Reccomended place if you are in the area. Well presented courses for a reasonable prices. I have been served quickly but the quality of the food remained delicious. I tried the sformatino di carcioffi and the bavette al pesto di cavolo nero... and simply buonissimo.

This is a very nice restaurant that we visited while staying in Torreveccia (5' away) in Tuscany. The quality of food was fantastic and we really enjoyed the traditional dishes of Tuscany. There was an extensive wine list at very good prices. The service and the atmosphere were also great.

My wife and I went here our first night in Pistoia, based on a recommendation. We went early because we have a small child and so the place was quiet. However the service was excellent and the food very tasty. The Parmesan soufflé with a red onion sorbet was a particular delight. We are thinking about going back before the... More

Recommended by the owners of our lodgings, the fantastic B&B villa Parri, we enjoyed a lovely meal in this hidden gem outside Pistoia. A family business, run by the younger generation, with the Papa and Mama still present on the background, giving their obvious and well earned approval. Such lovely food combined with a lot of Antinori wines to choose... More

The service is quick and efficient ,whilst still being friendly. I dream of the pecorino pie with red onion sorbet ,as a... More

This is a lovely family run restaurant and was recommended by the Villa Pari where we were staying. We had a little difficulty communicating with our waiter, we ordered a bottle of Prosecco and were given two glasses of Prosecco instead. The restaurant was in a quiet location with a lovely atmosphere. The food was good and we went back... More

A bit off the beaten track, our hotel recommended we eat here, we weren't disappointed. It is a lovely family run restaurant, which was full of local people (I always find this reassuring) the food was great, the service was friendly and the bill was very reasonable, what's not to love! Would definitely recommend if your in the vicinity.

We were recommended this restaurant by the host of our villa and were very pleased we tried it. The menu features traditional Italian and local speciality dishes. A highlight was the duck pasta and the roast pork - so delicious. To finish we ordered a waffle shell filled with custard and strawberries. It was stunning. Service was efficient and very... More

I would reccomend to everyone to try it. So well done food. Tonight I had a "cannolo con melanzane alla parmigiana", one of the best things I've tried in my life. Parola di Pistoiese.
