We found this delightful restaurant too late to visit more than twice, had we found it sooner we would have definitely eaten there every night!! On arrival at the restaurant, the place looks very unassuming but diners are treated to a wonderful meal.

The very talented chef is Sicilian and the food reflects this whilst his lovely wife charms front of house. If this great couple were to open a restaurant in London it wouldn't take long for them to gain some prestigious accolades.

We decided to have lunch in this restaurant as we were staying in the village. We werent disappointed - it exceeded our expectations. The restuarant doesnt look particularly pretty as it is situated in a modern looking building with the village store next door. But the tables are nicely laid and the chairs are modern looking and comfortable - so a good first impression.
The waitress/owner was very helpful and charming. I cant remember all that we ordered, but I do remember my home made pasta with goats cheese it was delicious - it was supposed to have augergine on it but the waitress whisked it away before the chef got a chance to add it! The omission was admitted by the waitress who had been told off by the chef - they were so sorry they didnt charge us for this dish - but it was lovely anyway! My husband ordered a pizza and my son a slow cooked cut of meat (cant remember what) which he enjoyed very much. Our starter was a taster plate of a selection of the different starters on the menu - the courgette mouse was delicious (sure it wasnt called that on the menu).

I enjoyed a glass of white wine with my meal and my husband and son shared a 75 cl bottle of 'special Italian beer' served in an ice bucket which they really enjoyed. I would love to have returned to this restaurant - especially in preferance to some others we visited but we ran out of holiday.

La Pazzetta offers a more refined Tuscan cuisine. The prizes are a bit higher than in a "normal" Tuscan restaurant, but the food is good. The only disadvantage : you can only sit outside when the weather is very good. Otherwise you have to sit inside where there are only a few tables and you don't have a view, no outside windows. You have to give it a try.

We ate several times here last year and ended up back again this year as you just can't beat the excellent quality of their food. Beautiful attention to detail and so very tasty, this restaurant is up there with some of the fancy London restaurants, yet in a lovely hamlet in tuscany! Cinzia was so helpful in catering for a dairy allergy. Well worth the money.

Four of us ate here after several recommendations, and we were suitably impressed, especially with the attentive but non-intrusive service. Every course was very good indeed, but following the trend the chocolate soufflé is every bit as good as the recommendations would indicate.
Only disappointment was they didn't have any after dinner drinks!
