We went there several times. Great and fresh food (try their starters!!), home wine, you can take away the pizza, English-speaking personnel. It's so fantastic that pre-booking of the table is highly recommended. And when you find the house, drive downstairs, the restaurant's entrance is there. The best place we've been in Italy in terms of value for money (circa 45euro for dinner for two, starters, main, dessert, wine, coffee.. are you still thinking???)

Very good pizza, the service was very kind with us, very recommendable to have a good dinner with a magnific Toscana contry views from its terrace. Be careful with road to get it, it's quite close!

It's not so easy to find, but worth searching for. Friendly staff, stunning view and great food made by cooks that love their job. And soooo cheap. Also good to visit a second time. :)

cè soltanto una cosa negativo del rifugio !!!!! bisogno pronotare con una settimane di anticipo, non cè mai posto..... buon segno però.

There is only one thing negative about this resurant !!!!! you have to book a table about a week before because it is always full .... that must be a good sign.

This is a very popular place so it's a good idea to book-you can sit either outside or inside . We booked too late to get a table outdoors. The restaurant is on the "main" road" in a very small village in the countryside about 15-20 minutes from Empoli and is run by a very young enthusiastic and competent team of people.
A good choice of food and everything was delicious. The pizzas looked really good and were obviously a popular choice too. Food and wine prices reasonable. Would definitely return to restaurant if in the area
