After reading positive reviews on another site, we decided to have lunch here. Parking is available in a lot across the street. Our waiter spoke great English. He provided helpful recommendations. We enjoyed our meal and dessert.

We devoured the entire steak - god only knows how big it was! All the pasta and soups were excellent too. Low key, filled with locals, its all about good food. The proprietor was very pleasant to speak with. I highly recommend dining on the steak, and then a nap.

He decided to compromise on a plate of fried rabbit and chips.... More

From the front directly on the Main Street it does not look very inviting. However, there is s wonderful, quiet courtyard in the back. The food and service were excellent. The menu is not large but everything we had was good and the florentine steaks being eaten around us looked delicious.

We had a lovely meal here suggested to us by friends that live in this area. The inside is kind of dated but we asked to sit outside on the terrace. The Florentine steak was to die for. It is probably the best I have ever eaten. My children had the pappardelle which were very delicious! The service was good... More

Ok so despite the recommendation in our accommodation booklet, we drove past twice, then stopped for a drink - not quite sure (trusting).......but hell this place is good.

My family and I stopped here on a rainy day in Tuscany on a whim. It looked small from the outside but was very warm and inviting on the inside. We were greeted by the owner's daughter who explained all of the dishes, kinds of wines to pair the dishes with, and answered any of our questions. We even had... More
