Lovely views from inside and out - great, reliable kitchen - friendly, welcoming staff. I have gone a number of times when I find myself in the area for lunch. Certainly one of my favorites, and I'll return. Great pizzas in the evenings with a downstairs 'cantina' that also attracts lots of fun locals!

An outstanding meal with beautiful views from the the upstairs outdoor terrace. Spaghetti flambe', their signature dish, was a great first course.

This restaurant was very close to our villa which made it even better. The food and service here were impeccable. Try the flambé spaghetti which is cooked in a hollowed Parmesan cheese wheel, amazing! Well worth a visit.

Lovely restaurant with great food. Ate here 3 times while on holiday in the area, once for lunch, once for dinner in the pizza place downstairs, and once for dinner in the main restaurant upstairs. Good service, good wine. Had the opportunity to try some of the local speciality cuisine here. Not to everyone's taste but good to try the local cuisine. Pasta and pamesan dish stole the show, the chef cooks your dish inside a hollowed out aged parmesan, yum!

Excellent food, excellent service ans great views over the hills. Whilst on holiday in Gaiole we ate here twice and had excellent meals on both occasions. The wine list is extensive with lots of local choices.

It is worth noting that it is actually quite difficult to find, situated at the end of a rough track. If you can't find your way make the effort to ask for directions!
