Roberto greets you warmly when you walk in this cozy restaurant in the small town of Mensano in Tuscany. We arrive in time to see the sunset over the valley before going in to eat. I started with the wild greens soup and then had the cinghalie ragu. Both were terrific but it's really the warm family feeling that makes this place so special.

This restaurant was highly recommended and did not disappoint. The relaxed setting and personal service from the owner created a warm and intimate environment. The food was excellent from start to finish. The pear pasta and wild boar stew paired with fried artichoke are worth the trip.

We had an excellent meal this evening at this amazing family restaurant. Highly recommended. Try the wild boar stew and ravioli pear pasta.

This charming restaurant is located in the small village of Mensano in Tuscany. It was recommended to us by our concierge, and we were warmly greeted when we arrived by Roberto, one of the owners. He made suggestions for our group, and kindly dealt with our challenge with the Italian language. Fortunately, his English was better than our Italian! Every dish was fantastic, with special kudos to the pasta dish he called Beggar's Purses and the Osso Bucco. His sister is the chef, and they also own the little shop across the street, which they will open for you to purchase their amazing olive oil, and other wares. We loved this restaurant so much, that we came back a second night during our stay. I truly felt the food was the best we ate in all of the restaurants we visited, including some in Florence and Rome!

Small family-run restaurant in Mensano. Food is fresh. Traditional dishes done well. Service is very good and very friendly. Chocolate salami a must for dessert.
