We visited here on an incredibly cold day and it was wonderful little warm room. And what a view!! Had some small sandwiches, which were great and fresh! Also good quantity for price.

We found the Wi-Fi to be quite good and the service was very fast.

What added to the specialness, was there was wonderful Italian background music.

This is what we imagined a Tuscan cafe to be like! Would definitely recommend it to friends!

We had charcuterie and cheese platters, along with some lovely wine for lunch. The views were lovely, and the service from this family team was also great. All of the other plates coming out of the kitchen looked great too.

We were hungry earlier than usual (for Italians at least, 6pm perhaps) and were looking for an easy, fresh meal. We walked into this little place and found exactly what we were looking for. The front part has a deli counter where I believe they serve paninis during lunch. A group of local teens were ordering food at the counter when we arrived (always a good sign that the place you choose is good and authentic!). There are a few tables in the back with specials written on the wall. Soft Sinatra music playing in the background and windows and doors open made for a great atmosphere. The woman (who I believed to be the owner) spent several minutes describing all the specials and helping us pick out exactly what we wanted. She was so kind and did not rush us in the slightest. I ended up with one of the specials that day- panzanella. My husband had the tagliatelle with wild boar. Both were very good, my panzanella especially was so fresh and flavorful! House red wine rounded out the meal. Neither dishes were especially large, but that is exactly what we were looking for that day; a fresh homemade and easy meal.
