“We went twice in a week it was so good”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

This restaurant was a special experience during our week in Montepulciano. We were so glad we followed the signs off the main street. Our meal began with a complimentary aperitif. It was wonderful opening a menu which was not traditional. The food was an amazing mix of local produce cooked and served in contemporary ways. One of the memorable dishes was rabbit with a sweet and sour sauce. Amazing and clever! The chef came to spend time with us. His background demonstrated great skills and passion. He was also an extremely generous soul. We hope to see him and his family in Noosa Heads one day. We loved the restaurant so much we went twice during our stay.

“Excellent food and great service and staff”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

Best Chianina tartare and excellent Chianina rump steak I've tasted.

Everything we ordered today was just delicious: fromt he starters to the main courses... tagliatelle with shaved porcini and truffles, spaghetti with truffles and everything else. The staff was great and service was fantastic. Always appreciate a restaurant where the chef takes the time to come around and ask the guests how was their meal. Wine list is excellent too.

Really superb service!

This is a new restaurant at the north end inside the walled city. The atmosphere is amazing ...food is outstanding. The chef is internationally trained and has created a place that is magical.

“Amazing food and service”
Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

We took a chance by heading down a side street away from the main tourist area. Glad we did as this was the most amazing place. Well worth the extra €€€

“Lovely restaurant off the Main Street”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Very nice food in an old vaulted cellar, away from the main tourist trail. Friendly staff, nice music, keen chef who came and talked us through the menu and all in all, a very nice lunch in a lovely town. Worth a 25 metre detour to get there!
