“Disappointment”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

The restaurant was recommended by our host as the best restaurant in the area. We came at 21
o'clock. After half an hour we were told they ran out of the filet steak in balsamic sauce and the one with mushroom we had already ordered. We were offered the same only with beefsteak .the eggplant parmeggiano was not cooked enough, the crostini were not all toasted, one steak was much too salted,and they seemed not to care that we left part of the food. We ate yesterday at Carpe diem in Montaione. The food was a bit more expensive but everything was delicious.

“Good choice”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

The eggplant-parmeggiano was the best ever, so said my vegeterian daughter... We enjoyed most friendly service, excellent English, which is rare in these type of venues and very good food. Had a most interesting niocchi with pear sauce, good steaks, salads and very reasonable price.

“Fabulous Food!”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

This small, family-run restaurant is just outside of the hill town on Montaoine in Tuscany. The service and atmophere are suberb, with many local dishes such as parpardelle with boar ragu, fettucene with cheese and mushroon, and grilled rabbit available. The house wine by the pitcher is wonderful -- don't waste your money on a bottle. Make a reservation, as it fills up quickly. Yes, it caters to tourists but is wonderful. Get a seat in the open air tented area with a view of valley below.

Well frequented by locals however meals were loosely described "stuffed"...was with a hard boiled egg...bad luck if allergic to egg. Vegatables over "baked" but were pan fried.House wine "cheap" Rate 5 out of 10
