Got to watch into the kitchen all through dinner. Heavy use of microwave. Not fresh pasta. Cold ribolita seared. Cacio a Pepe was pici pasta solidified in a 1/2 cm of melted tasteless cheese.

We got a table late in the evening and we're amazed by the speed, the friendliness and the taste. So all in all perfect. Prices are a bit high, but I guess the level is the same in whole Montepulciano.

We enjoyed a light lunch here sitting outside and enjoying the normal activity of the piazza at lunchtime. The lasagne was one of the best my husband had ever had. Easy to spend time here relaxing over a meal and drink.

I had the sausage with potatoes. Both delicious. The potatoes were unbelievable. Great view if sitting on the piazza.

Small meal Portions, wife's extremely salty soup probably from a can. I ordered ravioli which was mediocre flavoured. Would not recommend. Maybe other meal choices are better but ours sucked. Didn't get a good feeling from the staff either.
