The restaurent is charmingly cosy with the most impressive huge wood fire in the kitchen!! BBQ Chef Ricardo has an amazing way of handling his various meats and sausages, moving them around his large grill. He cooks countless Bistecca steaks. The huge range of Pastas are edible, many of them could do with less cooking time to get it more... More

The place is not fancy, it's decent and looks local, just the place I was looking for when in Tuscany. Had a dinner here, and arrived with the help of google map. This is a good Tuscan experience for me. Good Florentine steak! Decent house wine and pasta. Recommended!

I was looking at an old photo album and reminiscing about a cycling holiday we took in April...1998 and retrieved the name of this restaurant from a receipt we had kept. And so now I have the opportunity to write a review about this great restaurant, 18 years later! Obviously I don't know if it is under the same management,... More

Don't judge from the outside and first impression. We had the best bistecca fiorentina ever here in this place. All the meat is prepared on a wood fired bbq and it is just excellent. Also the spaghetti meals were very good but we definately have to recommend that you try the bistecca fiorentina!

We went here because of the good reviews. When arriving there were 3 other tables. The welcoming of the hostess was less then friendly and hospitable. The atmosphere outside was cold! No music and not much coziness. We took the menu of the day which was ravioli, beef and cheesecake. The portions were so big that my girlfriend did not... More

Location of the restaurant is perfect, when sun is shining at lunch hour. In terms of food I was disappointed with the food. My wife and me shared lasagne and poultry salad. Poultry in the sale was dry and tasteless. Portion of lasagne small and also missing taste. Water was over-priced. Restaurant is for the tourists and explains prices, but... More

A long narrow badly painted room with a very friendly family staff serving top notch local food, mainly meat from what I could see cooked on a genuine wood fired oven/grill. We didn't try the pasta but the mixed meat starter and fiorentina were excellent, very rare and we weren't asked how we wanted it (which is fine I think... More

This little gem is just down the road from Castello di Casole. About 1/3 the cost of the hotel restaurants and real, home cooked Italian dishes made it a win! Always filled with locals which was a good sign. The Fiorentina steak (half or 1 kg) was amazing, and the chef cuts it off the cow in the back and... More
