Wow! The best pizza in the world! Been here many times and we're always happy! Roberto the chef creates fantastic dishes too! Great family and staff! Highly recommended if you're in the area, if not it's worth the drive and find! Delicious!

We stopped in here on a rainy day. They have convenient parking and easy to access. It is very clean and the food is wonderful. We enjoyed local wine, Fernanado C and pasta (first coarse) and rabbit (second coarse). We were very pleased all around and would stop here again.

If you are a meat lover and looking for a countryside restaurant, I would highly recommend this one. It's an authentic Tuscan restaurant serving wild boar meat and delicious rabbit. Don't forget to leave some space for the desert :) Alberto & Alicja

We loved this pizzeria patronized equally by tourists and by locals. The food was simple and delicious, the service outgoing and friendly, and the atmosphere congenial. The sports crowd that congregates here is fun and not at all rowdy.

This restaurant was conveniently located for us and we visited twice after long days sightseeing in the region. The food is without fault, but service is a bit on the laid back side, very friendly non the less and reasonably priced.

This restaurant serves excellent food - the pasta is great and the risotto cooked to perfection - it needs to be "croccante" not over cooked (unlike stated in a previous review). We ate there on several occasions and found the host very helpful - certainly a place one can recommend.

The waiter is a little hard of hearing so speak up or you'll end up with the wrong dish. The quality of the food was good but they could have cooked the risotto a little more.

Very friendly service. Starters were good and my pizza was excellent. My wife's chicken was a bit dry and the roast potatoes could have been better. However, my fault for not checking, but when I examined the bill later it contained an unexpected "5 X 1.00" item which I could not rationalised. Had I checked more thoroughly there wouldn't have...
