very good thin crust pizza and the waiter speaks English. The pasta is ok for Italian standards, good for the rest of Europe standards. I had the truffle with spinach ravioli. If you are traveling with children, this is a good place to go. There is also a nice ice cream shop next door for dessert.

We ate at Casa Matta three times during our seven day stay in Tuscany. First we had the pizza (traditional thin and thicker neapolitan style. Both were excellent with good ingredient choices including an option to upgrade to mozzarella di bufala. The second time we visited we had two pasta dishes - penne in cream sauce with peas, ham and mushrooms, and tagliatelle with meat sauce. We also got insalata mista (simple salad with butter lettuce, radicchio, cucumber, tomato, and onion). All was well prepared and satisfying. The last time we visited was late (around 10:30) on a Friday night. The restauranted was empty and the mop buckets were out. We were informed that only pizza was available although we had arrived specifically for beef as it was our last night in Tuscany. Our server checked with the owner(?) and we were good to go. My spouse had the chefs steak(?) which was a sliced steak drizzled with balsamic vinegar and a side of marmalade of onion, something, and olive oil. I had the bistecca alla fiorentino which was huge and magnificient. Great food and superb service. The owner(?) gave us a homemade biscotti on the way out (but one - not to be missed). Oh, I almost forgot about the casual atmosphere and very reasonable prices. It's a must-visit if you're in the area.

Regular visitors to Tuscany will have noted the lack of variety in restaurant menus. Casa Matta has that but regularly offers specials that are very different and offer great value for money. Look at thge 8 Euro seafood starter picture. Typically very unpretentious, and if you sit out back in the pergola area you can practically reach out and touch the odd train in the early evening as the pergola practically hangs over the track. Really worth a visit. It has character

Good food, good wine, great service and a warm tuscan decor is what you can expect from La Casa Matta. The Pizza is particularly good - thin crusts (perfect for folding), oozing mozzarella and mouth watering Italian sausage - what more could you ask for? Although a little off the beaten track, it is well worth a visit and for those of you who don't speak the language, don't worry as the staff are extremely friendly and will go out of their way to help you :-)
