We didnt even stay in Saturnia but made certain that when we left Tuscany we made a quick stop even though it was out of our way. I've had Bistecca all over Italy including Florence and this hidden Gem is by far the best. Mario is a master and he knows how to prepare the best steak. My wife loves... More

They say this is the most expensive, but lets be honest it is expensive in comparison to alternatives locally, it is NOT fine dining. The ambience of dining out on a warm summer evening in a small Tuscan village on the square is exactly what this restaurant provides. We arrived around 9;00 which would appear late as most were finishing... More

Food was mediocre, the bill, however, wasn't. Expensive for the ambient and quality. Steak was decent, but nothing to rave about.

PLEASANTLY surprised! Mario met us at the door and cooked my bistecca alla fiorentina right in front of us and it was the BEST steak i have ever had. He is a super nice man and you can tell he really takes his time cooking that steak to perfection. Its worth the visit just to watch the care and meet... More

We only had one night in Saturnia and this place was only a few doors up from our accommodation. We had read the mixed reviews but decided to go anyway and I am so glad we did. There were only 3 other tables so it was nice and quiet. The ambience was perfect (temperature, music volume, lighting). The waitress was... More

Since it's not on the main square, this small outside restaurant is frequented more by local people and is, therefore, typical. It's not cheap, though!

The gnocchi and the meat were amazing. The service was attentive and it was one of the best meals we had in Italy. Great home cooked Italian gem

The meat from the grill was overdone, and the room was kind of cramped. It is hard to operate a grill while at the same time attending to guests. Not value for money.

We had a a great family dinner at family-run Ristorante Da Mario. Mr Mario prepares so taste grills which are just melting in mouth... Excellent service, good local wine and olive oil.
