As you'll see from the pictures, the decor here defies imagination. But irrespective of your taste in furnishings, you should try this place for every other reason. The people are friendly and the food is magnificent. My wife and I shared a plate of Tuscan meats and cheese, and then a lovely pasta dish - which was small enough to... More

Really good food and service. It was the most expensive of the 5 restaurants we visited. Although there is no view the garden tent is decorated beautifully and has the atmosphere of a wedding.

Reciews mention the cosy decorated garden tent, which is indeed very nice. Welcome was very warm, with complimentary small prosecco. Son had nice children's menu with penne ragu and very nice slice of roast beef with fries. Incl soda drink 10 eur). Dessert moelleux very good. We had beef tartare as starters (12 eur). Good quality meat but underseasoned (actually... More

Very cosy family run restaurant. A unique and sincere local experience, when we were there the other visitors were local. Very create ways of preparing and beautifully arranging Tuscany dishes, though we would have preferred a little more sauce (e.g. red wine sauce or simply garlic butter)

Mix of Toscan traditional and modern touch. Eating is in the garden, no view. Great service, speaking English

All of the dishes on the menu are traditional and simple. The food is excellent as is the service and my recommendation is the suckling pig.

My family loved this restaurant! The atmosphere was amazing and extremely creative. The best part, everything was homemade. We started off with an amazing appetizer (Tuna - a type of pig) and it was delicious. Luca had to have been one of the nicest people I met while I was in Italy. His mom was amazing as well. Another key... More

The mixed starter is a meal in itself. Every dish is great in its own right but the starter is the jewel in the crown. Good wine list. Desserts good as well, unusually for Tuscany. Very friendly and attentive staff who all speak English if you need them to.
