Making a reservation is recommended especially when you want to experience the view during dinner, but walk ins are excepted as well when possible. When you have dinner on the terrace an extra fee is charged, not much, but it is charged. Blankets are available if needed so you don't have to get cold when enjoying dinner at the terrace.... More

We had melone and prosciutto starter and meat main dishes wild boar and my partner had bone marrow stew both very so rich and flavoursome! Service was fantastic, we were there early for dinner (6) is seemed to be getting busier when we left which would have been a nice atmosphere!

This is the one restaurant you have to visit when in the vicinity. Necessary to make a booking. Outside tables with lovely view and inside very nice ambience! Good food and wine - always! We always go back and can't wait to visit again!

Nice people and good food even though we were stuck inside! Rain caused our reservations for eating outside with the stupendous views to be dashed, but the staff is still top notch (the owner is great) and the food is just as delicious inside. Still, if you can get an outside seat (which we did in 2014), there is NO... More

Really enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant. An outside terrace with a beautiful view that cant be beat. The food was very good but somewhat pricey. The pasta pesto was delicious, as was the veal dish but you pay extra for any sides (our waitress told us they were included so we ordered 2 and were charged for them -... More

We picked the restaurant based on the reviews. We sat inside as they were busy on the Terrance and it was a tad cool anyway. The server that started our service was not overly friendly, however we were taken on by a very friendly woman as we progressed through our meal. We started with the bruschetta alla pomodoro, to be... More

It was hard to choose from such a wide menu but we were all delighted with our meals. We sat on the terrace so could see for miles over the Tuscan countryside. It was a lovely last dinner to end our weeks holiday. The got a few insect bites from sitting outside but would do it again!

The food is good but of course the main attraction is the view from the terrace. However, it is always booked in advance so make sure to make a reservation days in advance. Prices are reasonable for the quality of the food.

Book early if you want a view from the terrace. The tables are snapped up to get superb food, fair price, good service and one of the best views in town. But beware in the height of summer as the sun sinks late and thus early dining can be very warm unless you are at a table under the shady... More
