Tables are set on the pavement which means you can watch what is going on in this picturesque village. Had dinner but were under an awning so the sun didn't make you too hot before it went down.
Owner was a real character and made us very welcome as did the other members of staff. T-bone steak was also very good although not to the standard of Trattoria da Benito in Orentano. Pasta and pizzas also very good. Chocolate profiteroles were fabulous (more of a mouse on the outside). A lovely evening - again you need to book or you won't get in.

Visited here whilst staying in Orentanto with family. The food was great, had a good selection on the menu. We had pasta for stater and the T-Bone steak for main, and also a dessert. Could not fault the food at all. Only thing I would say is that the menu is slightly pricey if you are after steak in comparison to some nearby places. However the rest of the menu is very reasonable. Would highly recommend! In a great location also, with a great atmosphere!

Visited late ish on a Sunday evening and had a very friendly welcome from the staff. The food was slightly different from the normal Tuscan fare, with some specials written on a board.

The meat cooked in the wood oven was good quality and the house wine was great.

Recommended if you're in Altopascio or passing on the A11 autostrada.

We had a delightful dinner here last night. We sat at an outside table on the Main Street in Altopascio where we were immediately struck by the beautiful table linens and attention to detail in the table setting. The owner, Luca, personally took our order. We started with a house specialty appetizer, a delightfully light and delicious bowl of soft bread with melted tallegio cheese, pears and honey. We then shared the sliced T-bone steak for two, which is cooked in their wood burning oven. Delicious! Baked potato slices and porcini mushrooms, both tender with just the right crunch, rounded out the main course. The wine, a Rosso from nearby Montecarlo, was soft and perfect for our meal. I highly recommend this jewel in little Altopascio for atmosphere, service and outstanding food.

We stopped off here on our return from a day trip
To Florence. The food was excellent as was the service. There was a service charge included on the bill however this was a set charge and is clearly stated on the menu. We were able to adapt the dishes to our personal taste and we don't speak Italian! Fab place to call for good value food and service
