Shall we eat in or out...let's have a look at trip advisor...okay let's try this place...wow, amazing value, truly authentic Italian cuisine beautifully explained by the owner, Paulo. He explained the wine of the region too for us. What an experience especially after being ripped off in Venice. Brings back our faith in humanity.

Enjoyed a pleasant afternoon sitting outside in Tavarnelle at Caffe Degli Amici among locals. Paolo treated us well and recommended amazing dishes (cooked by his mother) and wine (harvested by his father).

The food was delicious in Caffe Degli Amici!!!! Their specialities: "puposa" and pasta with ricotta & spinach were excellent!! The owner is very friendly :) They don't charge extra fees for the "coperto".

we were greeted warmly by the owner Paula, who gave is the menu and explained it to us. However, it was his night off and he was just leaving. It was downhill from then onwards. The starter was a plate of cold meat. Just that . We were not offered the usual balsamic vinegar and olive oil. However hard we... More
