Excellent pizza. Share a mixed starter for all the flavours of the region. House wines are good. Can be busy but with locals so good praise.

The service is friendly and the spaghetti was great. It is good tot Know Italian or to Know local food recepts since the only language spoken is Italian. However there employees do effort tot understanding the wishes of the guests

We were getting hungry on the road between San Gimignano and Volterra and pulled into this pleasant-looking roadside diner-style restaurant on a whim to grab some lunch. Inside was surprisingly large and all the tables were fully laid, but the only other customers were a couple of Italian family groups, so it seemed to be a good bet. The smiling waiter/owner seemed to be the only staff member, serving us and everybody else, and when he wasn't busy with that, cleaning up around the place. The menu had a large variety of dishes and pizzas, but we were all pizza-d out and decided to order other things. The kids had pasta pomodoro (7 euros) and risotto (9 euros), and we had the grilled vegetable platter (9 euros) and ribollita (8 euros), traditional Tuscan bean soup. The foods were reasonably tasty but nothing extraordinary, and the portions were smallish. I do feel compelled to say that I've now tasted ribollita several times in different restaurants on this trip, and I'm sorry, Tuscans, but it's vastly overrated. Still, we had a nice time there - and it was certainly a big step up from ugly American-style roadside diners.
