“Great Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

The food and wine were excellent. The service also. Great atmosphere in a small restaurant. Right in the middle of the delightful village square

“Good Tuscan food, average service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

We wandered into this restaurant when we discovered the restaurant we intended to try was unexpectedly closed. We had no idea what to expect, but found the food and wine to be surprisingly good. The Tuscan antipasti plate was excellent, and the pasta dishes solid but not outstanding. Service was a little slow (even for Tuscany) and reserved. Overall we had a good but not great experience. The location is in a charming, small, and quet piazza in the center of Castelnuovo Berardenga. I would recommend other restaurants in the area ahead of this one (Osteria Alla Villa, La Locanda di Tomasso), but it is a good option for simple Tuscan food in a quiet atmosphere.

“A depressing evening”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

Judging by other reviews given for this restaurant we must must have picked an off-night. Staff were cold and unwelcoming and we were made to feel as though we were an intrusion on their evening. Very uncomfortable evening though food was good.

“Best food so far...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

Ok, we have only been in the area for 3 days but the food at this restaurant really stands out and reminds us of the best food we had last year in Umbria. 2 of our party had the ravioli with sage and butter and it looked and tasted divine. Only had Tuscan antipasti but that was also delicious. We will definitely go back, as the service was also good and they have outdoor seating in a nice location.
