The best pasta in my life. Period. And sooo unexpected! Wild bore pasta and leek cream bacon ravioli coupled with fantastic family-like warm-hearted service! You should not try white chocolate mousse or you will dream about it whole night :) This dinner made our day!

My family and I rented a Villa for the week in San Miniato and wanted to check out the local restaurants in town. This place was very good! We made a reservation as I had read ahead of time that there were only 8 small tables inside. We ordered everything that had to do with truffle that night. The pasta with the shaved truffle was so good - I still crave it to this day. Service was amazing - I highly recommend this place.

This is an amazing restaurant, from the antipasti, pasta, truffles, beef, wine, service. Seriously, if you are able to, go here.

We were in San Miniato, the land of white truffles and we wanted truffles! Osteria L'Upupa offers a start to finish menu to encompassed everything truffles. The million dollar question is, could you handle it...

The usual cover charge included the water (which is unusual and appreciated). Every other restaurant we had dined in, water was extra and was never included.

White truffles was not in season so we had black truffles in every single dish. It was good but to be quite frank, it may have been to rich. Recommendation: You may want to opt for a bit of variety to cleanse your palette. This way, you may be able to appreciate the truffles more...after a while and having dish after dish of truffles, everything tasted the same. A shame.

The restaurant did not have a view but the service made up for it, 110%. It was small so be sure to make a reservation or else you may not even get a table.
