Although I cannot have a bad opinion about what we ate (I've never had that excellent Gnocchi with pear and four chese), the overall atmosphere of this place was in exceptionally bad taste. There was a moment, when the owner's wife started to shout at him for some reason, and in the end she was trying to scam me 2 Euro on the bill. It's hard to say about being happy to visit La Maggiolata again...

I live on the Tuscan/Umbria border and was introduced to this restaurant by a good Italian friend of mine yesterday. I was with my Son who lives in the UK.
Living here Year round I'm used to good food, but this restaurant and Fabrizio Frusciante and his family really do deserve this recommendation. The food is fantastic and lovingly prepared & served.
If you want to taste the flavours of Tuscany and experience excellent homemade pasta, all gluten free, take in a visit to La Maggiolata - you will not be disappointed.

The owner was friendly: he offered us a drink while our table was set.
He took some time before taking our orders at least 30 minutes. We should have seen this as a warning sign. Food was terrible. Probably only frozen products or not really fresh. One of us was sick after the meal and we all feel a bit nauseous getting back home.
Maybe we stopped by at a wrong time or too late in the evening.

Food was really good when we visited
the place recently. However the owner and his wife exploded at a certain
moment with extreme shouts at another group of people, accusing them
of some stupid action of putting a piece of paper as a hat on a ceramics
dog in the toilet. that group left and we left a bit later, not willing to retrun any more.

We (3 kids, 2 adults, 2 dogs) had a perfect lunch in La Maggiolata. Food is excellent: Pici, Gnocchi, Tagliata di vitello, Panna cotta. Very friendly owners (Fabricio and Francesca). We can recommend this restaurant 100%. Brigitte, Robert, Elena, Julian, Allegra, Lara and Wilson from Scrofiano/Sinalunga.
