“Wonderful meal, friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2012

We were the first ones in the restaurant for lunch on a weekday during a recent family vacation to Italy. We were wandering around and chose this place for lunch. It has a great interior with lots of memoribilia. We order both the vegetarian and traditional antipasti for the table and it was one of the best we had during our 10 day visit to Italy - fresh veggies, meat, cheese. We could have had just that for lunch and it would have been enough! I had risotto with mushrooms, the kids had pasta, and our friends had some different roasted meats - EVERYTHING was wonderful. Fresh, well-prepared, and generous portion sizes. The place filled up with locals for lunch (always a good sign), and we were the last ones in the restaurant lingering over caffe after a delightful meal.

“Tuscan Feast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2011

An atmospheric restaurant: Our starter was wonderful antipasti, Insalata Caprese, and that followed by delicious fresh Pasta with mushrooms. The main was the Tuscan Steak accompanied by green beans and potatoes. My partner relished her medium-done portion but I had to wash down every morsel of mine with a sip of Chanti as it was too well-done. In the end, fresh fruit was delightfully refreshing. The Service was pleasing and the Prices were moderate. (Mallo)

“Great Vegetarian Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2011

Just got back from a fantastic meal. Ordered the vegetarian appetizer expecting a few soggy pieces of bread and instead got enough fantastic food for three meals. Hubby had the gnocchi with gorgonzola and walnuts. Just great! Enjoy!
