“BBQ in Italy?!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2011

Wow, whod a'thunk? It was nice to find an "American" place to try while in Italy, and this place was it. The host is great and helpful and brave to undertake BBQ in a small Italian town. It was a nice mix of TX, SC BBQ (not quite what we were used to from the north east-we eat more saucey, usually) but it was good. the onion rings were authentic and the pie was nice!

“ideal american italian fusion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2011

We found the restaurant on our wine trip in Tuscany. We were looking for a pizza that night but found something much better: American barbecue in Italian style. Very friendly owners treating the business like a hobby and pleasant staff. Good wine from Chianti Rufino winery.
