This restaurant is a real find - beautiful food, amazing wine and a delightful service. We had 2 pasta dishes (including the gnocci) and both were exceptional. The pesto is so fresh and tasty, the sort of pesto you can only get in Italy. We followed up with the steak and roasted potatoes and the tomato beans side, which were... More

The service matches that or supersedes that of its parent hotel. The wine choices were absolutely amazing. The quality of each course was made with painstaking care, and presentation to delight the eyes. Service was very professional, courteous and friendly. A must if you're within 50 miles of it.

Done here with my in-laws, and it was delicious. On the menu a lot of dishes of the Tuscan tradition, from the starters to the mains. We were pleased to select some special of the day with fresh truffles. Great wine selection with many options from the region as well as from Italy in general. We will be back!

The wait staff were prompt and attentive and provided useful suggestions. Many delicious options, including vegetarian - fresh ingredients, a variety of seasonings, etc. We thought we... More
