Spectacular Tuscan food, wonderful quality, and a truly friendly service. Definitely try the fish carpaccio; we also had an amazing tagliata, an aubergine tomato, the pork, and fantastic papardelle Tuscan style. Tastefully decorated,and the atmosphere was great, too. A delightful experience.

Called in here early one evening around 6.30/7.00 very quiet. Service therefore was good and the food came out quickly, we were not that hungry so only have a main course. I can recommend the restaurant, reasonable prices.

My friend had pasta with truffles and I had pasta with meat. We both enjoyed our meals a lot. The price was modest. We did not have to wait very long.
