This was by far one of the most memorable visit I ever had. It's definitely true that one has to visit a smaller place of the beaten path to get the most memorable experiences. I ordered a plate of Picci pasta made with some heavy garlic sauce, including half a liter of home wine. The taste proves that you can... More

We ate there 2 days in a row....i would highly recommend it!! The menu is original with typical dishes from the area. It's not the usual tourist trap! The cook & waitstaff are extremely friendly and the prices are reasonable. The food was truly delicious, really worth it...from the appetizers - crostino with beans & lard and cold cut plate...

We tried this restaurant at the recommendation of our host as a simple and inexpensive choice for dinner. We both had ravioli, followed by a steak dish, a tomato salad and a dish with beans and pork, along with a jug of house wine. We were very happy with the quality and price. Don't expect a 'fine dining' experience, but... More

As we were living nearby we visited this place one evening. Yes little English spoken but we managed with our little Italian and a very helpful waitress. But we did not enjoy the "welcome" seems locals get treated better. Yes, it's small but we were placed at a long front table, apart from other local diners. Menu was poor but... More

Found this little restaurant by chance during our honeymoon. We were immediately amused by the handwritten daily menu and no English details. The simple decor and no fuss very friendly staff shows confidence and that the guys know what they are doing. We had pecorino with spiced figs and a simple frittata with bacon, Sausage in chianti and salt cod.... More

We very much enjoyed our dinner at Osteria del Gatto. From the moment you enter, you can feel the difference compared to other more tourist catered restaurants. The menu was written only in Italian, but the waitress spoke enough English to help us know what to order. The food was very good! Interesting...they told us it was "not possible" to... More

Limited menu but the real deal. The ragu was authentic bolognese. The gnocchiletta with hazelnuts was delicious (but rich). Great meal!

Italian only menu and limited spoken English should not stop you. The ravioli in a butter sage sauce was one of the best and the sausage in chianti sauce was scrumptious. Gatto's 4.5 stars are well deserved. Friendly wait staff.
