We just jumped in without a reservation on a friday evening during the easter holydays and it was of course fully booked. Since we were early the owner promptly seated us. We had pasta with wild-boar sauce and gnocchi with porcini and truffle in addition to another dish which was less appealing. All in all the atmosphere (interior, "good vibrations") was right, two points: one is the stairs to arrive at the restaurant which makes the venue incaccessible for those who have some challenge such as wheel-chair, but this can hardly be changed. For another however something can be done and as usual in Italy it's the bathroom: the toilet set does not stand up without holding it and the overall WC experience can be unpleasant for female guests.

Arrived hungry after traveling from Rome with 2 small children who were hungry! Owner quickly lit fire and made sure we were cozy! Good wholesome food and reasonable prices!

After ordering tagliatelle with wild boar sauce i got ravioli with wild boar sauce which was pretty good. After this, everything went bad. All four of us ordered sirloin, what we got was mindblowing, but in a bad way... They served two kinds of "sirloin": dry chicken cut in strips and dry beef cut in strips. The reaction of the waiter and waitress (the waitress who was supposed to speak excellent english according to her colleague) after we asked what went wrong with our order was astonishing. According to her, sirloin was meat cut in strips, chicken or beef!! When we tried to argue with them about our doubts concerning the difference between what we ordered and what we got, they suddenly failed to understand even the most basic english sentences. By the way, i forgot to mention that we were with four, but got 3 dishes... The fourth "sirloin" (dry chicken strips) arrived after complaining about the missing dish and when everyone already had enough. We paid quickly and left, never to return to this awful place that dares to call itself a restaurant in such a foodloving country that Italy is.

Last week week we had diner at antica bottle during our stay in Scansano. First we had a "primi"
Pasta course which was fine. After a long wait our "secundi" arrived. We ordered four Sirloin dishes and they served two 'well done' steaks and one grilled chicken, no fourth dish. We asked the waiter about it and he spontanous didn't understand us. An other waiter could tell us that Sirloin was chicken cut in stripes. Still completly amazed about this answer, they served the fourth dish. grilled "Sirloin" chicken STIll RAW! That was our boiling point. We paid and quickly left.

During a vacation in scansano we visited for dinner! We entered because of the amazing smell! We got the last table in the restaurant and quickly ordered! The first course of pasta was great but already a little weird since we got different things then we ordered! The second course took a long time and when it finally arrived the freak show started!! No one understood English and here sirloin means the way of cutting the meat. The evening ended with raw chicken and a strange after taste! A shame that a restaurant like this exists in a food-loving country like
Italy!
