“Great food, great location - a Tuscan Delight”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Restaurant is located on a hill (up a long lane - lined with Cypress trees) approximately 5 km from San G.
We ate here twice - once was pizza's - excellent and the other time was meats - equally good.
Prices are reasonable!
Husband and wife team do the cooking and serving and are very friendly!
We had seen the place when driving back from Pisa and decided we were better off eating outside the wall of San G.
You won't be disappointed!

“STRANGE PLACE”
Reviewed September 7, 2011

Arrived on spec as4 adults and toddler, plenty of tables as early evening 6.45. dont know what was going on this evening but seemed like no proper staff , had to ask for menus after 10 mins wait. No service for further 20 mins not even drinks.Eventually some action in what seemed like a lone waiter/owner not dressed for part arrived at table with some glasses ( dont know what for as still no order taken after 30 mins in restaurant. All be it accidently in haste he then proceeded to smash a wine glass all over the table with a piece landing on the toddlers arm Another waitress then seemed to appear out of the blue behind him but with no effort to sort out the mass we had had our bellyfull by then and walked out. What a shambles.

“The food and location were simply amazing”
Reviewed August 18, 2010

The location of this restaurant is idilic, and the food was absolutely delicious.

I would give this restaurant 5 stars based on the food alone, but the staff were lovely and the scenery beautiful.

I would highly recommend this restaurant.
