The service was very good and helpful. We just wanted a main meal and enjoyed tasty dishes well presented and of adequate quantity.

My wife and I ate dinner here on a 3 week trip so we had plenty of context for comparison. This restaurant is relatively inexpensive but the quality food is nothing special. I wouldn't go back but I wouldn't say stay away. The stew we had was very good, peppery, tasty, rich but the tomato bruschetta was probably the worst I ever tasted - bland tomatoes on stale bread. The Olive Garden does it better.

We came on the recommedation of out hotelier, who advised us that restaurants with hand written, limited menus and without people attempting to drum up business or photos of the food are the places to go, which confirmed my previous experiences of trattoria/osteria style eating. A friendly waiter showed us to out seats in a small but pleasantly rustic room. Service was well timed and surprisingly attentive considering there was one waiter and one chef for a restaurant with about 30 guests. The 26oz T Bone steak was certainly the highlight - perfectly cooked, perfectly seasoned, and reasonably priced at €28. And considering half a litre of good wine, some sparkling water, a cheese plate for two to share, a potato side (which I didnt need), and my fiancée's very tasty goat's cheese pasta dish only took the bill up to €51, it was very well priced. No 'coperta', 'servizi' or bread charge, with our digestif of Amaro gratis, was a refreshing change.

This meal was disappointing. The spaghetti all'amatriciana was a bit watery and bland. The ravioli with osso buco ragu was slightly better. The waiter was friendly and the clientele boisterous. Overall it was very fairly priced, just not that tasty across the board.

Great little unassuming trattoria with really hearty authentic Tuscan food. Had typical Tuscan antopasto with mixed salumi and cheeses, lasagna, and cantucci+vin santo for desert. Service was good. Very small place with small tables, but clearly a place where locals go. Not for those looking for a fancy experience but rather a nice home cooked meal.
