My daughter and I stopped here for lunch one cold, damp day in March and were seated in front of the fireplace. We had a very nice lunch with artichokes, pasta and wine.

The restaurant is nice. The decoration is beautiful and the tables setting as well. The food was o.k. And even less. My ravioli still got the water and the the herbs didn't effected the taste as I expected. The dolce were great .even the common dish of tiramisu was exellent

Second time I go to this restaurant. First was ok. The second was not good.
The pasta al ragù was not as good as it is in some other rest in the area. The starters nothing special. The wine selection was not so good. It is a shame because my expectation were very high, since I left this restaurant for my last night! Instead, it was a wrong decision, since was the worst dinner in Tuscany.
