We stopped here just because it was on our route, and we have been really lucky because we found a great restaurant. We took the degustation menu, including local cold cuts, home made meat pasta and mixed grilled meats. Everything delicious, for just €25 per person, including home-produced red wine!

The place looks good but when the waiters don't speak a word English. When the house is full the waiters are so busy they don't have any time to check up on anyone and things start to take ages.

Wonderful understated restaurant in the foothills of Montecarlo near Lucca. However everything about the restaurant is top class, service, flavours and wine. The steak Florentine was the best I've ever had. We had intended returning again the following night but they were closed for a well earned break on Mondays.
