Lunchtime only a few tables were occupied which made our experience even better. Quiet and serene. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. We had the Prix fixe special of antipasti, pasta, bistecca and then biscotti made to order and sliced at the table. (About 29 euros )...More

Went there for lunch. Was a little concerned that it would be too touristy, and yes, it was popular with tourists but unlike many, the restaurant has kept to quality Tuscan food. Excellent service, food and very good wine list.

Locally raised beef and locally grown vegetables skillfully prepared, beautifully plated and served with a locally produced wine. The meal was amazing (see pictures). Don't skip the homemade pasta made with local flour, white wine and no eggs! I asked the owner what I should...More

I don't think they do. It is a very small environment, and the food seems more suitable to dinner.
