We were running a bit late for lunch and hit upon this gem of restaurant where nothing is too much trouble and the food excellent and plentiful - and cheap.
After our excellent meal the owner took us down to see the cellars below the restaurant. What a place.

We ordered a tasting of cold cuts, cheese and vegetables, carpaccio, and some kind of liver meatballs. Everything was really good and tasty. The owner is the best. This is a perfect spot if you are looking for authentic food.

My son & I went here for lunch on a quiet Tuesday in August. The menu is hand written & quite difficult to read but there is a good choice of typical Tuscan meats & cheeses of excellent quality. They also have some more unusual dishes such as the Farro salad (spelt salad with vegetables) which I enjoyed, as I did the Bresaola but there was too much on the plate for one person. We had a plate of crostini to start with & my son said his prosciutto e melone was delicious. Prices are very reasonable & the service is pleasant. Below ground there is an Etruscan grotto dating from between 400 & 100 AD which you are invited to visit. It became a prison in the middle ages but you would only want to spend a very short time there!

This hidden gem in Asciano is run by our dearest friend Louisa and her. Husband. They produce the best food you can imagine. Not the pasta or Pizza, but bresaola, prosciutto, pecorino and all other flavours of the Crete Senesi. Sympathetic in its high quality format and always giving a warm welcome.

Couldn't get any phone reception in Asciano so we didn't even know about the #1 rating. The food was simply great, basic local fare but great. Service was very nice and quick, they didn't know a word of English but we managed with a faded menu on English and my few words in Italian. Highly recommended!
