We were told this was the best pizza in Montalcino. Didn't try any other, but this was pretty good:) The restaurant fills up quickly for dinner. Also has some italian beer if you happen to need a wine break😉

We ate the pizza and it was good! We also ordered a bottle of red wine and it was good as well. The staff was really friendly and we felt really comfortable.

We had a yummy caprese salad and steaks. They were so juicy and amazing. I'd go there again just for that steak. Interior was nice, staff very friendly. Didn't have to wait too long,even with a busy place.

We ordered pastas and pizza's. The pastas were good but the portions are small. The pizzas were so so. Nice room to sit (airconditioned). The staff was rather neutral. Prices are moderate.
