We found this place by chance on our way out of Poppi one day, but it was closed. A few days later on our last night we tried again and found it open. How glad we are! Easily the best meal we had in Tuscany, very good price, excellent service. And a beautiful location. My wife is coeliac but the attention to detail from the young lady who I believe owns it could not have been better. I honestly cannot fault it. For UK readers, this was fine dining at Beefeater prices. Take the trouble to find it if you are nearby, you won't be disappointed.

We were warmly welcomed even though we had no reservation. Our hostess was very pleasant and friendly. We choose the mixed local cheeses to start accompanied by chestnut honey. When I enquired where I could purchase the honey they gave me a small pot and told me where I could find it locally. My partner had the guinea fowl and porchini and I had the wild boar both tasted great and portions were generous. A shared desert of chocolate cake with hazelnuts and pear and we were both very full! A great place to go with emphasis on Casentino foods and wines at a reasonable price, Fabulous views too.

Lovely meal, lovely hostess. Felt welcome and comfortable and the food was traditional and filling. My mussel and bean pasta was delicious and my husband enjoyed his pici pasta ragu. Would return again.

The dinner and the Service were great. The restaurant is built in a castle. There is a wonderful view. Everything is very modern.
It was awesome

What a little gem of a restaurant this was! This was an intimate setting, exceptional service and a menu that branches away from traditional Italian and offers an insight into the Chef's worldly travels through the flavours. Best restaurant in town, set atop a historic castle setting.
