We first discovered Al Principe 32 years ago when our first child was 18 months old. Since then we have returned every time we have found ourselves within a 2-hour drive of the place and not once in all that time has it disappointed. Mauro and Davide are the most welcoming of hosts and the food, traditional Tuscan fare, is outstanding.

Before a visit, we find ourselves struggling with the choice between favourites - the mixed crostini are a must, then there is the Pecorino with honey, and the scampi, but then how can you not have the prosciutto? At the right time of year the salad of thin slices of fresh porchini mushrooms layered with thin slices of Parmesan and sprinkled with oil and lemon juice is mouth-watering. But you mustn't eat too much at the start otherwise you'll struggle later. The maccheroni (broad ribbons of pasta) with carne funghi (meat and mushroom) sauce is to die for, but the seafood pasta and risotto are amazing, as are the ravioli with butter and sage. Their veal tagliata (steak simply grilled and cut into delectable slices flavoured with peppercorns and rosemary) is wonderful, as is the grilled lamb, and of course fish and eel are great specialities of this restaurant. The white beans go really well with most of the main courses.

Decisions, decisions! The only solution is to keep on going back and having different dishes each time!

The wines too are excellent and Davide will recommend something suitable - and remember what you enjoyed last time.

For consistent excellence there is not another restaurant in the world that our family has found to beat Al Principe.

We were staying in a villa near to Al Principe and were recommended by the owners to visit the restaurant. We weren't disappointed. We order the degustation menu which had 3 appetisers, pasta courses, 3 different types of grilled seafood, dessert, coffee and wine for 40 Euro. Not only great value but great food as well. The restaurant is family run and the son who runs the front of house was very friendly.

A local recommended this restaurant and we weren't disappointed. We had the degustation menu which is a bargain and includes an enormous amount of food and wine and bread. Service was lovely and friendly. A great lunch.
