Part of our memorable stay in Tuscany was the excellent food we had while we were travelling around. La Torre was certainly one of them. This family restaurant have soups and hearty stews that will make you miss your mom! we truly loved it.

We enjoyed our meal & service, however since we did not have a reservation we had to eat upstairs. We weren't the only ones though. By 8 pm the upstairs was full.
