Arrived here at lunchtime following a recommendation to find it shut. '10 minutes ' we were told....but it was obviously Italian 10 minutes!!!
On entering we found that the owner had obviously been told that we were waiting and had set a table for two by the window.
We both had 2 courses. I am vegetarian so the owner ensured that my bruschetta had appropriate toppings. The ricotta ravioli with sage butter was delicious. Husband had pasta which he said was very light then Tuscan sausages which went down very nicely with some local Chianti.
By the time we left there were quite a few locals in enjoying their lunch.
Service is very relaxed so don't expect fast food and a quick lunch, which was perfect for us
Owner speaks a little English
This is very much off the beaten track and not easy to find, but will definitely eat here again

My husband and I hiked to San Regolo from Borgo Argenina on the recommendation of our B&B owner, and loved it! The hike finishes with a steep uphill climb, and we were so ready for a delicious Tuscan meal! In true Italian style, the restaurant opened when it was ready to open, and we built up our appetite waiting outside anxiously for 1:00 to arrive. We were not disappointed with the food and loved our lunch. It was delicious, homecooked, Tuscan food, very reasonably priced with good service. Strongly recommend eating here!
