We loved eating at this osteria. We enjoyed the simple atmosphere! We enjoyed the owner greeting everyone. It’s a very small place and gets busy very fast so reservations are recommended.

This is a smallish family owned, outstanding restaurant. Hands on service by locals. However, fear not... the food is top notch. Right around the corner from our hotel, thus an easy stroll through the square. Can't go wrong!

Been visiting Julios for many years, great atmosphere, really relaxing. Order the steak sit back and enjoy the entertainment. It's a one off place and I love it.

The steak is fabulous. Julio comes by your table to find out what size steak you want. The house wine is very good and reasonable. Portions are large. Word of advice, steak comes one way - rare. If you want well done, dont waste Julios...More

I would say depends if you speak italian? The owner speaks good english but the staff not as much. Our host where we were staying phoned and made a booking for us 2 days ahead.

The Osteria ACQUACHETA, open for over 25 years, has retained the characteristics of the old Tuscan taverns. The kitchen, sharing tables, one glass for water and wine, and not least an authentic welcome and true, typically Tuscan, make it a local flavor ... you feel at home ... Managers, CHIARA and GIULIO, have maintained intact over the years the tradition of pasta, bread, cakes and homemade preserves to which are added succulent steaks cooked Florentine embers of wood. Local, small and very popular, is located in the upper part of the old town, a few steps from the main square.
