This family run restaurant has excellent food but is also very friendly. There are always lots of Italians eating there ae well as visitors and everyone gets a very warm welcome. Most seem return visitors.

The ravioli burro e salvia was delicate and perfectly seasoned. The spaghetti alla puttanesca and pecorino al forno con miele were delicious as well, but the ravioli was made in paradise. A hidden gem indeed.

Restaurant is in an old barn farmhouse that has been updated. Troughs are still there but all cleaned up of course. We had the best service of our month long trip in Italy which included some Michelin star restaurants. Alex and Alexandra wee awesome.

Went there on the way from Volterra and found this gem by chance. Really nice environment, excellent food and the most amiable service. Would recommend this place to anybody! They also sell honey, cantucci and (really tasty) olive oil in the restaurant. Top!
