“WONDERFUL”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

It was amazing! the food was really great, very traditional recipes, the size of the portions is huge and the price it's cheap. They serve half portions as well so you can try another dish. The place is beautiful, near to other restaurants and bars in a piazza, very nice!

“Quite average, considering the price.”
Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

I was sent here by my hotel across the square, the Palazzo Guadgani. I ordered an antipasti and a primi pasta and heaps of wine.
I was sitting outside by choice, but still they couldn't be asked to bring me parmesean until I went inside to ask for it.
Food was ok, but not by far the best I've had in italy.
This venue and fine is ok, but could not recommend the dozen or so places in the area I wish I'd chosen.

“Incredible”
Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

We came to the restaurant after seeing this restaurant received "Tourism Award 2012". A friendly waitress warmly greeted us and showed us the table. Whileso, the receptionist also greeted us. All of the staff were astoubdingly friendly. We ordered foods, pasta and meat. Everything are FABOLOUS. We understand how the restaurant received the award. Everthing was perfect; the ingredients, the way it cooked, the service, the house-made wine. Highly recommeded.

Tips: Ask the waitress for the shop's speciality if you are confused of selecting. But personally, in our opinion, everything is perfect!

“Delicious fare and good service”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

We were brought to this restaurant by a local guide to have our lunch break. We were seated with a couple of families. The service was great and the server was very patient with children and the novice Americans.

The food was delicious. I especially recommend any of the house made pastas. I had a cheese-stuffed ravioli with a ham cream sauce that had just a hint of almond. We were told that the Pasta Carbanara was not to be missed. Unfortunately, they had no bacon that day.

Go for a carafe or partial carafe of the house wines. This is Tuscony and they are delicious. Not to mention that the house wines are cheaper than soda or water.

“Relaxed, easy..”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

An easy restaurant with funky, eclectic deco.. its on the piazza santa spirito which has 4 more restaurants ( also on tripadvisor's list).

Friendly staff and efficient chef who you can see through a small window, cooking with enthusiasm! The simple spaghetti with tomatoes and basil is truly delicious... just enough garlic and tossed with olive oil and tomatoes.. (leave the tabasco behind). Nice selection of rock music and italian numbers.. the toilets are supplied with automatic plastic liners on the seats!( japan style!) and the napkins are individually presented, rolled and tied with ribbons! ( talk about details man!)

Nice place to hang out with friends..
