We were staying at villa sensano about 50m away so ate here a few times during our stay.

Nice, friendly family restaurant with good food, reasonable prices and good atmosphere.

Both pizza and pastas were good. Decent wines and aperol spritz. It was closed on Tuesdays when we were there.

During our stay at Villa Sensano we ate here every day. Sometimes even twice a day! Great food, especially the seafood! Very friendly waitress!

We arrived here on a friday night, and we found out it was the first night the place was open during low season (they are always open for lunch, though!). The location is beautiful, and we were warmly welcomed. We shared a huge tagliere (local hams and different sorts of bruschettas) and then I had a delicious boar stew, whereas my husband ate a wonderful basket of fried vegetables and rabbit. Their wine was very good (no need to order a bottle) and we had a nice evening listening to Italian singers playlists (at a decent volume, not bothering at all). I do recommend it and it was worth the 30 minutes drive from our B&B.

We were staying round the corner at Villa Sensano and ate here twice with our 5 year old son. The food is excellent and the pizza are great too. We would recommend the steak and cheese fondue.

We were staying in the next door villa so visiting Il Cipresso for a lunch or dinner was very convenient for us. A large terrace, a very quite place with good view on the countryside around, friendly staff (closed on Tuesdays). We missed a baby-chair a bit. The food was very good, home-made, decent prices, can certainly recommend. We had tasty pizzas (only evenings), pasta and guinea fowl (delicious) and mix grill (ok). Our ranking is influenced by (very high) Tuscany standards, in all other countries (incl. our home) we'd rank it very good.
