The food at the restaurant is good typical local Tuscan cuisine, prepared well with fresh ingredients and a little bit of imagination. But the service was catastrophic. We waited an hour and a half for our second courses and when we finally received them they were in a number of cases not what we had ordered. We will never return.

This restaurant is lovely! It's a family run restaurant and the food does not disappoint. We visited twice while in Tuscany. The staff are very friendly and all the locals also like to dine there, so it has a great atmosphere. You must visit if your in the area! Also worth the drive!!
