This is another example of how Trip Advisor can help you find a great restaurant! Our family and friends dined here and the whole experience was just what you dream of when you plan a trip to Tuscany! What made such a perfect evening is the husband-half of the ownership (the wife did her fair share in the kitchen, mind you!). He spoke very good English and truly made us feel as welcome as a local who dined there once a week! The best thing I can recommend to you to make the most of your dining experience is to heed his recommendations! EVERY (and I truly mean "every!") one of his recommendations were absolutely delicious, even items that you might not normally be inclined to order! This is not only applicable to their dishes, but also their wine selection! Will definitely go back again next time we are in the neighborhood!

My family and I stumbled across La taverna around 1pm and were directed down to the cellar. The atmosphere is worth the visit, rooms and nooks decorated with all sort of items.
Our waiter knew his wine well and discussed the local vino rosso we chose to accompany our meals. The bruschetta was excellent, the ravioli in butter with sharp cheese was also excellent but a bit on the small side with only 5 pieces of pasta. The lasagne was a hit with our 7yo daughter and my wife loved her soup. Total bill of 38 euro was reasonable.

We visit this restaurant during the Truffle Festival (last weekend in October & first weekend in November). What a delight. The 'Enoteca' on the ground floor is superb, but the real surprise is downstairs in the Roman Cellar. Several tables in little nooks, cosy atmosphere and much better than average service for Italy. The menu stood out as it offers different food from what you see on every other menu. The Wild Boar with Olives and Chocolate sauce was mouth watering, and the Hot Brie, Pear & Ham was delicious. A great little find.

Sat outside and enjoyed a wonderful meal, the wild boar dish was superb and washed down with fine wine. Prices were reasonable for such superb food. Added bonus was the range of herbs and sauces available to buy inside the restaurant and three months on we now need to go back for some more. In fact the meal was so good it's the one we still talk about from our entire stay in Tuscany. Can't recommend da pina highly enough, it's on the list to revisit.
