We called in here first time as it was getting on for lunch time before we went back to our hotel. The man who ran it could talk to us about things that were/ or were not gluten free. As my wife has to eat a gf diet. At first we were the only people in as it was getting on for 12, and the staff were eating prior to opening at 12.30. We were given the menu to peruse, and told what things my wife would be able to have. Had a lovely meal. Went back a few days later and the man wasn't there but a friendly lady assisted my wife, couldn't have the peppercorn steak as the sauce had flour in but the best thing she could have in the meat range was grilled steak. She chose ribeye steak, and it was cooked to perfection, with some potatoes and salad. I had the peppercorn fillet steak with chips and salad. As the place filled up with locals it gave the impression a nice friendly place where the staff were happy to help you when choosing meal.

Desperation drove us to stop for lunch during the long drive from Florence to Genoa. Seemed like a chips with everything place with strange décor in the middle of nowhere. Still it satisfied our craving for food before we journeyed on. At euro92.50 for seven people, it was not the cheapest lunch we had on our tour, nor the best. The cover charge was 2.50 a head so that turned out to be about 20% of the bill.

A nice restaurant near our hotel. The service was nice and friendly. The food was authentic and good, with large portions. The restaurant works perfect if you just want to have something to eat for dinner.
