We just left dinner. The restaurants by our airbnb were complet for the night and we remembered seeing the sign earlier that day. I was struck by the promise of a new approach to cuisine- which after 3 days of traditional rich, Italian food I needed a bit of a variation. We walked up the street- pure magic! A restaurant built into a hundreds (notice the s) years old building with tables in front. Terra-cotta pots with rambling Tuscan plants and a streetlight over the square. The staff, headed by an older chef- talked with the patrons. A little kid explored around the restaurant- watching them cook. And the food- it started with an appetizer platter which was sophisticated and expertly prepared including an outstanding grilled prawn and a sort of potato cheesecake mini tarte...wow. The next course was perfect pasta seasoned just perfectly. We split the steak with arugula and fresh tomatoes- simple and divine. The dessert, a ricotta tarte on a ladyfinger crust with fresh pears on top- was amazing. They gave us free homemade lemoncello and meloncello- wow!!! A magic night at the authentic restaurant you hope to find

this is a restaurant from a movie, they take their time, watch the locals come, the pasta was cooked to perfection, the food was prepared carefully and perfectly. This is what i came to Italy for! sitting on the 1000 year old steps in the ancient city, i felt nurtured and a part of something larger.

They are so friendly and foods are delicious. Appetizers are so good and may be one other great thing about here is they don't have a set up menu just because they are preparing a new fresh one everyday which makes them special.

We had a great night and great dinner here. The waiter spoke English well, but we asked him to speak Italian because we are trying to learn :)

The anti pasti is really amazing, everyone should order this! The primi was very good, the secundi was good but not amazing. My wife had the entrecote, i had the spada of swordfish. The baked potatoes on my wife's dish were cold when served.

We finished with a dolci which we shared, something which is quite common...it was really really good. Afterwards we were offered a digestive for no charge, really nice.
