After 14 days in Tuscany at many wonderful restaurants along the way we did not expect to be wowed by any more culinary experiences...how wrong we were!
The restaurant is a cosy atmospheric place with wonderful staff who smiled and engaged from the time we left to when we left.
My daughters steak was superb , very tastey and beautifully tender. My wife and I had the bream which was just fantastic. Superb presentation with great local vegetables. Very generous servings of glasses of wine went well with our food choices....we were ready to leave and then......it happened. THE PUDDING CHOICES WERE OFFERED.
WE FELL FOR THE ver honest and soft desert options "sell" and how right we were to do so. The managers wife is head chef and two of the pudding recommendations were just brilliant, the best puddings I ve ever had ever , anywhere. I can not rate this place highly enough other than we had to go and shake the hands of the entire team in the kitchen , they are some talented folk or what!
Just go , have a great night and make sure you leave room for pudding shares..it does not get better than this.

Located in the town not far from the beach but away from the endless eateries that line the promenade. Friendly but professional staff with good English. My wife had a Risotto which she enjoyed and I had a tuna steak dish which was attractively presented and absolutely delicious. The desserts were wonderful as well. 1/2 litre house wine cost €5.
