The quality of the food is outstanding with a lot of exquisite choices on the menu. Don't miss out on the sea food. The location is probably the best in the area, with amazing sunset view over Montecarlo. Overall the attention to details and service...More

I have visited this restaurant several times over the years for special occasions. I am always satisfied with the ambience, service and food preparation. It is definitely upscale for the area, Not inexpensive, but provides consistent value.

It is difficult to write another good review about Tuscany reataurants but this place is one of the best experiences one can get. Ask for Chef's Menu and get a Michelin star-alike food journey, at a quarter of the star price.

Having had the occasion in a previous review to bewail the lack of imagination and good quality in Italian cooking generally, it has been a wonderful revelation to experience the lunch which I have just eaten today. The extensive menu offers hungry gourmets a choice...More
