Recommended by a nearby bookshop and certainly was a good one. Some original cooking for example Tagiatelli with horseradish sauce, worth a try. Very friendly service, good wine list and plenty of space.

This is a truly hidden gem (the term is so overused but in this case is true). Don't be put off by the unassuming exterior - there are two lovely vaulted cellar rooms below. Very relaxed atmosphere.
And the food.
We ate there three times in our visit and every starter, main and dessert was outstanding. Truly Tuscan food. House wine is good too.
BOOK!

The place is small, no English menu, no English speaking waiter, but the food is really tasty, cheap, perfect for a quick and very good lunch. You should go there to live the local cuisine !

Surprising dishes made with recipies centuries old. I loved both courses I had.
I had a glass of red wine too. Wine was good, but a little too warm. Must say that it was a very hot day. Probably the wine was just at the ambient temperature, wich was too hot this day.
The service was fast and friendly.
Overall, I loved the place.

After trying every generic BIsteca and pasta and pizza, this place comes like a blessing. If theres a word to describe it, it'll be smart. In every sense: decor, wine list and –specially– the food. Again, this place is everything but generic. The menu goes from really nice pasta, beautiful bisteca or Wild Boar cooked on a chocolate stew (sort of an italina rendition of a Mole Poblano). You can really feel there's an author behind every dish. This place, located on a small street away from all the noise, would definitely please everyone, from adventurous gourmands to tourist tired of paying for pricey mediocre italian food. Oh, yeah, and the price: I left leave the place so satisfied, and payed so little, that I almost fell I had robbed them.
I'm guessing reservation is mandatory.
