Beautiful restaurant with a large garden to keep away the summer heat and inspire your meal. I had a board of local delicacies while the rest of us tried meatballs and Tuscan pasta &pesto. Fast and friendly service, bill was fair

This restaurant didn't disappoint. We requested a garden table as we were dining without small children and it gave them the freedom of space. The food was delicious and the fresh ingredients growing in the garden were literally picked and on our plates. We ordered a selection of anti pasti, cured meats and a cheese board with fruit, parmigiana with... More

We went for an aperitivo so we just had drinks and a "tagliere", but the garden setting was just lovely, the service was great, and the food very good. Being used to prices in Forte dei Marmi, we were blown away by how reasonable the prices were. We will certainly be back soon for dinner!

What a great experience! Food is to die for, people are utterly friendly and the restaurant is just so picturesque! Also, you can really spend a little and enough and every well. Call ahead as they are not always open.
