The road to reach the restaurant by night is an experience itself. Then you will find a nice place where you can revisited Italian flavor. The raw fish and the purple gnocchi should be tried !

The wine list includes a wide selection of local and Tuscan wines as well as some of Italy's finest drops. The restaurant is closed on tuesday.
