We had a light lunch here during our excursion tour from the cruise ship. The owner is very welcoming and speaks perfect English. Good price and good food.

Try the pasta fungi it is out of this world. Great service and cosy dining with stunning view plus busy take away bar at front. Well priced as well the cost goes up on the other side of the gate of this incredible medieval town

Had breakfast there. Although I asked for a plain croissant, it was so fresh, fluffy and had buttery taste. Yummy! Great start of the day. Not forgetting looking out of the window for the peaceful ambience overlooking Tuscany.
