. The pasta was fantastic and the wine menu is 35+ pages. The owner was very friendly and helped make a great recommendation of wine. Nice, easy to find location in Montalcino
