After one week of holiday in Piombino and after ten differents restaurants ( you will find the review of everything ) here I am to write what I consider one of the best culinary experience.

We had almost everywhere touristic food and nothing special, but in this place you will finally have what you're looking for.

Tasty and with a great expression of the territory.
Premium quality ingredients superbly cooked.

I want to spend a couple of minutes to speak about the wine selection that represents one of the main thing that interests me in a restaurant.
You have a very complete different Tuscany selection and just ask to the owner to have exactly what you're looking for.
We had a great bottle of wine, one that I will remember for long time.

Let's speak also about service and personality of Marco, the owner of this astonish place.
He is a true lover of this job, a great man that leaves you breathless after 1 minute.
It's a pleasure to listen to him speaking about history of the product.

I have just one other thing to add.
If you don't go in this place to eat you will never taste the true Tuscany spirit. There is nothing better because this place is a true dream.

Thank you for everything Marco, we will bring the memory of an unforgettable lunch.

Thank LoiAndrea

We were a group of 7 people none of which spoke Italian. This is one of many places we encountered where they do not have a menu and the staff only spoke Italian. We did not let that deter us and just decided to let the waiter recommend things and surprise us. The communication went well with the help of a dictionary, a little bit of Spanish and good humor. We had lovely food, good service and delicious wines all for a reasonable price.
The place was not easy to find and the environment did not indicate such a nice restaurant, but then appearances can be deceiving and the interior is quite cosy.

Very informal in a back street of the historic centre. Chosen by the locals for a delicious selection of food & wine and the cool service. It's a perfect choice to get away from the crowd to enjoy a succulent meal at convenient prices.
