we shared a wonderful meal for a large group. They served 3 pastas family style..the ravioli with truffle sauce was out of this world. I recommend the florentine steak...but not by yourself!

The double salad was good. The bread was good. The main course was greasy and over salted. It was the most disappointing meal I have had in 2.5 weeks in Tuscany.
The restaurant is located in a beautiful spot.

The salad was good, but the meat and fish dry and overcooked. The pasta was bland. A mixed grill dish turned out to be deep fried, with hard, encrusted lumps of chicken, turkey and beef swamped in grease. We left most of the food uneaten. When the owner was consulted, he responded that "everyone loves my food."

Booked this restaurant for 50th birthday whilst on holiday very nearby and did not regret. Ate on a Sunday evening could not get in on Saturday) and still relatively busy. Party of 16 was handled in friendly and helpful manner by staff. I had bruchetta starter, which consisted of 4 different types. We all avoided the pasta course as we had eaten at lunch. My main was a shared Florentine T-Bone - which was superb. Only fault was waiter didn't recommend any vegetables so had to take of others. Finally we had a very light (fortunately !!) birthday cake as dessert. Lovely relaxed atmosphere in lovely picturesque grounds. Probably best of some very good restaurants attended in Tuscany.

The most beautiful restaurant!
We visited here whilst staying in the Borgo Petrognano opposite. The staff are so friendly and helpful but I fell that another staff member would be good as service was slow when the restaurant was busy.

The setting is beautiful with a gorgeous garden setting and the tables are decorated beautifully.
The cats and dog are friendly but dont harrass you and the owner said straight away that they were friendly as we walked in with kids and she checked often that we were ok (the kids adored the animals and wouldnt leave them alone)

There is a great kids park so we never seen the kids all night - had to drag them back for dinner :)

Saying that, they do not have a kids menu and the food on the menu was a bit fancy for the kids. But I did ask the waiter and the chef was more than happy to make a spag bol for the kiddies.

The beef was amazing as was the antipasti starter. The sea bream was great and the mushroom risotto was fab too.

We visited 3 times during our stay and enjoyed all of them. Such great value for money and the wine was great too.

Cant wait to go back
