The quality of the food was good but not outstanding. We visited a week ago on a chilly September evening and sat inside when I think everyone arrived at exactly the same time so there was a little stress in the service which was quite disjointed.

The pasta was excellent and the starters were good. The meat secondi were also good. We were guided to some wine which was, again, good not outstanding.

I would imagine we were slightly unlucky with our night judging by other reviews and it is only this (and the pasta) which stopped me from giving the restaurant an average rating/3 stars. That said, if I was passing at lunchtime and could sit in their terrace with the hill views and have just a bowl of pasta and not care so much about service then I would definitely do that. So I'm slightly conflicted about this place but this is my best and honest review.

Had a wonderful evening at this delightful little restaurant in the hills of Chianti.
The food was excellent, especially the boar was fantastic as was the fillet of steak. The atmosphere was great with lovely staff. Highly recommend this to all Tuscan travellers

Really good food, the products were so fresh and tasteful. The town was really adorable. The view was amazing. We went there between two wine tastings and it was really worth the detour. The owner was also very nice. There is no doubt we would return here in our next trip in Tuscany!

Good value and tasty. Best steak tartare. Friendly waiter, good value wines and a view of Chianti from outside. Cosy inside in winter.
