We stayed down the street from this restaurant at the base of town, nearby Relais San Bruno who recommended this restaurant. Very good service, wine list and meat and seafood options, in a charming classy restaurant, no hurry, sit back and enjoy

Based on the reviews we were expecting this to be very good. It wasn't. The osso bucco was inedible and the beef filet was rare when I requested medium. All around not a good experience.

Just off the Main Street tucked in an alley, this was a pleasant discovery! Ate outside in a family friendly atmosphere. Really nice pastas, solid grilled lamb and veg. Good wine list and well priced. Very good al around!

We found this wonderful spot , just off the square. Service was wonderful- obvious that the experienced wait staff was very good. We both had the veal filet. Wonderful. A little stuffy inside ( warm, humid night).

Outstanding Tuscan cuisine. The veal steak just melted in the mouth. Lovely relaxed atmosphere, attentive staff and great food at reasonable prices. What more could you ask for?

Attractive place (though if you want to sit outside, book or get there before 8pm!). Food was fine - fairly traditional selection. The burrata was fine, the grilled lamb was well done as requested. House wine was fine. Would eat there again

We came as a big loud group. Not an easy bunch to handle.... but the waiter was patient and professional. He might not have cracked too many smiles but he was still professional. The food was outstanding. The starter platter was excellent, a little taste...More
