We went to Aqua Borra as our Italian friends love it and eat there often. We had lovely meals together but decided to go one evening and it was a disaster. We waited 1 hour and twenty minutes for a fish anti pasta and we only got a tiny sea food salad having waited all that time. The service was... More

We ate here the evening after the gran fondo strade bianche and were amazed at the treatment we received. A tuscan starter to kick off followed by two second dishes and then desert and coffee to finish off. Good meat and a great choice of wine are 2 of the reasons we will certainly return to this restaurant next year.... More

Brought our 7 year old and 11year old and waiters were overly accomodatin, despite a prix fixe menu they made whatever the kids wanted. Their valentines dinner was delightful, best night in Italy thus far.

I was lost outside Siena trying to find my hotel and saw this place; i venture down a dirt road covered with snow to find this place looking for a customer; me! I don't drink but still entered this Ristorante Enoteca to find one of most memorable meals ever in Tuscany. Just eat and enjoy. Easy on/off highway and short... More

This was one of the best meals I had while on my latest trip to Italy. Staying in the hotel montaprti up the road we walked to this restaurant although I wouldn't recommend it to everyone - the walk can be a bit dicey on the way back! Food was excellent, service friendly and the young waiter stayed to practice... More

Very calm and relaxing place...despite the vicinity with the Siena-Bettolle highway. We had a full dinner with delicious home-made quiche, pici with pecorino cheese, roast-beef and unforgetable tiramisu...The service is very easy going and friendly. We stayed outside under gazebos and before living we had our coffee under the stars...To be recommended if you are staying at Pietre Vive Agriturismo... More
