Well,when an ignorant foreign client of this restaurant besides me said "Tuscany is famous only for the food" , I was furious for the stupidity of the claim but she recognized the quality of tuscan food.
However it is valuable to change habits sometimes and to try something else. And this restaurant can be useful for this purpose.
We ate a delicious souce of vegetables and beans, "pugliese" bread seasoned in a particular excellent manner, tasty "orecchiette"...
We sit in a platform in front of Peccioli most important church, and the atmosphere smelt of antique beauty and marvellous relax
The price was very acceptable and the service was kind

Pecciolio is a beautiful hilltop town and is certainly worth a visit, we were recommended this restaurant as it serves other dishes rather than the normal pizza and pasta. It was a great place although was pretty quiet when we visited, I think I made a bad choice with my main and didn't really enjoy it but my husband said that his was very good. It wasn't as good as the other restaurant we visited in the town but is still worth a try, there was a sweet little dog in residence too!

This is a lovely little restaurant in the heart of the village twon of Palaia, near Peccioli, Tuscany. The food is superb and varied and the pasta was to die for! The steaks which unless you have a huge appetite are worth sharing and were excellent. The staff were friendly and halpful with meals choices and spoke reasonable English which helped. Not a lot of choice for a Vegetarian but this is Tuscany a meat eaters paradise.
Our only hiccup was on paying as they refused to split the bill into two payments (we were with friends), saying this was not done in Italy (untrue we have done this many times). We suspect it was because they did not want two credit card charges!
It wouldn't stop us eating there again but we would probably pay in cash, so beware or perhaps state at the start you require 2 bills.

Good food, but were ripped by the waitress. Selling water...tap water at $10 a litre, and then making excuses about unability to us the visa terminal machine was bad form. Seemed like they were preying on tourists. We are wise to this type of carry on, but they were very shrewd. Too bad, our service & food elsewhere over the month in Peccioli was wonderful. Needless to say we visited only once, our last time. It reflects badly on the town as they are in a prominent & visible area, I hope this was a once off.

We came to Piccioli to eat at another restaurant which was closed, then found this lovely eatery on the square in the old part of town. We agree entirely with the other ratings on Trip Advisor - Locanda dell Amicone is wonderful and well worth a visit - we would definitely come again. their Antipasti Della Casa was fantastic , as were the 2 Pastas and Aida Salad we had. We asked for the White wine if the house which was well priced and very good. Great place!
