We have eaten here twice and find the food very good and the prices cheap. The service is friendly (the owner puts on English music for us) and the atmosphere cosy and unpretentious. We would go again.

We ate at "Il Merlo" several times over the years now. Whenever we go to Casciana, it's the only place we eat out. The food is excellent, and the wine selection impressive. Giuseppe, the owner, will help you find the wine that goes with the food you order. This summer we especially loved crostini tartufati as appetizer, pasta martelli with fresh tomatoes, basil and almonds (a kind of pesto) and the tagliata. The risotto with porcini mushrooms is always amazing. I would not recommend the pizzas: they are only average. The service is a bit slow and disorganized but the waiter (only one for several tables) is very nice and the overall atmosphere is just great.
