The food and ambiance here is top notch. If the rustic food and hospitality of the Toscano region are what you are after, you will not be disappointed. The food here is top notch without the pretension. For example, they use organic flour but don't advertise it. One night, we asked for Tiramisu...they made a fresh one for us while we waited rather than say no. Lovely people, fantastic food!

The food was amazing. All home made and fresh for their own gardens.

Please make sure you just order what they suggest. They cannot speak English (which adds to the fun) but what ever they bring you will be cheap and taste excellent.

We even bought some of their home made olive oil. It was true first pressings extra virgin. You cannot buy that quality in the stores.

We loved this charming restaurant so much, we went 3 times during our week in Tuscany! Owners Vincenzo and Alma, along with a lovely waitress, Daniella, provided delicious food and friendly service. We even went there for dinner after our wedding in Massa Marittima, and by that time we felt like we were friends! There are no menus, and we ordered our meals from Daniella's descriptions. While Alma and Vincenzo do not speak any English, Daniella does, just enough to give basic descriptions. We enjoyed tortelli, stuffed zucchini flowers, pasta with wild boar sauce, several types of bruschetta, fresh soup, house wine served in a ceramic pitcher, cappuccino, biscotti. There is indoor and outdoor seating, and we had all 3 of our meals outside by candlelight. The atmosphere, food, and exceptional service will always be remembered, and when we return to Tuscany, we will be sure to make Il Corso one of our first stops!

Il Corso is a local and simple restaurant serving delicious home made food. The owners tell you what their dishes of the day are (in Italian). Homemade pasta, wild boar ragu and mouthwatering veal are on the menu (as non Italian speakers we had to guess most of the time but were never disappointed).

We can't say enough about this place other than - go! If you want to experience the warmth and hospitality of the wonderful Tuscan people, and eat food that is authentic and special, try Il Corso... Alma and Vincenzo - if you ever read this - we would like you to adopt us :-)
