This restaurant was recommended to us by a local Bed & Breakfast owner near the town. We have been in Italy for 8 days and have dined at many great restaurants but this was one of the best. The service was excellent and our waitress very charming and friendly. She was probably the best one we have had in any... More

Go here. If you don't like dining in a somewhat elderly atmosphere, go here anyway. Order the steak, the fillet or the Chianina. The meat is so fresh and tender, it will make your day.

A friend of mine celebrate her wedding there and gave me all the best information about when we've been there, I felt a very normal low level restaurant, people there not concerned at all to customers and this kind of things, now I heard that owners took over back the place, so i think that experience should not be considered....

The food was delicious and the waitress and hostess lovely women. The menu was only in Italian so we needed help in interpretation. With her limited English, she did a fine job explaining the menu items. When we complimented her on her language skills, she was tickled. I admire their efforts to communicate with us Americans who know so little... More

If you are hungry and can't find any other place to spend your euros, you'll be fed by courteous staff, you'll then have spent your euros and will soon forget what you ate. Nothing to write home about - so if you are looking a foodie experience, this isn't it.

Welcoming staff with nice service. We had a late lunch on the outside terrace. The papardelle with wild boar ragu was good -- I agree with the other reviewers that the place was not outstanding in any way; however, I thought the cuisine was well-prepared.

The staff was very nice when we arrived and the service was fine given the large crowd at lunch. However, the food is nothing special. It's Maremma style and not interesting at all. The meat was overcooked and the Wild Boar was OK but nothing to ever try again. This is "fuel" not cuisine.
