An eclectically furnished restaurant with exuberant and larger than life owner. Loads of character everywhere, lacking on people as this is still May so quieter than deserved. Our food was very good - asparagus with risotto excellent - although our mains were a little low...More

The owner greeted us with the phrase "my food is the best in all of Italy" and then pestered us the entire meal with unwanted song and communication. They served us the entrees of the couple sitting next to us and created a delay in...More

We had pasta lunches here and they were very good. What was particularly nice is that it's in a side street off the main street so it's much more peaceful than the majority of other cafes.

My wife and I enjoyed an excellent meal in great surroundings and view across the valley while being entertained by the owner who sings and talks to guests with natural enthusiasm. The Rustic Chickpea soup and Fiorentina steak are both worth trying.

annoyingly it was the remains from my 6 yr old daughters plate! But to be fair my food was equally as good, as was the wine, decor, service, staff and ambiance. Definitely returning.
