Suggested by the owner of the San Gallo hotel, we trusted and left it very satisfied. Sofisticated and elegant location out of any expectations looking of it from outside, although not posh. Good choice of fish and meat, also vegan dishes, i went for tagliata di chianina because when you are in toscany you must eat meat and red wine! And it was really delicious, tender Juicy and medium price, but right looking at the location. Will go back next time for sure!

This was our number 1 restaurant over seven days in Italy. We spent five days in Tuscany without tasting Chianina beef or Brunello wine. Imagine our surprise and happiness on the way to Rome to discover both on the menu for a late lunch at L'Altruista, Both were extraordinary in quality and very competitive in pricing. The bottle of Brunello was ten dollars less than the cheapest Brunello at the Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport duty free store. However, other bottles at L'Altruista ranged up to $1,000 US.
Service was persistently patient as we were suffering some personal chaos at the onset. They were also quite helpful in offering to adjust the screens to block sun.
Finally, parking nearby is ample. The design is well done, modern Italian with upscale, clean restrooms. There are at least three separate dining and bar areas to fit the diners' desire for formality or leisure. It beautifully complements the restored walled feudal village that surrounds it.

One vegetarian, one seafood and two meat eaters had a wonderful meal sitting on the terrace.
Would highly recommend this if one is passing by.

One of the most pleasant surprises we experienced was in the newly opened restaurant L'altruista. The restaurant is really beautiful, every detail in wright place. All flawlessly clean, neat and comfortable. Friendly and professional service. We did not taste better food in the wider region. Some of meals that we ate, we would recommend to everyone, for example:
Pasta fatta a mano in casa, Chianina steak, Pici al gambo di aglione, fantastic fish meals..
We sincerely recommend the restaurant as a "MUST TRY"
