We had a delicious lunch of risotto with ortica, cooked perfectly then lamb and tagliata, both very tasty. The atmosphere was relaxed and pleasant in an interesting space. The staff were very professional, friendly and perfectly attuned. We were impressed.

On a very hot Tuscan day we found this very charming restaurant, which looks like an old cellar. Very nicely decorated place, charming service an great music. We ate an amazing bisteca fiorentina. Desserts were also great!

Attentive and knowledgeable staff and well presented, well cooked food. I only wish we had stayed longer and had time for a second visit. Sadly, they were closed on our last night : (

The restaurant is in an old building absolutely beautiful. Maybe an old place to make olive oil. The whole dining room is very nice and the decoration is OK. The food is very disappointing, not so much choice and our risotto was under cooked. Staff...More

Colle di Val d'Elsa is a very small Tuscan hill town and we did not expect to find such a lovely restaurant there. Unusual decor, excellent food. We asked for a couple of things not on the menu and they readily provided them. Traditional Italian...More
