My husband and I were driving the Tuscany countryside and saw many cute chairs and tables setup outside. Each table different with real flowers on each table. We ordered a bottle of house red wine and a plate of meats and cheeses. Roberta the owner came out with also huge plate of olives and pickled onions and huge basket of... More

Roberta and her team are building a wonderful atmosphere and menu. We ate here four times in a week. Giuseppe, the chef, is blending Sicilian and Tuscan traditions to build an interesting selection of dishes. Local seasonal specialities like fungi, wild boar and chestnuts were evident this November. Roberta has selected an interesting mix of old English china and welcomes... More

We visited This restaurant in our way to Pisa. I can suggest to have a stop if you like simple and genuine food, nice hosts and a relaxing time. Best in the area.

Visited this place cause it was recommended by a local, but unfortunately it was a disappointing experience. The quality of the food is average and the service is poor. They were slow and forgot part of what we had ordered, we were a party of 7 and they brought 5 pizzas. After waiting for about 10 minutes I decided to... More

I had the Tagliati and was amazed by the quality of the meat and the elegant combination with truffles!

Roadside restaurant with eatable pizzas, very good self-service table and quick service. Chicken was not what I could call "human food". Total disaster. Self service table contains a lot of local sausages, cheese, vegetables etc. , some salads are covered with truffles - half of restaurant is full their delicious smell.

This restaurant was the closest to where we were staying so we decided we would pop in and get some take away pizza. There is a seated area inside and a large seated area outside under cover of pogodas. We never ate in the restaurant but the menu looked very extensive and it was always busy for a place in... More

Great in the evenings, very sociable, great food, good choice of pizza and lots of other options, Wild Boar with Apple is a real treat.

On first appearances, this roadside restaurant looks pretty basic and not too impressive. The food, however, is excellent and the service friendly and very fast. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it a bit chaotic inside, with people/waiters milling about, chatting and debating with each other, while you are trying to enjoy your meal. Not...

We were having big expectations about this restaurant, the buffet was supposed to be wonderful on saturday evening, so we booked a table. The buffet did not look very fresh to us, when we were there nobody ate from it. The staff was busy, we felt a bit forgotten. We took instead of the buffet a pizza, which was ok.... More
