Perfect setting on the terrace at sunset. Friendly and attentive waiters. Seemed to be a nice mix of locals and tourists. We liked our pastas better than the pizza but both were great. I had a steak which was perfect. I wish we found this place earlier in our trip as we would've come more than once!

This place is the best location for eating out in palaia. Sitting outside under the tree is beautiful. However have been coming here for many years and it would be lovely if things changed a little... Please go and check it out for yourselves though. Has a dish of beans and it appeared to be a tin of cannelloni beans... More

Sitting outside in the shade of a tree this was a good place to share pizza with friends, food is basic but well done. Pasta looked nice too.

Found this place by a tip from a friend. Terrific food, they even had wild boar! We sat outside under a huge tree, while inside you can watch the pizza chef in action with the wood fired stone oven. Lovely place; we shall come back next time we visit Palaia

We had a nice meal on a Monday when most spots are closed. The terrace is lovely and good evening views of the Tuscan countryside. The pizza was very nice. Most of all the service was excellent and attentive. My wife had the flaming ice cream dessert and she loved it. It's so hard to go wrong when dining in... More
