“Authentic Tuscan Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

We stayed up the road at one of the farmhouses on the I Lami Estate. Our hostess suggested we try this restaurant, which doesn't have regular hours, and called to order dinner for us. Service was excellent even though no one spoke a word of English. The food was an experience - the real thing. Grown or shot right on the estate which is part of a wine/olive oil estate and hunting preserve. One of the best meals of our trip to Italy - from the authenticity and locally grown aspect. We were absolutely stuffed. Wine, coffee and dessert is included in this multi course meal. Fabulous!

“Memorable experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012 via mobile

This was a great experience. The place is not easy to find ... Once there, you will experience the local traditions. There is no menu ... You eat what the chef has prepared. Previous rater is 100 percent right - the quantity of food is amazing. We started with an anti pasti buffet which was followed by three types of pasta, two meat dishes and dessert. All was delicious. Advise that u ask for time between dishes or they will serve very fast. It can get noisy though, so not the place to go for a romantic meal. Red wine is good, you need to insist a bit to have white ! Advisable to book in advance.

“Hunters heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2012 via mobile

This resteraunt specializes in meat , meat and meat.

Only open on certain days, weekends mainly we were lucky enough to eat there last night, Wednesday. It is by booking only and brings new meaning to the word rustic.

A hunters lodge which converts the kills into a carnivorion delight.

Be warned , go very very hungry. The meal comprises 8 courses all made and prepared on the premises. It is a 3 hr sojourn ... And you need every minute to deal with the courses.

On the table is a bottle of house red made on the premises, or by nearby couldnt quite get the transaction .

Course duck liver pâté on buschetta ( we think duck anyway)
Home made brawn or speck .... Not sure on Origen

Then 3 pasta courses , the best lasagne ever , no cheese just meat ragu rabbit / chicken and boar

The wide pasta name not sure with wild boar meat sauce
Thick thick spaghetti with duck meat sauce

Then spiced boar ribs and chunks of beef stew with mushroom

At this stage we were done, would suggest in retrospect not wolfing down all the pasta!

Followed by crumbed lamb chops, florentine steak strips with onion rings and roast potato chips.

Finished with tirimasui .
Superb!!!

2 bottles of wine , 2 bottles of water and all the above for 2 people total bill e63.

Spectacular experience well recommended
