enjoy your meal, have a true "gusto italiano". The service is family, they really make things possible, even for larger groups and odd tastes and preferences. A few paces of the beat and a true oasis of the tourists main streets.

Order a bottle of wine and start with some cured meat, prosciutto and salami. Skip the pasta and get a nice Fiorentina or a stunning and delicate Tagliata! Definitely in Love with the Tagliata alla Montalcinese. Beautiful meal! Nice Italian Service and friendly atmosphere! Complimenti!!!!

Really had a fantastic lunch here. We were just very hungry and couldn’t be fussed to search anywhere. The wild boar pasta was great. The veal scallopini in mushroom sauce was even better. Very reasonable prices.
