The restaurant has two menu's: 4 course 'traditional' menu or 5 course degustation menu. Both are super, both in flavors and looks. Kids are welcome, and treated well with a special kids selection, and they get their food before anybody else! Excellent! We sat outside in their super cosy garden, and we enjoyed every second of it! Nice wine selection.... More

Unique menu tailoring to each and everybody's needs. Enjoyed their mix tastes and textures. Their dishes combine rare flavors such as ground coffee in a pasta dish, but it is well worth it!

What a treat! There were ten of us and it felt like we went to someone's home for dinner. The preset menus were adventurous! Steak tartare with chocolate and orange shaved ice! Amazing tastes! Just go, and go often! Best experience on our journey!

Very fun and interesting meal ... tasting menu of the day seemed based on what was available .... true farm-to-table. on Sundays they do a pizza night, so the kids had pizza and we had the four course tasting. Delicious. A very good meal with great hosts!

L'Asinello was easily the highlight of our 10 day gastronomic tour of Tuscany. We were the only guests for lunch that weekday afternoon, and they told us that they often only open at lunchtimes if they have reservations.. so do book in advance. The weather was beautiful so we chose to sit outside and ordered a bottle of Rosé. Some... More

We had lunch here as part of our tour with Luca Magnoli. What a fabulous meal, we didn;t want to leave. The owners were gracious and happy to share their joy of cooking, we felt like we were a part of their family. Would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone staying in the region.
