We came here for dinner pretty late and there was not a lot of people here, but the place looked nice, so we sat down. My friends ordered two courses, but i was not too hungry, so I decided to only have a Main course. I received my main course when the others got their starters, which I didn't appreciated.... More

We initially popped in for coffee on a brief tourist visit to the upper town, but were impressed by the owner, his staff and the welcome we received and so decided to stay for lunch. The food was excellent and the ambience was very pleasant. The owner has a good sense of humour and was keen to make our stay... More

Spent a nice stroll around the beautiful town and finally sit for a drink and meal. Great wine, bellini & truffle raviolli. Place has a great terrace with sunset view

Had Christmas lunch there with ribollita, pici and tagliata accompanied by Chianti Classico and Brunello. Simply very well made, tasteful and nice. Merry Christmas!

Oh, yes, the food was also very good. We had lunch on the peaceful, small piazza to see local life around us. Flower boxes, a woman just leaning out her third floor window watching life go by, the narrowest stained glass windows on the small church, and a cat.

This was a very bad experience, especially compared with other experiences in Tuscany. The bruschetta was microwaved (bread tough) and the gnochetti cinghiale was also poor. The waitress had a sour look all the time and failed to attend to our needs when asked. Do not go here!

We visited Dietro last summer, so it was on our restaurant list for this year. We chose a Friday evening, to experience a busy atmosphere in the open air panoramic garden restaurant. Sadly, there were only one other couple seated when we arrived at 8.45pm and for the rest of the evening only two other tables were occupied. We could... More

Food was poor. Chicken and artichoke salad was like a sloppy and bitter pie filling. Beef cheeks were slightly better but not satisfying in the least. The shrimp ravioli unpleasant. The decor was blingy and the background music too loud

Unfortunately there was a downpour the day we ate here so we were unable to eat on their lovely patio with the view. However, we were still able to eat outside in a covered area. The staff (especially Jenn) were terrific! From beginning to end the food was fabulous - it was traditional Italian with a flair! We wished we... More
