Really enjoyed the food in this scenery. An old wine cellar transformed into a restaurant. The food was delicious and the braised beef probably one of the best main courses ever! A big thank you for the hospitality

Took a cooking class with the executive chef and it was a wonderful experience. Had the tasting menu after and each course was a tribute to the chef's Greek roots and Tuscan influences. Highly recommend.

Very conveniently located in the hotel. So if you are tired of driving all over the Tuscan country side this is a great place to hang your hat for the night. The food was very good and the staff was great.

Gordon Ramsay should stop by and launch a few f bombs to wake up the crew in the kitchen. The food seems old, reheated and without taste. Fresh is not on the menu. Desserts are very good and service is prompt, but stiff. The regular...More
