We went here with our kids (4 & 6) while staying in the area. The restaurant has a lovely traditional feel, the food is great and the service was excellent. They have a great selection of pastas and pizzas and all the food was beautifully cooked. The menus are in Italian but the staff are very friendly and speak English!

Place is little bit hidden and not easy to find even on tripadvisor. We actually thought we had been to all restaurants around and somehow had missed this one in years. And it is amazing. Quality of food, menu, prices, friendliness of hosts are all amazing.
3 I would like to call out separately: 1) it is great quality but served very quickly for toscany standards
2) hosts speak fluent english - which is not case in most of restaurants
3) quality of deserts- class in its own and as we all know deserts really show if chef is worth their value or not.

We had seen several negative reviews and cant figure out why it happened- for us and our kids overall experience way above our not lowest expectations. Maybe it was just bad day.
We will come again for sure - all five us said so after dinner.
For tip if it is summer - book garden ( and you should really call if you want to be sure you get table outside).
Generally - we tried meat, mare and pizzas- all above our expectations. Pizza reminded me of those neapolitanian pizzas ( more wet style) - kids ate them in cople of minutes and demanded more. Steaks amazing, gamberoni and antipastis also top notch.
Go there and enjoy. Come earlier you will be served faster

Great food, pleasant service, nice outside terrace. Would always recommend the scallopina al limone and their chips are proper French frites. Love the dough balls served when you arrive.
