This became our favorite restaurant in the area, going back to it on our last night in Tuscany. Had remarkable seasonal and regional dishes with friendly, helpful service. Went for lunch and had ravioli with with a walnut pesto which was tremendous and dinner was equally outstanding, my husband having an etruscan pork preparation which was beautiful, and I had the steak with caper/anchovy salsa which was simple and incredibly balanced and flavorful. Waitstaff was attentive but not intrusive and both the balcony outside seating and interior spaces were inviting and pleasurable. Everyone's food looked good and clearly everyone was very happy with their experiences. Recommend it without qualification (make reservations for dinner)

Ate some excellent antipasti, followed by well prepared steak with a prune sauce for me and succulent guinea fowl for her. Great selection of local as well as Italian regional wines. We had a Syrah from Cortona which had character-and not expensive.

We love this restaurant and eat here two or three times each visit. They remember us from visit to visit and spoil us. As one who is gluten intolerant, it is always easy to find something delicious I can enjoy, including pastas, breads, etc. And my husband who has no such limitations, also loves this great place.

First time in Miami and I fell in love with this place, they truly treat you like royalty from the moment you walk in til you leave. The food is delicious and the owner is a very wonderful welcoming man. He was there the first day we tried this place and it was his treatment that made us come back again for dinner. I would recommend this place to anyone.

We visited del Teatro for dinner and were not disappointed. It was great to have wait staff that were genuinely enthusiastic and cared about our experience, a contrast to our experience at Antica Pieve the night before. We shared the cheese fondue with truffle for starter and it was delicious. We followed with two filettos, tartufo (truffle & foie gras) & al lardo de colonnata e prugne (with bacon & wine & prune reduction). Both were excellent with beautifully cooked meat and flavoursome sauces. We were full after that and told the waitress so she brought us complimentary digestives (amaretto). Including side dishes of roast potatoes (yummy), grilled veggies and a bottle of wine it came to between E80 & E90 (I think). Another couple staying at our B&B went on the same night and also enjoyed their meal.
