There was no space on the terrace, so we were sat in the courtyard which was equally as nice and cool! We struggled with the menu, so the owner suggested the 7 course tasting and we were not disappointed. The food was elegant and tasty,...More

We had pretty high expectations for dinner, and sadly almost everyone (6 of us) did not like their main course. The service and atmosphere were really nice. We had two yummy appetizers (the antipasti platter and the burrata sandwich), then the restaurant bombed out. The...More

Best dinner in Italy for reasonable prices. Entire menu is in Italian, which we could not read, but the waiters were extremely helpful. Had the signature dish of Tuscany and it was excellent. My only regret is not eating there the next night.

Ma sei sicuro di esserci stato veramente ???????? io non penso proprio e la certezza me la da quello che hai scritto . I ravioli hai tre arrosti nel menù non ci sono mai stati e i menù li faccio io . L'invidia è una brutta cosa , e discreditare gli altri è veramente patetico . Se sei un ristoratore investi il tuo tempo in maggiore ricerca e spendi più tempo in cucina che è meglio
