Great find in the Tuscan countryside. Dined with a group that just wanted to sample all the hors-d’oeuvres along with the local wines. Enjoyed great service as we sat outside taking in a great view along with great food and service. Just perfect!

As always, the light interior and splendid view welcomed us to C'era una volta. One will already now that the experience will be fabulous when they are surrounded by such beauty. The typical antipasto to order will be the 'misto fritto' which is a heavy but mouth watering choice. The combinations are typically Tuscan, such as fried zucchini flowers and stuffed artichoke (delicious).There is no wrong choice with choosing from this menu, everything is delicious and truly Tuscan. The atmosphere is warm and friendly, i would say that the combination of food, people and also the house wine, leave the customer with a definite happy feeling.

Food was good but service and prices were not good. Service to non-regulars was spotty at best. Expensive food and wine. There are too many excellent restaurants; skip this one.

We arrived in Fiano very late on a monday evening, everything was closed except for C'era...it was ok; good. Not ok; bad? I would go back again, but certainly not a favorite restaurant.

While staying at nearby Il Pozzo, we had a very nice dinner at this restaurant a few nights ago. The staff were friendly, service was very courteous and responsive and the food was quite good and in keeping with the quality found at other nearby osterias. They seem to be open for lunch and dinner except for Tuesday lunch.
