A close walk from our hotel, the food was very good and very inexpensive for the quality and quantity. I would say this is a locals spot and some tourists, so reservations are a must!!! Service was OK, the menu is in Italian so brush...More

This is a lovely little restaurant presenting fabulous Tuscan home style food cooked with soul. The ambience is the vibrant and noisy. I’ve read the other reviews about patchy service but we found it to be excellent and enjoyable– there was some playful banter but...More

We had a wonderful dinner with great food. Typical tuscan food and we felt like grandma made dinner for us. We can recommend this place, however, reservations are needed.

We chose the famous gnocchi which was very good. Roasted veal was OK, but nothing special. Wanted to try the veal steak at 3 euro per 100 gms but minimum order size was 1 kilo (2.2 lbs), which is way beyond what the two of...More
