We have been very happy with the hospitality, simplicity and typical Tuscan food... do not miss the Pici all'aglione a local specialty cooked to perfection! A juicy thick spaghetto in a light garlic sauce which will light your meal)

The food at this Trattoria was a level above any other we visited over two weeks in Tuscany. The pasta in particular was excellent. I tried a local craft ale which, while hugely overpriced, was really quite special. The chef and maitre d managed a...More
