Rustic structure, tipically tuscan, located in the country area of Castellina in Chianti. Is by a family conduction: Federico and Maria Pia are brothers and they are concerned it since 1994. Dishes are simple, homemade and household. The menù consists of: Appetizers: salami, cheese, grilled bread with sauce , fettunte (oil bread), grilled vegetables , omelettes, dishes based of fresh truffle. The first dishes are all caracterised of homemade and fresh pasta: meat ragù such as wildboar, duck and rubbit or vegetarian ragù such as truffle, mushrooms and cheese.

At the end you can try the homemade desserts such as tiramisù, pannacotta, vinsanto e cantuccini (a typical sweet wine with buiscuits), jam cake, apple cake and chocolate cake. Desserts change daily.
