We enjoyed an evening with excellent food and outstanding service on the terrace with a view of San Gimignano. It made our last evening in Tuscany very special and we will definitely go back.

With views across to San Gimignano, eating at this intimate restaurant was a thoroughly delightful experience. The menu is thoughtfully constructed and imaginative and when combined with a great bottle of wine and wonderful service, made for a memorable evening. We stayed at Locanda dell' Artista and took the opportunity to eat here as often as possible. Although we ate in San Gimignano on a few occasions, nothing matched the experience we had here.

Impeccable fine dining with total attention to detail and so deserving of the excellent way and reviews. We stayed at the Locanda and ate here as often as we could - from the tasting menu to a la carte from the switch from spring to summer menu. The food, wine, setting - all sublime. A neat well thought out menu with just the right amount of choice. We have eaten at Cum Quibus and al43 wipes the floor with it. Truly magical - including the picture postcard view. Brindisi!

From the moment we arrived, until we begrudgingly drove away (we would have stayed at the Inn had there been an available room!), our dining experience was perfection. You had me at "Hello", literally, as Baker, the quintessential host, greeted us by name when we arrived. A glass of prosecco was delivered to each of us as soon as we were seated (thank you!), along with a tasty foam treat. Each course was painstakingly prepared and presented at the perfect pace. Delectable food, amazing views, exceptional service, AL 43 is more than just going out to eat - it is a celebration that weds all the senses into an unforgettable evening in the hills of Toscana.

The five course tasting menu was the highlight of our holiday. Intelligent flavour combinations accentuated by beautiful presentation and accompanied by velvety chianti made for a memorable fine-dining experience. I would whole-heartedly recommend dining here to indulge in the best of seasonal Tuscan produce delivered with skill, ingenuity, passion and love.
