The food, the service, spot on.
This restaurant is hidden in the Galleria Cavalieri Ordine Vittorio Veneto in pogbionsi. This has to be the dining experience in Italy for me. The food was exquisite and service was exceptional.you have to try the highly recommended squid ink risotto. Italy generally has been a let down in terms of service. But this culinary experience exceeded all my expectations.kudos to the chef( who made time to come by the table and say hello) and the management team.

We went on the basis of trip advisor reviews and were absolutely delighted. ..DO NOT be put off by the location which is uninspiring. There is no menu - they just tell you what they have available - meat and fish - we all chose something different - from porcini steak to a seafood platter - and no-one was disappointed. The Tiramisu dessert was a real highlight too!! The chef came out to see everyone during the meal - so he is clearly confident his food is good and rightly so - most diners were locals - we were possibly the only table of tourists. Worth making a reservation as very popular - not cheap either but great value for money! We loved it.

We went for lunch at the recommendation of a business associate. When we pulled into the neighborhood, we weren't sure. The restaurant is hidden behind the archway of a mid-60s council block, but the surprise behind those doors, made it even more special. It felt we had discovered a hidden gem! From the welcome of the gregarious chef in tall chefs hat, apron and ubiquitous clogs, to the understated but elegant interior, it felt special. We had a light lunch and I wished we had time for a bigger meal. It was all excellent! The cured meats platter was as good as advertised: salame, prosciutto and other delicious meats hand-cured by the chef himself. We shared a carpaccio of beef with artichoke heart salad and bits of parmiggiano lightly dressed with aceto balsamico that was light, flavorful and satisfying. And to cap it all, a retro pan di spagna dessert that brought me back to my mum's cooking of the 1970s. All in all, a satisfying, excellent meal that left me wanting for more. I'll definitely go back for a more leisurely and extensive meal. I can't wait!

We have eaten here twice on our tuscany vacation.
Location is not easy to find and surroundings are somewhat bleak. Nevertheless service and food were just perfect. Local food, slightly creative if you want, though not cheap. We definitely recommend eating here if you are on the road from Florence to Siena .
