I was introduced to the Osteria six years ago. It was a favorite stop of my husband (a Florentine) and his friends after a Sunday of motorcycling or hunting. At the time, it was local Florentines only who knew of this hidden gem nestled in the hills of Mugello. It is a small establishment that is charming and rustic. As... More

Great lunch in this charming old restaurant. Very traditional food from Tuscany, excellent house wine. Wonderful location in the middle of the Appennini mountains.

Stopped here on our way through Tuscany, to have a quick bite. Very friendly staff and good coffee but the food was the best, and the best value for money so far in Italy we've had.

Just stopped here randomly on our way through the village. So glad we did. Great food, really friendly staff and a bill which makes you wonder if they've forgotten to add something to it. The only complaint we have is that we now need to go and lie down after stuffing ourselves with so much yummy food!

Really amazing home made meals, the pasta was incredible, the pesto was sinfully delicious, the service was superb. A little off the highway but worth every minute you spend looking for it. Your gps will try to get you back the way you came but if you go up the hill there are signs again for the highway.

Excellent no nonsense authentic Italian food, beautiful setting and even better that you need to try to speak Italian to the restaurant staff to order your food. Well recommended and amazing value for money.

The owners were great: they immediately asked if it was our first time there, and when we said that it was, they suggested having one appetizer and two half first courses. It was delicious and the servings were indeed very generous. And, at the end, we had another surprise: the bill was so very reasonable! Well done, we will be... More

Been offered free Prosecco while we were waiting for a table to become available as we didn't pre-book. No wonder it was full!

We visited the restaurant for lunch because it was top of Trip Advisor for the area. The dining area is a covered terrace across the road from the main building and was busy when we arrived about 12.30. The menu has a good selection of antipasto, pasta dishes, meat dishes and desserts. We chose a couple of antipasto platters to... More
