This is a little gem, on the road to Montalcino in a tiny town of Sant Angelo Scalo. The chef is utterly brilliant and uses local ingredients. The cheese mousse with pear and honey has to be tasted to be believed. It is the food of angels. The spaghetti with courgette and pistachio pesto was so good we travelled the next day to get it again. Everyone was absolutely thrilled with the delicious plates of food. The desserts were also outstanding including a cheesecake that was so delicate and light. We ate in the garden. The cafe inside is decorated very simply and the surroundings aren't spectacular, but if the food is this great who cares. Service was efficient and friendly. t is closed on Monday.

We were staying nearby at Castello Banfi and dropped in for dinner. When we asked for a table the owner screamed at us in Italian. I think he was trying to tell us that we needed a reservation. It was a cool night and we were willing to sit outside at 3 open tables. In addition there was an open table inside. The owner was verbally abusive and we left immediately. We have been to Italy 3 times in 5 years and this by far was the worst experience we had. I would avoid this restaurant at all costs.

The restaurant is lovely and simple, a very helpful host who speaks enough English to help work through the menu, incredibly reasonable prices, and wonderful food. Their house wine is wonderful too. A great night out.

Having done our TripAdvisor research we were keen to try this restaurant as it was close to our apartment. We couldn't get in the first night, so booked for the following day. It was well worth waiting for!
The handwritten menus give a feel for the homely nature of the place - if you don't speak Italian well, a translation app or phrase book is helpful. As other reviewers have commented, you come for the food, which was excellent rather than the look of the place. It's inexpensive, and so we had an excellent meal for four with wine, water and coffee for 90 Euros. The house red wine was good - easy drinking.

Great stop off while on the road through Tuscany. We seemed to be the only tourists which was a good sign to us. Owner had minimal English but we figured out the menu together. Food was local, fresh and tasty.
