The atmosphere... More

We had a lovely dinner. Beautiful restaurant, staff are excellent. Restaurant serves Tuscan food and every dish is made of first class ingredients. Not the cheapest in town, but worth every euro we have spent. Staff make the whole dining experience complete. They do an excellent job!

Food with class and flare. The dining room surrounded with history and antiques. The first class service, friendly and not overpowering. The manager took time to show all the collection of antiques furniture full of history, not to mention the cellar.

I was there for a quick dinner with some collegues: it was a great experience! Meat was great, rice was a marvellous experience, desserts were the best things you can eat! There is a big private parking area near the restaurant so even if it is a little bit far from the city center it is easy to be reached.... More
