“pizza”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Our group ate the worst pizza ever...you don´t expect to meet such an experience in Italy. It´s impossible to find so bad trade frozen pizza even here in Finland.

“reheated food, convenient location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

This restaurant on the main street of Buonconvento is especially handy for its location, but offers average food.

Much of what we were served seemed reheated, and although not offensively bad, I cannot remember anything particularly good, either. In short, recommended only in a pinch, or if stuck in Buonconvento; certainly not for a special meal.

Friendly service, but do try to discourage the open tax evasion when they take your money but don't leave a legal tax register receipt at the end of the meal. Ask for the receipt and they'll be obliged to ring it up for you, pay some of the taxes due and help out the Italian economy a little....

“Reheated roast potato!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel we stayed in. Unfortunately it did not really leave up to it's reputation. We both had veal, one with truffle which was reasonable but the one with the balsamic vinegar lost the balsamic part of it and at least a quarter of the meet was a chewy mess. The most disappointing part, however, was the roast potato. It was all dried up, wrinkled and tasteless, very very disappointing indeed! The dolci was OK but it was just a chunk cut on the run and no effort to present it a bit nicely. We felt that we were eating in a canteen of a big factory not in a restaurant.

“Loved this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

Having no great expectations, had a wonderful lunch here. Chose the Menu Touristica the soup was tasty, but was v. impressed with the duck. Am so often disappointed in duck, it was crispy and a v. big serve - couldn't believe it, so value was quite amazing. Each time I came near Buonconvento whilst tripping around in the car - temptation was great to return - sorry it's taken so long but had to comment. The table next to me also seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves.
Felt so comfortable sitting outside and the staff were very friendly.
