Call in advance - i was there waiting and the restaurant was closed with no notice (monday). However, i saw the menu...you can choose typical Tuscan dishes, but the prices are pretty "salty" for the ambient and location, which are both nothing really mind blowing.

Very rustic restaurants right off the road, parking was in a little gully. The Bisteca Florentine was... More

This place was wonderful. The service was incredible, we told the waitress we were gluten Free and she went through everything that we could eat. She said usually it is best to call ahead as they can create more options but as there were already gluten free customers who had called ahead, we had many options including the most amazing...

We went there as a small group and we tasted almost the full menu. All was delicious and the portions where big. As suprise, the price was low and we had a lot of good local wine and limoncello. We could sing italian songs and play music and even the owner joined us to enjoy. The garden in the forest... More

On vacation, heading out from Manarola in Cinque Terre for 4 days in Tuscany. Driving by noticed this restaurant and decided to give it a try. First off no fish, my Italian is very limited and at first mistakenly thought filet was filet of fish. Luckily they were very accommodating and had a delicious lasagna they cooked up with pesto...

We ended up going back a few times during our stay in the area and if this was in our neighbourhood, I would eat here every day!! Wonderful service, great wine selection, good... More

We stumbled across this restaurant by accident and were glad we did. The ambience is basic but it appears to be a place where the locals flock. Food is excellent and reasonably priced. Ilaria the owner/chef is charming if you get a chance to meet her. We went back twice we enjoyed this restaurant so much. My wife and I... More
