We went out looking for somewhere to eat at 9pm during a storm. Not wanting to go far from where we were staying, we didn’t think we would find anything good. Down a little side street we found Mengrello which is a simple family style restaurant in a big hall type building. The other customers were clearly locals and we were apprehensive we wouldn’t be welcomed kindly but a lovely waitress sat us down and gave us English menus. She was patient with our basic Italian and took on board allergy requests. We had to wait a little longer than usual for our order to be taken but this was only because it was very busy, with the one waitress serving an almost full restaurant with many requests! However this was not a problem (or out of the ordinary) in Italy, and our food arrived quickly. We had bruschetta and a generous cheese board to start, then a calzone and pasta primavera, followed by coffee and a tiramisu - with 2L of water it came to €36 which we think was a steal, especially considering the taste and quality of the food. Home-made family food at a cheap price in an authentic local restaurant with friendly service! We would visit again.

Despite being a little dissapointed when the meal i wanted was not available despite being on the menu. The food was good and there is lots of parking space available. You can only sit inside that’s a small negative.

We have been here 3 years ago but the restaurant did not bring what was our remembrance of our previous visit. No fish at all on the menu and the selection of antipasti was a lot of bruschetta type things and dry ham with melon. To much cheese on top of everything so no option to add it yourself. Filetto was better then the Tagliatta (meat quality) Wine was oke but relatively expensive vs suggested retail price. Had many restaurants already that served very good wines under the suggested retail price. This was the last time we have visited this restaurant.

Had long dinner with friends. I love their zucchini flowers which I also had 7 years ago last visited this place. Owner is super nice, sometimes comes to tables to meet his customers. Have good selection of wines.

We went on our first night at Toscany, as place was opened on Easter Sunday and recommended, but sorry to say it was an average restaurant, armature service, high prices and a big disappointment
