“The best steak”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

We visited with an Italian relative and were impressed. This is a local restaurant so not a lot of tourists. The staff were very friendly but overworked. The food was excellent and the steak was the best in Italy so far. However , service was very slow. They did keep giving us bread baskets full of tasty break so they get points for this. They did explain they were busy and apologised for this. So if you have time then try this one out for a good meal at great prices.

“A dinner from heaven”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

We found this recommendation here on Tripadvisor, we watched the photographs and we decided to give it a try. And it was a blast! We already spent so many vacations here in Italy, but we never had a dinner like this.
The staff was so kind and friendly, although we do not speak much Italian there was no problem with ordering and finding the right selection of food and vine.
We had the starters plate and this already blew us away, followed by some spaghetti with just garlic and oil and some chili pepper. Absolutely delicious!
And then the crown, the mixed platter of steaks, prepared and served by the chef himself, thin slices of quality meat on very hot plates where you can cook it to order. A phantasmic experience and all together at a reasonable price.
The Chianti rounded it all up.

Meal and service is great. I asked them a last minute request and they have managed to find a birthday cake. I would highly recommend...
