“Very good local lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

We decided for this place as it was a little off the main square and looked promising. We were not disappointed. We were treated to excellent local cuisine (fresh fish and spagetti al chianti) and very professional service. The place was very clean and staff very nice (apparently family-run restaurant), repeatedly enquiring about our satisfaction. We recommend this place for a good lunch.

“Great lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

Had a delicious lunch. Service was great and they were super friendly. When we asked for a cheese plate of the menu they made us one with local cheese made by the servers husband! A very good experience.

Went to Ombra on the second day it was opened and it was wonderful. It's great to have Michael back cooking such delicious food.

“OK Food, unfriendly people”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

The pizza and pasta were just OK. Very average.

Server and Host were both very unhappy the whole evening.

And they add 10% service charge (but they do list it on the menu).

The bill was very reasonable in the end.

A lot of locals there, and seemed to think it was a great deal.

“Best Tiramisu in the world!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

We had lunch here today and enjoyed the bruschetta and the tagliatelle cinghiale but the Tiramisu was suggested to us by the owner who promotes it as the best in the world. I have to say I agree.
