“Authentic Italian experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

We stumbled upon this restaurant two nights ago (a group of two families both with young children) and we fell in love instantly. The ambiance is charming and authentic and the views are fantastic. This restaurant embodies Tuscany and every reason we decided to visit Tuscany. Anna Maria and her husband were beyond delightful and welcoming, they reminded us of a loving grandparents who instantly felt like family. The food was the most authentic that we have experienced yet -- and we've been all over Italy for the past five weeks. The highlights for food was the marinara sauce on the spaghetti (extremely fresh), bistecca (a Florentine steak that's a must-have!) and sage butter ravioli. We loved the chocolate tort and tiramasu for dessert. We even came back a second night in a row for dinner because the incredible food paired with the authentic Tuscan atmosphere made for a perfect evening.

We are from California, and although we hardly speak any Italian the people there were patient and accommodating with us! Food and family was our common language.

“Excellent lunch with awesome view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

We were staying nearby and touring Barberino val d'elsa and had lunch at this restaurant. Outdoor seating with a view of the Tuscan hills that can't be beat. Authentic Tuscan food was very enjoyable with a glass of the house Chianti! I would recommend this restaurant if you are in the area.

“Nice little place off the beaten path with good food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

We were out searching for olive oil farms and came across this tiny city over looking the Tuscan hills. The people were friendly and they have outdoor seating that looks over the countryside. We ordered the rabbit with olives and it was very good. They have wine by the half and full liter so it is fresh wine from the barrel never bottled. The service was very good and they thanked us very much for having lunch at their restaurant. The fresh fruit dessert was huge. Good place to stop.

“Delicious and authentic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

We ate lunch once and dinner twice at this restaurant. Charming. Great service, and one of the waitresses speaks a bit of English Cesare and Anna Maria work hard and clearly care about the quality of the food and service offered at the restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed every visit, and every dish we tried (and we tried many...). Wine was inexpensive and yet delicious. View from the patio is outstanding and inside the decor is so authentic it is just as enjoyable to be inside. This family run restaurant is a find!
