Simple but very satisfying. Inexpensive. Best value for the quality we had during our trip. Had the salad, gnocci and fettucine and all were excellent. Their chianti homemade wine was excellent. Waitress was delightful.

Had 3 different pizzas, all were very good. The San Gimignano red for 12 euros we had was very enjoyable organic IGT. Service was very good, no problem at all. They brought pizzas one by one, so I guess they have only one small oven...More
