Wonderful food, small intimate restaurant, owner/manager. Would recommend. Full of Italians, always a good indicator!

My daughter and our friends' kids claim this to be the "best pizza in the world", I'm not sure but it was extremely tasty and so was everything these chefs serve. It's all local ingredients so it's fresh and plentiful, the portions are generous and the price is low. Dishes are classic but not boring and if you've never had... More

We visited this restaurant twice during our week long stay in Loro and the food was fantastic. Every dish was traditional with brilliant bold flavour and cook beautifully, Also have a good selection of wines and the service was extremely friendly and helpful. For those that have a terrible grasp of foreign languages despite trying, such as myself, the staff... More

Really good restaurant, with good food. Used by locals, did not have a fish option on menu. Handy if you wanted a drink or two with your meal and not have worry about driving. Good value for money.

You have to work hard to grab service when it is passing here. The girls are friendly enough when they speak but do not appear very attentive. However all our food was fine when served, lovely home made pappardelle with duck meat sauce for instance. Presentation was fairly basic, no herbs or lemon etc with the famous Tuscan Tagliata that...

When we entered the restaurant there were only a couple of visitors. We had to wait for the waitress, but finally she turned to us, she asked some question and then she suddenly turned to some Italian customers who just entered. Without saying a word she left with the newcomers. After a while another waitress turned up, she asked where... More

We ate here on our last visit to Italy and returned again. The kids again loved the pasta and pomodoro sauce. We also tried the pizza. The gluten free didn't have enough cheese and didn't deliver much of a crust. Their regular pizza was very good. The desert featured a raspberry chocolate cake that was outstanding. The Panna Cotta my... More

One of the two real restaurants in the picturesque little town of Loro C, this one calls itself a "pizzeria", but twice we had excellent dinners. During our 2 visits we enjoyed 3 different bottles of wine (supertuscans) selected with a bit of guidance from the staff. I came to realize these wines were hand-picked from among some of the...

This little restaurant tucked away down a steeply sloping cobbled side street in Loro Ciuffenna was our little discovery one miserable evening in early November. It seems to be situated in an old cellar, which has been lightened with windows and white furniture. A whole wall is covered with wine bottles tucked behind wire mesh grills. Most people in the...
