We had seen previous reviews of this place so we were a little disappointed with the slow service. The food was well presented and creative. The staff were polite but were unable to keep up with demand the evening we visited. It was a clean and pleasant environment.

Wonderful little restaurant, tucked away in a quiet little street. We had a great lunch here - really loved their inventive cuisine. Excellent service as well, and reasonable prices. Highly recommended!

The atmosphere was cosy, the service was attentive, and our dishes, although not extremely generous in their amount, tasted very good. I had the onion soup for starters - it came disguised as a cup of cappuccino, with cream of foam over it and a small parmigiano cookie... More

How glad we were to have found this little gem. Pizza so impressively thin. Service was impeccable and cleanliness very good indeed

Looking for somewhere to eat out of the midday sun, I came across a promising looking doorway just outside the historic centre. A good welcome was followed by a starter of zucchini flowers in 3 ways and then a rolled saddle of rabbit stuffed with baby artichokes. All excellent as was the wine offered by the glass. A white chocolate... More

We stumbled across this restaurant by chance on our first night in Pistoia and were extremely pleased that we did. In fact we came back again two nights later. The waiter was extremely friendly, whilst his wine recommendations (he's a sommelier) were all excellent. Particular mentions must go to the Asparagus flan and the steak tartare both of which were...

Such a good restaurant. The atmosphere is warm and we felt really good in this place. The waitress is more than welcoming. She was speaking perfectly French and many other languages. The meal was delicious. We advise you to try the mixed roasted meat. The owner can advise you really good wines he chose.

Best meal in 2 weeks Tuscany, beautiful tuna, excellent wine. Go and be spoil yourself. You have a chance during the ferragosto in tavola event to get introduced to this restaurant and friendly service for only 30 euros.

Very welcoming owner and very nice cooking off the beaten italian paths. Restaurant is situated just in front of Pistoia's Tripadvisor no. 1 - Hotel Patria.
