Enjoyed our meal here in very atmospheric surroundings. Bread was not great but had three courses of delicious food. The steak was very large! Three courses with wine and coffee came to 80 euro

If you want to have an authentic taste of Tuscany - this is the perfect place! Fresh ingredients and a charming family atmosphere (baby included) make this a favorite memory! Location (an old monastery) is unique and interesting too.
