What a delightful, small, family owned and operated restaurant in the heart of the ancient walled city of San Donato in Poggio, where diners are treated like family. Son Luigi and his father and mother work together to deliver a memorable, Tuscan dining experience. Luigi's mother is the multiple Michelin award winning chef, creating traditional, Tuscan cuisine. And she proudly... More

Beautiful little restaurant in this unspoiled village. I enjoyed a quiet business dinner out of season in November, but there were still families and couples on a Wednesday evening enjoying a meal. Local specialities including home made pasta and beef stew were delicious. Highly recommended.

Father and son served a beautiful family-style lunch of Tuscan treats and made us feel like we were part of the family. We had an array of pastas and great wine. Luigi was an attentive host and his father was funny and endearing. There were 8 of us and we ALL loved this place and would come back.

We had a wonderful dinner in this family-run restaurant. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was everything one could've asked for and more. The hosts were very attentive and friendly. The place felt like home. Our kids were very thrilled. Highly recommended! Important: the restaurant is NOT accessible for motor wheelchair users or regular wheelchair users with no assistance.

We had an excellent meal here when we were staying in San Donato. The service was very fast and our food came out very quickly. They speak very good English and were able to answer our questions about the menu. Try some of their local favorites.

Situated in the old town, parking a bit away. Service by owner and son, polite and efficient. Simple dishes well prepared at moderate prices. Avoid house wine. Wine list attractive and inexpensive.

It might be we visited at the end of the high season, but although there was an extensive menu, you basically got served what they'd decided to cook that day. That said the food was very good, but slightly detracted by the minimal choice.
