A truly memorable experience. Excellent food, good service, quintessential Tuscan ambiance, and the owner and his wife were gracious, attentive hosts. Our favorite restaurant in Tuscany.

The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was very, very good, and the owner made us feel special. He fed our three year old and gave her a surprise when she finished her food. We will definitely go back!

So many of the reviews we had read about this restaurant seemed to focus on the personality of the owner rather than the skills of the chef that we wondered what we would find. In fact, we found that the food was very good, the service was efficient but not very friendly, the owner was surprisingly quiet and the ambience very ordinary. Maybe we chose the wrong day to visit but, we were just a little disappointed that such a highly-rated restaurant didn't seem at all special to us.

Very friendly. The owner was so excited that the first of the new olive oil had arrived and went table to table gifting all diners with a pot of freshly made cheese with his new oil poured on top. That personal touch was just the beginning. I ordered a pasta dish with mushrooms. Just melted in my mouth.

Several months ago Newsweek magazine published the101 best restaurants in the world rated by some of the top chefs in the world. So the 6 of us expected a dinner of a lifetime. The food was very good though not the best in Italy and certainly not the world! The owner was very friendly and a bit theatrical but after his fuss over us, the service was rather ordinary and the staff not particularly friendly though efficient. The ambiance has loads of charm and warmth. I think the restaurant is resting on its laurels as one of the best worldwide.
