Superb antipasti selection of meats and cheeses. This was followed by home made pasta with wild boar. Wonderful! All was washed down with house red and sparkling and still water. The dessert was a superb Grandmother’s Cake. A very enjoyable experience.

Visit this quaint spot in the heart of Tuscany. Great food with a beautiful view. I recommend the Cinghiale. The hospitality and service are fantastic. The owner speaks English fairly well if that is a concern.

Wow! This is the home cooked food and family service one travels to Italy for. Loved the lasagna, ravioli, eggplant, zucchini, and blueberry cheesecake. Fantastico!
