We had a really lovely meal here -great value, tasty food. Their aubergines with tomato and Parmesan was the best one I've ever had.

This was our beloved place to go after days spent wandering around Tuscany. They serve good food and wine for very good prices and the place has wonderful atmosphere (especially thanks to flowers everywhere and nice British owner). Their big plate of bruschette is a MUST!

What a shame perfect location & friendly staff . Unfortunately the worst pasta I have ever had in Italy ! My cannelloni arrived too quickly , obviously reheated in an oven , completely drowned in sauce. Looked more like soup. Maybe the British hostess believes this is what British customers want but not what you'd expect in Italy .

Hi there,
so sorry to read that you were disappointed with your food. I accept your criticism, but perhaps an alternative regional dish like pappardelle al cinghiale would have been a better choice if you are not keen on the creamy sauces. I can also assure you that the cannelloni is one of our most popular dishes, appreciated by locals and travellers alike.
The certificate of excellence has been awarded for consistently positive feedback, and is a recognition of the high standards we aspire to in our particular sector. As a casual wine bar, Fabrizio and I are proud to offer an extensive selection of local specialities, but this should never be confused with "Fine dining", and we hope our informal style and prices reflect this. We are, however, great food lovers, and regularly recommend Michelin quality restaurants to our valued customers, as we consider this part of the service.
