We were staying nearby and so ate their twice. Family run with familiar faces the 2nd time. the Bruscheta was the best I ever had. The grilled meats are also fabulous with a very good charcoal flavor - we tried both the lamb and the ribeye which were excellent after eating so much pasta on this trip.

The outdoor courtyard seems very authentic and very nice. A few tourists but what appeared to be many locals as well.

This place was a wonderful surprise - we found ourselves in Panzano as part of Angie's Tuscany Wine Tours and probably found this the best meal we had in 10 days of traveling around Tuscany.

First the location: it's in a nice courtyard next to the walls of the castle, warm and sunny enough to enjoy the outdoors, but also quiet and secluded enough to be quiet and intimate. The service was warm and friendly- the owner waited on us and also brought out his own home-made wine (bottle but no label) for our lunch.

The food was everything that's good about Tuscan cuisine: an appetizer of high-quality "salumi" (salamis and proschiutto's) with bruschetta with tomatoes that just taste different than what we get in the US. We all tried different pastas and even the "standard" fare like a bolognese sauce was executed to perfection with all home-made pastas and some raviolis to die for. All-in-all: really what eating in Italy should always be like.

This place is gorgeous - a little courtyard in the heart of Panzano with covered tables. We were welcomed by the hosts enthusiastically and they continued to show us a great time - friendly and efficient service. The food was also some of the best, if not the best, we had on our trip to Tuscany. Definitely the best spot in Panzano with really reasonable prices. Will return and recommend!

To be welcomed into a cool covered courtyard on a hot day was an unexpected delight.
The garden is small but perfectly groomed, the food perfect for a hot day.Crisp crostini, pasta al dente, lots of ice to keep the wine cool
and happy smiling staff ( for a change compared to some).
The owner happily moved our table progressively so we stayed in
the shade.. the perfect pranzo.
