my boyfriend and i popped in here on the second night of our stay in san filippo. i had the rabbit with truffle - though it was more like truffle with rabbit! i love truffle, so that was perfect for me, but if you don't like a strong taste, then let them know, and they can cook it with less (or none).

the staff was very friendly and it was fun communicating since neither of us speak italian and they were not super fluent in english or german or french.

we were there at the end of may which is a bit of an off season, and i recommend that! not a lot of crowds, not too hot, and we had the place to ourselves.

We read the reviews- the good, the bad (we are fluent in Italian)- and decided to try this place out on the last day of our vacation to judge for ourselves. We are so happy we did! The osteria is a historical building, brimming with rustic charm. The food is all locally sourced (kilometer zero), prepared with imagination and skill, and made from high quality products. I'm so sorry I forgot my camera because I would have taken photos. From the antipasto to the dessert, EVERYTHING we ate was delicious, impeccably fresh, and perfectly seasoned. The service was also excellent. There weren't many people there and we ended up chatting with the chef, the wife, the parents- we even met the little son who looks like a cherub. We had the Italian "dolce vita" lunch- long and relaxed, fraught with laughter. The woman who served us was so nice- and funny. They even kindly offered us a digestivo before we left! Thank you for a memorable experience.

This was the only restaurant in town that was open when we visited. It was delightful. Our B&B host described it by saying "they cook well." This was true.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal of chicken liver pate on crostini, pasta, and Tuscan onion soup.

The service was warm and friendly. The atmosphere was cozy and homey.

We had a lovely meal here after an evening in the hot springs - there is a real homely atmosphere in the restaurant, which appears popular with locals and tourists alike. We were there mid week in winter and at 9pm local families poured in. The food was delicious and the restaurant beautifully decorated and maintained. They even lit a fire for us!
