We called ahead and they opened the restaurant for us beyond the time they were originally open. I have no idea how the two of them made all of our food (8 of us) but it was all spectacular. We were in Florence, Siena, Rome, and other small towns but we remember this meal as one of our favorites! We... More

We were welcomed to our dinner as if we were family. The owner, Roberto, escorted us to our reserved table for four in one of the two restaurants located in the village of Mensano. This medieval village with a population of less that 200 is a must see for any traveler. And this restaurant is a must visit for any... More

Visited a few times over the past years and was really looking forward...what a change, the server was obnoxious...should have realized things had changed when we tasted the bread...stale and tasteless ...the appetizers oily...the pasta with wild boar rague was like eating boiled ground beef...won't be going back!

Excellent Tuscan food in an attractive location in the small town of Mensano. The owner is a delight. Well worth a visit.

We ate here on our last night in Tuscany based on the good reviews, and sadly were disappointed. The waiter was not particularly cheery and we certainly saw none of the charm others mention. The food (bruschetta, cheese, pasta, steak) was average and we had much better elsewhere on our trip. Also the restaurant was filled with small tour groups... More

We ate here in August, outside on the street tables as it was so hot, and there was a good atmosphere. Menu choices are limited, as you would expect in a small restaurant, but the food was excellent. Service was efficent, and great wines, too. Went back a second time and it was just as good. Try the Torta della... More

The restaurant located is centrally located in Mensano. If you want to spend a real nice / romantic evening, then ask for a table outside. The scenery is stunning. The food was excellent, so we already returned already for the second time. Wines are nice too. So overall an absolute recommendation if you are around Mensano.

Family owned and run charming osteria. Set daily menu with very good wine choices... This is as good as it gets when it comes to Tuscan cuisine :)
