Sformatino di polenta with a taleggio sauce topped with shaved truffles - very good! A sformatino di spinaci with a taleggio sauce topped with shaved truffles - very good! Excellent gnocchetti con funghi porcini and very good tagliatelle with a cream of leek sauce. Friendly service and excellent house wine.

This place offers excellent local food (even the wine is produced a stone throw away and is good). I liked my antipasto, a bit less the tagliata which I found too fatty. My colleague had the stuffed ravioli which were excellent. Wine is local light red, good for the meaty dishes. Prices are very reasonable. The place is quite small... More

I visited the L'Upupa a year ago and I was always dreaming about going back. So it was obvious when I stayed in San Miniato again I visited the restaurant. In fact I booked a table in advance just be sure that we have a table. (It is a small family restaurant with 4 or 5 tables, so easily gets... More

Perfect ambient typical Tuscan food and most of all very friendly staff. The owners and chef are very friendly. Food is amazingly good. Place is in the centre of San Miniato and parking is not a problem at all ...a few mins away. Perfect for a Tuscan experience.

Visited with my family after a demanding day of plains and trains. Although we were all tired we enjoyed the food very much, grown-ups and children alike. We recommend the tortellini with cream of leek and the mushroom soup but everything was to our liking. The staff was pleasant but could was some help once the place filled up.

My wife and I stopped in town while driving to Siena looking for a good lunch, and this place exceeded expectations. Everything from the ambience (old race car memorabilia and jackalope's on the wall) to the house wine (superb) to the cheese plate and two plates we ordered were great. Stop here if you get a chance.

Small but very cozy family run restaurant with generous portions and cordial atmosphere. Keep coming back for 2 years already and determined to continue. They are always fully booked! It's really worth it to book in advance. Truffle dishes are fantastic but that's not all. Try ravioli, peposo, gnocchi- never a disappointing dish. Owners are very friendly people.

After visiting Leonardo de Vinchy village we went, 17 people of us to the restaurant. It was the time of Truffles and we were recommended to try them. We were not disappointed. The food was well cooked. It took a while before all of us got their portion but worthwhile the waiting.

Very small place. The 6 of us were luck to be there at 1pm (when they open for lunch) and got the one big table they have. All the food was excellent. Unfortunately no white truffles yet so we're going back again since it ought to be time now. Across the street is a truffles specialty shop. For truffles lovers,... More
