Highly recommended by our Agroturismo. Now we know why! Worthy of "cucina da mama": genuine, simple 100% Italian dishes with exquisite ingredients. Don't miss the warm antipasti! And enjoy the Limoncello at the end: you'll need it after the opulent meal! The waiter doesn't laugh...More

Excellent quality of meat, truffles and wine. Portions not for the faint-hearted. Typical Tuscan cuisine. Delicious, hearty portions. Very friendly welcome. Highly recommend this restaurant! Prices very reasonable.

Tucked away in a small village near Caprese Michelangelo, Il Refugio is where the locals eat. Unpretentious and very casual, it serves genuine Italian food. It's not expensive, not touristy and the portion sizes are amazing.

My second visit, just in time for Prugnoli season. Wonderfully understated location, down to earth, with warming family environment and the food is excellent, just make sure you're hungry before you go!!

What to say, a milestone for truffle and porcini mushrooms. It is a very rustic and low profile restaurant but the location does not make any influence on the taste of the food. Totally recommended
