Really really nice restaurant, rafinated, with an beautifull localisation.
The dishes are typical, really fine, but quite expensive.
We were lucky to have a French-speaking waistress (a young Belgian girl who is really a good girl !).
There is a last remaing warning to keep in mind : the chief is not in the kitchen...
As soon you arrive in the restaurant, you can see many pictures of him. Maybe he his an important man in his collectivity, but the evening we went, one of the two usual cooker was unavailable, then the service was a little bit too long (we did not wait for the dessert). From my point of view, it would have be better for the restaurant that he spent the evening in the kitchen rather to look at the tables.

Lunch to forget. Average food compared to the price. The owner feels the king of chefs. No respect for the client, especially if he is a foreigner. For him all strangers either praise him or they do not understand anything. First and last tim

Beautiful restaurant run by chef Paolo Tizzianini. Paolo is walking arround tables checking if everything is ok. Dinner on the terrace is a must for us when in Tuscany.
Menu is changed daily for lunch and dinner, all the ingredients are evidently carefuly picked, so the meals are really delicious.
Allow waiters to suggest you Tuscan specialities and I am sure you won't regret. I tried some unbelievably good meals there.
Paolo has his own wine in bottles, I personally like his Cabernet sauvignon.
The restaurant is open the usual italian way: until 15:30 for lunch and than from 18:30 for dinner.

It's a beautiful restaurant of the famous Tuscan chef Paolo Tizzanini. But at the same time it has the old-fashioned appearance of family-owned restaurant. The first thing to mention is the location - it's just amazing. Actually we found it after getting rather lost in the olive groves thanks to google maps, it's in the midddle of nowhere. It has a big terrace with marvellous view and I don't have any words to describe it. Second - is the kitchen. It's Tuscan cuisine but rather modern and creative. They also have interesting wine list with all the producers from this zone. High quality at surprisingly low prices. Plus reaaaally romantic terrace. To visit if you are in Arezzo o Val di Chiana zone.

We booked a set dinner menu for 21 people on a business trip. The place is gorgeous, specially at night. The food was good, specially the pasta and some local specialities, but the meat was just ok. Local wine was quite average as well. The main problem however was that dinner lasted 3 hours because they were extremely slow.
