We ate here twice in two weeks. The first time one of our group couldn't make it, so we returned just so she could experience the place. Up in the foothills above Pistoia, this place has mushrooms from the forest right there. Cinghale that was unbelievable. The owner (and little chef Leonardo) were incredibly friendly and welcoming. I had stag on his recommendation and was surprised at how delicious it was. Try the cheese antipasti with prosciutto and tomatoes. Everything we had was great. They don't take credit cards (which we didn't know the first time) so we asked the owner for a wine recommendation that wasn't too expensive. He steered us to an incredible Sangiovese that was around $20. It's worth the drive.

We had a party of 6 with everyone ordering different things to eat. Vegetable soup was to die for. Pasta with truffles was the best ever. Fried rabbit was better than excellent. Service was fantastic, staff had a great attitude. You could not find a more friendly place to enjoy lunch or dinner. The mixed grill was excellent. My wife and I shared both the premmi and second. Way more food than we could eat. When we finished the owner brought out lemonchello, grappa, and vinasanto in bottles, you could have as much as you want. Upon leaving, he gave us home made biscoti and each couple a bottle of wine of the area. You are nuts if you don't try this place. Open only on weekends after October.

Worth the drive up the mountain from Pistoia. The owner and his wife do a wonderful job serving a variety of food in an interesting setting. We had rabbit, deer, lamb and a variety of appetizerd and pastas.
