Trying to find another restaurant we came upon this wonderful place down on the side street. Itwas a great find. There were 4 of us in our group and we all had different appetizers and entrees. I will tell you more in a moment. We sat outside overlooking river chasm. The staff was excellent & seemed to really enjoy working.

From the appetizers of bruscetta with pate to a sampling taste of typical Italian meats and salami as well as raviolis stuffed with pear in a light cream sauce all the way to our secondo entrees including pork and beef the meals were outstanding.

We all came to the same conclusion that this was a 5 star restaurant. When we tried to go back unfortunately it was a night they were closed.

Again great tuscan decor and delicious food. Staff were brilliant and I would have loved to go back. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. The quality was high, the price was relatively low. The only thing I would see as a negative was that the staff got a little flustered when they were busy - but again - that is to be expected and they are afterall only human.

We had two wonderful evening meals at this restaurant - one inside the restaurant with its lovely decor and one outside on the terrace, with wonderful views of Loro Ciuffenna and the river.

The food was excellent with very friendly service. We recommend the boar meat pasta! The main courses were delicious as well.

Highly recommended!

Large portions, friendly service and nice ambience. Can be busy. Not high-end but good value and selection. Good for eating with kids.

Located in heart of old Loro Cieffenna, at end of side alley but easy to find with signs. We were party of 11 so reservations were needed, these were handled with no problem at all and we got great seating on terras outside. Good variety of food on menu, good pizzas but also local food. Free wi-fi though connections inside is much better then outside.
