My wife and I stayed here briefly as part of our honeymoon and had booked our stay on the strength of the reviews here but were really disappointed with pretty much every aspect of this B&B.
First of all, it is situated right next to a road, so any illusion of a peaceful Tuscan retreat is shattered as soon as you arrive, it's not a hugely busy road, but certainly busy enough for the traffic noise to disturb your sleep. It is also with noting that the pool is visible from the road and is heavily overlooked by the car park so it's not the most inviting or relaxing place to spend any time. The rooms are large but sparsely furnished and the bed was absolutely rock hard. We also noted that the shower in our room did not drain properly and the A/C was extremely noisy, although that did help drown out some of the traffic noise. One other point to note is that there is currently some construction going on nearby so you can hear the diggers running during the day and guard dogs barking all night adding to the A/C and traffic noise cacophony whilst you lay awake on bed that is seemingly cut from a slab of granit.
As for the food, we ate there one night and whilst the terrace is quite romantic, the food is average at best and one of our fellow diners was served some rotten lamb that had to be sent back to the kitchen. That said, the staff were friendly and helpful, so it definitely has that going for it, but, honestly, given that there are so many great places to stay in the area, this one is best avoided.
