Lovely dinning room with view of glassed in kitchen. Great views of the lights in the valley below. Convenient parking. It's evident that this is well run establishment from your first greeting to last goodbye, with Chef Antonio in the kitchen and wife running the dinning room. Staff is very professional, if at times a bit formal from one staff... More

We chose the two different tasting menus. The meat one was to prefer. For ne we asked the waiter to pick different wines and he did a good job. All local wines. For the 5 course set menu they added two extra courses.

We had dinner here. The service was friendly and polite, not excesively, but extremely slow. It was suprising because the restaurant was almost empty at the beginning of the night. We ordered a pasta that was quite average and a highly recommendable scaloppa di foie gras. The restaurant has a nice panoramic view but there is no wifi signal in... More

It is difficult to write another good review about Tuscany reataurants but this place is one of the best experiences one can get. Ask for Chef's Menu and get a Michelin star-alike food journey, at a quarter of the star price.

It's amazing the quality of every single dish la bistecca or the sea food or the deserts. Not mentioning the pasta it is just the experience ever. I have been four times and keep saying the top restaurant world Wide

Having had the occasion in a previous review to bewail the lack of imagination and good quality in Italian cooking generally, it has been a wonderful revelation to experience the lunch which I have just eaten today. The extensive menu offers hungry gourmets a choice of two degustazione meals for about €55 as well as a wide range of à... More

Everything was beautifully cooked and presented from the anti pasti, the pasta courses and the main plate. Will definitely pay a visit here for lunch or dinner when we are next in this part... More

I had my wedding dinner here 5 years ago, 30 people on the terrace outside in early september. It was beautiful and memorable. We were looked after graciously by Giorgio, then head waiter, and a special gentleman. Pier at front of house and Antonio in the kitchen are passionate about their restaurant, the culmination of a long held dream to... More
