“Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2012

If you closed your eyes and tried to picture the perfect dining experience in Tuscany, this would be it. A tiny villa in the hills, a small, handwritten menu that agonizingly forces you to pick between 3, 4, 5 choices that all sound wonderful. The freshest ingredients and ricotta made that day. An amazing staff that understands how hard the choice has been and brings extra plates so that you can "borrow" a taste of those sitting next to you. An incredible wine list that would put any in the US to shame at a 1/4 of the cost. I will not leave this area without going back one more time.

“How a restaurant should be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2012

Classical tuscanian house perfectly renewed and placed in a wonderful environment.
The food is simply great, also thanks to the fact that the farmhouse produces many basic ingredients such as cheese and meat.
The pici al ragu are a must, but we tried almost all the menu, and everything was really high level.
Wine selection is not really wide but being closed to montepulciano and montalcino, no surprises to find mainly Brunello and Nobile.

Overall, this was a great dinner

“A true gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2011

We stayed in a local agriturismo near Asciano. My sister was staying with friends in Serre di Rapalano. We met here for dinner. The interior is gorgeous with vaulted ceilings. Everything we ate was wonderful. Eating pigeon was more of a treat than I ever expected. This is high end dining in Tuscanny at its best.
