The place is in at the road end, when you can enjoy the silence, nature and lovely service with smile. We took local cheese (10EUR), beef (18EUR), and 2 pastas with oyster (10EUR) and cauliflower with basil. All things were lovely, big enough to make running for the rest of the evening. Good house wine (bottle/11 EUR) is also good,... More

Lovely setting , great food reasonable price we keep going back year after year, the only bad party is that it's so so difficult to book, always full and if you want to sit outside you should book one month or more ahead!

Very good food for a very reasonable price. The service from the waiter was excellent. We tried several different dishes. The best was the starter with 6 different local dishes and the mixed sweets for the desert.

The restaurant has an amazing location and setting. If you can book in sufficiently in advance and get an outdoor seating by the stream you should definitely visit once. The drinks by the stream is also a good idea. The food is average. Fresh ingredients but lacking flavour. The staff is very polite and accommodating. However they get quite busy... More

Magic atmosphere in this restaurant that built in an old mill along a brook over the mountains of Camaiore. Food innovatively presented with respect for tradition. In the restaurant there is also a beautiful bar where you can enjoy an aperitif before dinner. I recommend to go there when the nights are very hot in the coast to get some... More

Every summer we like to dine in this incredible restaurant. And we do it more than once! The location is breathtaking, the people are gentle and very professional and the food is very very good. The setting along the river and the vegetation makes you feel like beeing in Bali while eating traditional Tuscan food! A total immersive experience. I... More

The restaurant is nestled into the hillside with an outdoor drink area right along the stream au naturale. The food was fantastic. We has the pesto pasta and steak but others liked the ravioli and the pork dishes. Order the dessert sampler. It was great. We admire the waiters who deftly manage the many up and downs of the private... More
