Just because we can’t speak Italian and we are tourist, this restaurant thought of cheating us.
We ordered a few dishes after asking a few questions about the menu (maybe that was what pissed them off) our order included some bruschetta mixte (for 5€ by the way) and we receive 5 small bruschetta, one with fresh tomato, one with TOMATO SAUCE, one with liver, one some pieces of GREEN SALAD. The last piece was supposed to be a slice of prociotto but they gave us a slice of fat (as you can see on be photo - I regret I didn’t photograph the whole plate)
When we ask them to change it, they explained to us that it was like that in Toscany.
I’m living in France and my origins are Italian. Besides this we have been in Toscany for a week before to eat in this place, and it was never like that.
This kind of explanation from the waiter was way too much so we decided to leave the place.
Being a tourist and not able to speak Italian is not reasons to get this kind of service.
This is my first 0 on TripAdvisor and they deserve it.
I don’t doubt the quality of their food which looked good but apparently it’s only for Italians.
Worst customer treatment ever.

The food was all good but the surprise was the focaccia with tomato and oregano that they served as an amuse bouche.

The pizza was good and they had varied ingredients such as aubergine and nduja that a lot of pizzerias hadn't offered.

Local place with a very helpful waiter. Food was tasty and there is a wide selection of beers. Good value for money, €80 for 3 starters, main and desert with beer and water.

Without a reservation, our group of 14 showed up for dinner. Tables were rearranged quickly, we had super service and everyone from the grandkids to Grandma loved our meals. From the pizza to the pasta, all raves from everyone in our party.

What a cute little place. We came for lunch during the week, in the tiny sleepy town. There wasn't a soul around.

The waiter was excellent and understanding. He was able to answer all our questions, as the menu was in Italian only.

The latte was good, the pasta was al dente and rich: the ravioli was the highlight. The caprese salad was so fresh, as was the Caesar salad. The portion of prosciutto and melon was big for a starter.

€84 for 6 people including drinks.
