We had dinner at a long table with about 20 other people (which of course we didn't know). The hostess tried to put everyone on a seat next to somebody from around the same age and who spoke the same language. There were 4 italians, the rest were tourists like us, some from Australia and Canada. We started of with a spinache omelet and a platter with ham and salami etc.

Everything is served om big plates to share with 4 people. We then got to the gnocchi with pesto, which was delicious. After that we got meat with salad en green peas, followed by two pieces of pecorino with honey and after that a orange pie and coffee. Everything tasted great, except the meat was a little overcooked.

During the evening there is wine and water on the table, you can drink as much as you like. With the coffee came grappa, limoncello or dessert wine. We had a great evening. The hostess was a lot of fun! Everybody needed to finish the platters or else she wouldn't take it back to the kitchen. We paid 35eu each, this is a fair price for the amount of food and wine.

If you want a special experience and try some home made food than i recommend this place!

Recently had dinner here with the locals. Sat at a communal table of about 15 to 20 people while Mama served us loads of home cooked and delicious food. The wine was flowing as was the grappa and limoncello to top off the night. A traditional and memorable experience.

Tiziana is a fun, unique, lovely, strong and memorable character who makes this experience ! On top of that, she is an amazing chef! My boyfriend and me were traveling Italy for over 3 weeks and this dinner is one we still love to remember! It's a social dinner table with interesting people and awesome food & wine. Tiziana makes people laugh and remember: "no empty plate goes EVER back in the kitchen" - no surprise , I just tastes delicious and nobody leaves hungry (I promise)! After dessert and few wines later, my boyfriend and me signed up (to my happiness) for horseback riding the next day through the wine fields. It was also a great experience! If we're ever back in Tuscany, we'll visit for sure and stay bit longer!

The food and wine flow freely along with Tiziana who serves, sings, and interacts with her guests. One of the highlights of our Italian Adventure!
