Great restaurant to have lunch or dinner. Tasty and good prices! Dry wine is also great. Chianti region is famous for dry white wine.

Easy to find. Stand just inside Porto Matteo and it is about 80 metres up the alleyway/tunnel on the left. Good music and the owner is a great character. Food is,also,good value for money. We went twice lunch and dinner

We went two adults and two kids (ages 5,8) for dinner. It was a small cozy place with a great ambience. A hidden gem. :-) They only serve bruschettas, but they have 65 types to choose from. We had four big bruschettas, which was plenty...More

This was, hands down, the worst good we have had in two weeks worth of travel throughout Italy. All of the dishes, from the salad to the bruschettas, were obviously made with frozen and pre-canned ingredients. I wouldn't be surprised if absolutely everything was bought...More
