In a balmy monday night of mid june we dined on the terrace and enjoyed the place. We were here before, many, many years before, when the owner was Erik Banti, the notorius wine producer now located in Scansano. We started with Crostini con Lardo di Colonnata, then Acquacotta and then Tagliata, everything was nice and well prepared. The dessert was the perfect round off of a pleasant evening.

We ate once at Passaparola and it was just ok experience. The decor is pleasant, food ok but service a bit chaotic. Two different waiters were serving us and eventually we got somebody's else food which we started eating as we did not know anyway what we ordered. After few minuted the waiter came back and took the food from us, half eaten (!!). In other places/countries we could simply keep it.

We were there during the off season so there weren't many places open but we hit the jackpot. Service was great and they made a point to remember our preferences and provide the extra information needed. Food was very tasty and the price was quite reasonable.

Since we came here at a cold winter day we didn't have the chance to try the outdoor terrace. The interior however was cosy and warm, with big windows, and the service was timely and efficient. We were generally pleased with the food, which had been prepared with care and fresh ingredients, even though the bruschetta al pomodoro was a bit tasteless (I suppose pomodori should be better eaten in the summer). Overall we really enjoyed the local recipes and the nice house wine and I must add that the price-quality ratio was very good!

Off the beaten path but with a great view of the valley from the garden. Unfortunately it was too windy during our visit to sit outside. Great food and good wine list. Can get busy at lunch so go early.
