My wife and I had a nice meal at this restaurant. Ravioli was delicious. Food was lovely and very Tuscan. Was a bit quiet when we went (end of September) but would recommend.

Great "simple*" food. Fiori di Zucca frittate, Ribollita, Pasta al tartufo, Risotto, Flan - all basic Italian stuff but made with pride and skill. Very good red house wine, too. *The best things in life are the simple things.

Absolutely fantastic restaurant in the small pretty hilltop town of Mensano in Tuscany. Serving fabulous authentic Tuscan dishes, great house wine and very friendly and helpful staff. Great quality food and reasonably priced. Thoroughly recommend and well worth a visit!

We visited in the early evening without a reservation and were the first table to arrive. We asked to sit outside and were puzzled when we were told they were full. We sat just inside the door and before long the place was nearly full....More
