“Good food in Montalcino”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2014

My wife and I enjoyed our meal here. I had a pork dish and it was quite good. I can't remember offhand what my dear spouse had but I do know she was pleased with her dinner. The service was good, the staff was frienly, and the prices were reasonable. I would certainly recommend this place.

“Delicious Tuscan meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

We visited in off season and were pleasantly surprised by this find. The restaurant is small and simple in decor, but the food was delicious and filling. The antipasta dish of mushrooms in the Gorgonzola cheese sauce was the best of our vacation. We ate every last drop. My prima pasta was the truffle ravioli...again wonderful. The staff made us feel welcome from the start. I highly recommend this restaurant if you want a delicious, hot meal....especially on a chilly day!

“Great find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

We stumbled upon this small family owned restaurant and were very pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious and well priced. Our pasta dishes were two of the best we had while in the Tuscany area. It is not fancy but the food is good.

“Great porcini and truffles!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

Stumbled onto this restaurant while we were wandering through Montalcino.
The restaurant interior is small and plain, nothing special.
The food:
We ordered the porcini carpaccio with truffles and pecorino, it was terrific and the highlight of our meal! Hand made strazzopreti pasta came next: the pasta had a nice chewy texture and came in a wine based ragu, very good.
We ordered the tagliata Chianina rare, and that was perfectly executed.
We also had the wild boar stew, scottiglia di Cinghiale, which we were less keen on as the meat was rather dry though overall the dish had good flavor.
Wine: decent selection of wine, with emphasis on rosso di montalcino and brunellos. We had 2 half bottles of brunello from their selection.
Total bill €97 for 2, about half of which was for the wine.

“Best Brunello Risotto!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

Enchanting with the best service, try the wild boar or brunello risotto. Great wine list, it they don't have what you want they will try to get it! The restaurant is small, so at times have a wait. Make a reservation through your hotel.
