Two lweeks ago My husband and I spend a week in the Tuscany region. The lady of our B&B in San Gimignano recommended the adress of this restaurant in Certaldo Alto. We both were immediately charmed in several ways : the new owner and his lovely wife set the highest standards in terms of friendliness, personal service, and top quality.... More

A fine restaurant overlooking the amazing Tuscan countryside in Certaldo Alto.The stuff was very friendly. Most of us had pork with pear. Two friends had lamb but they didn't like it. It was a great pleasure for us not to be charged for the meal we didn't like. They serve a very unique tiramisu.

Lavish Italian decor with brick, beams and stone work and fine wooden furnishings in authentic style. However, the food doesn't match up! Sat outside on the terrace overlooking the exceptional views of the Tuscan countryside - but despite the varied menu, the food fell short. Chicken liver pate was very strong and lacking firmness. Pork was over cooked and tough.... More

Absolutely fascinating and romantic place on the Certaldo old town (Certaldo Alto). Awesome traditional dishes with a modern twist. Probably one of the most beautiful places to dine or lunch in whole Tuscany. The view is just amazing. Prices are not the lowest in the area but you get excellent value for money! The place has also a small B&B... More

What used to be a lovely restaurant in a delightful setting has been reduced to a poorly run place to eat where the food is sub standard! This service is charmless and the pace of service resembles a fast food diner rather than what should be a high class restaurant. If you're thinking of going - don't! Your disappointment will...

The view is simply amazing. The menu looked really exciting and we had high hopes. Unfortunately I think it must have been the chef's day off as the food was awful. The ravioli was waterlogged and the crown of lamb was sliced and cooked "well done" and not in a good way. The service was a bit hit and miss.... More
